If you experience a dental emergency, be sure to call our Issaquah dental practice as soon as possible. If you need immediate attention after hours, call our emergency phone number and our on-call staff member will help you.
Our goal is to accommodate you as best as possible, fitting you into our schedule as soon as we can. Most dental emergencies, especially those that involve pain or discomfort, are seen in the same day. Dental emergencies are very stressful, so we do whatever we can to eliminate as much of that stress as possible.
Dr. Sherman provides treatment for a variety of dental emergencies:
- Toothaches: A toothache can be a symptom of several problems, including a cavity, tooth fracture, or abscess.
- Broken crown: Replacing a broken crown is vital to maintaining a good bite and protecting the tooth roots from damage.
- Lost fillings: To prevent further damage, it is essential to replace a filling if it is lost. Dr. Sherman offers composite fillings.
- Chipped teeth: A chip in a tooth is not only a cosmetic issue—it can also affect the health of your tooth. Correcting a chipped tooth maintains the structure and strength of the tooth, and reduces the risk of infection to the tooth’s interior.
