Treating Dental Emergencies In Salem, OR

Dental Emergencies

The only reason that we can operate at Oregon Smile Care Center are you and our patients. That is why when you run into a dental emergency, we want to always be there for you no matter what time it may be. When a dental emergency happens in your life, you can call Dr. Hanson and he will always call you back to determine how serious your dental emergency is. If we deem it to be a true emergency Dr. Hanson, and his staff will meet you at their comfortable office to remedy the problem and ease your pain. Even if it’s not deemed an emergency, Dr. Hanson will always call you back with helpful advice because he cares about you!

Everyone has heard the terrible stories about someone having an emergency and having to go to the emergency room. You may have even experienced this yourself! When you get to the emergency room, you are ushered into a dreary, cold, uncomfortable waiting room where you’ll be forced to wait for hours on end while your emergency is left untreated. At Oregon Smile Care Center, we know about this unfortunate occurrence, and that is why Dr. Hanson makes it a point to treat your dental emergency right away! When your dental emergency arises, we’ll always be there for you!

We have a number for you to call that will prompt immediate action from Dr. Hanson and his staff. We want to be available to you during all hours of the day, every day! When you contact us, we will first speak on the phone to determine your level of emergency and pain. After we ask you a few questions, we will either tell you that it’s best to see you at the first available time for Dr. Hanson, or, if the emergency is pressing enough, we will see you right away at our office in Salem, OR.

Preparing Yourself For A Dental Emergency

When a dental emergency happens, you’ll need a plan just in case you can’t transport yourself to our Salem, OR office. Sometimes, it may not be safe to drive yourself if you’re in excruciating pain because you may place other lives in danger by driving when you shouldn’t. If you’re not sure if you’re suffering from a dental injury that should be considered an emergency, call us at Oregon Smile Care Center, and we’ll talk you through the situation to determine if it is an emergency. We will have the answers to your questions about what classifies as a dental emergency.

Some things to keep in mind when you have a dental emergency:

  • If you lose a tooth, be sure to keep the tooth moist by putting it in milk or water to keep the roots and tissue alive.
  • If you have a severe toothache, rinse your mouth with warm water. Do not put aspirin on the aching tooth because it can burn the tissue surrounding the tooth.
  • If you crack a tooth, wash out your mouth with warm water and put a cold compress on the affected area to reduce swelling.
  • If you think your jaw is broken, apply a cold compress to reduce swelling and immediately call Dr. Hanson.
