Dental Emergencies

You don’t have to live with the pain and uncertainty of a toothache or other dental emergency. Your emergency dentist in Huntsville, AL provides emergency treatment and works hard to see you as soon as possible.

A dental emergency can mean loss of work, loss of sleep, and can even lead to anxiety. At King Dental, we understand these things and want to restore your comfort and well-being promptly.

Your Emergency Dentist in Huntsville, AL

Your dentist does not want you to risk your smile by trying to wait out a dental emergency, treating it with ice or pain medications, and hoping it will resolve on its own. This approach can cause symptoms to worsen, infections to spread; it can even mean tooth loss, and systemic health problems.

Your emergency dentist treats the following:

  • Broken tooth or restoration
  • Loosened tooth or restoration
  • Knocked-out tooth or restoration
  • Toothache
  • Severe tooth sensitivity
  • Jaw pain or swelling
  • Tissue injuries
  • Object stuck between teeth

If you have a dental health issue that is unusual and differs from the above list, we still want to hear from you. Our team can discuss your symptoms with you and make the safest recommendation for your ongoing oral health and comfort.

However, if you have been involved in an impact trauma such as a car accident or serious fall, we strongly urge you to go to your nearest emergency room for assessment and treatment. You can contact a member of our dental team from this location after you’ve been treated and cleared.

Remember, your dentist in Huntsville, AL wants to help you!

Best Practices to Reduce Your Risks

Preventive dentistry is the foundation for healthy teeth and gums. With proper dental care—coupled with proactive home care—you can drastically reduce your risks for oral health complications like cavities, gingivitis, and dental emergencies.

The American Dental Association recommends:

  • Twice-yearly exams and cleans to spot dental health issues before they turn into serious complications and to remove the debris that leads to specific oral health conditions and infections
  • At least twice daily brushing and flossing sessions at home—a member of our team can provide tips to help you optimize your regimen.
  • Lowering your intake of acidic and sugary foods and beverages

If you have an oral health condition, your dentist may alter your dental exam and teeth cleaning schedule and provide a more customized brushing and flossing plan at home.

We also recommend wearing the proper face or mouth gear when participating in contact or open field sports like wrestling, football, hockey, and baseball. And always go to sleep with a nightguard if you grind and clench your teeth.
