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

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 exceptional treatment and works hard to see you as soon as possible.

Emergency Dentistry 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 without treatment. This approach can cause symptoms to worsen, infections to spread, and even lead to tooth loss and systemic health problems.

Your emergency dentist treats the following:

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

If your dental emergency isn't listed here, 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 an impact trauma such as a car accident or severe 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 Dental Emergency Risks

Preventive dentistry is the foundation for healthy teeth and gums. With proper dental care and proactive home care, you can drastically reduce your risks for oral health complications like cavities, gingivitis, a missing crown, or other dental emergencies.

The American Dental Association recommends:

  • Twice-yearly exams and cleanings 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 protective gear or custom mouthguard 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.
