Emergency Dental Treatment

There is never a right time to sustain a dental emergency. A dental emergency can include injuries from sporting activities or other accidents that may affect your jaw or teeth in the form of a toothache, chipped tooth, or tooth loss etc.

When a dental emergency takes place, the faster you access an emergency dentist near you, the higher the possibility of saving your tooth through emergency dental care.

When Do You Need Emergency Dental Services?

An emergency would be an issue needing immediate attention due to pain or injury.

You might require emergency dental care if you suffer from any of these conditions:

Lost Temporary Crown

Fortunately, losing a temporary crown is not a dental emergency. We primarily use them as space holders until the permanent restorations are ready. Even in the span of 2 weeks, the adjacent teeth can start to shift into the area created during the crown preparation. A temporary crown maintains space for the permanent crown, along with providing some chewing function and protection for the underlying tooth. If you lose a temporary crown, call our office and we will see you as soon as possible (typically the same afternoon/ following day).

Remaking or recementing a temporary crown only takes about 20 minutes and usually does not require any anesthetic. Your teeth will not move significantly in the one to two days between losing your crown and having it replaced at our office. If it happens over the weekend and you are having excessive discomfort you can place the temporary crown back on the tooth with toothpaste or by purchasing temporary cement from your local pharmacy. in our office the next day.

Toothache Relief

If you experience tooth pain or discomfort, see your dentist in West Des Moines as soon as possible. This can be a sign of a larger issue that needs urgent attention. If this occurs after hours pain can generally be managed by alternating Tylenol and Ibuprofen. (Please only take medications that you know you are able to take).

Swollen Jaw Relief

A swollen jaw can be caused by a range of issues, from trauma to infection, and can require an emergency dentist visit in Des Moines, Iowa. Avoid excess stress on the jaw from chewing gum or hard foods. Moist heat applied to the outside of the cheek, near the jaw joint, can also alleviate pain. If you are able to, taking an over the counter anti-inflammatory medication can also be beneficial.

Lost Filling and Crown Repair

When you lose a filling or crown that covers a tooth, it can be quite a painful experience. Our emergency dental care is here to help alleviate the underlying issue. If you lose a filling or crown, or it becomes loose, call our dental office in Des Moines to schedule the earliest possible appointment. If this occurs after hours a temporary fix is available. Most Walmart or Walgreens locations sell temporary cement and temporary filling material. This is a great option to get you through the weekend and evening.

Abscess or Infection

When you develop unexpected infections, it can lead to pain and loss of sleep. Our goal is to always help our patients maintain their oral health. If you notice swelling or pimples on your gums you should contact your dental office immediately. If this is an after-hours emergency you may need to consider seeking care at an ER. Infection is not something you want to ignore.

Dental Repair

Accidents happen, and sometimes they affect our teeth. If a tooth is broken, chipped, becomes loose, or is knocked out, our team is here to help!

If there is bleeding apply pressure to the area with a clean towel or gauze. Remember mouth injuries typically produce more blood, so don’t panic. If the injury extends to the lips or cheeks and may require stitches, seeking care at the ER is a good idea. It is often necessary to have an x-ray to check the health of the tooth, and this may require follow up at a later date.

For any other medical or dental emergencies, call 911 immediately to find the care you need. Please remember this information is generalized. Do not take any medications in excess or if you know you have allergies to them.

My teeth look great when I leave and I am in and out quickly, which I appreciate. The dentist are all wonderful and I trust them. They also have wonderful whitening options. Been going for several years now and I'm never disappointed.read more

I had to get fillings for the first time and I was nervous wreck. Noelle and Jennifer were talking the whole time about their lives and they kept me calm. Noelle's playlist was great and they were both professional! They made sure I was doing alright and not feeling anything every couple minutes or if I was wincing. They would stop immediately and asked if I needed a break.read more

My daughter has had a number of bad dental experiences and has become a challenging/anxious patient. She’s now had her first cleaning and a filling, all within a week. The staff was able to help her manage her anxiety and made it a great experience for both of us - something I didn’t think was possible.read more

Susan was absolutely phenomenal! I have a huge fear of anything doctor or dentist related and she made the trip so great! She explained as she went, she took the time to listen to me and she gave me great information to everything I asked. She was very thorough and knowledgeable. She was efficient, but I did not feel rushed at all. The entire office was very nice and friendly and so welcoming. And the extra things they offer to make sure you're comfortable (warm neck towel, paraffin wax hand dip, extra water, etc) made it the most relaxing trip to the dentist I've ever experienced. 100% recommending to everyone I know and will never go anywhere else! Thank you Susan and the entire office staff! I actually look forward to my next appointment!read more

My husband and I have been getting our dental needs met at Plaza Dental since 2013, even though we live 2 hours away. The staff has been super friendly and has made our dental visits pleasant. We have been very happy with their services until yesterday. My husband had an appointment to have a cavity filled. When he arrived, he was told that the dentist scheduled to do the job had decided to take Tuesdays off. There was no text or phone call to notify my husband of the change. Furthermore, he was told he would have to come back next week because all their dentists were busy. If I have my way, we will be finding a new place where our business is appreciated.Wed, Sept, 18, 2018This morning I received a voicemail from Plaza Dental asking me to call them. I talked with Jolanda, the office manager. I learned that Dr. Mohan saw my review. She visited with her staff this morning about what had happened, which I greatly appreciate. I also mentioned to Jolanda what I thought would be a fair compensation for Bruce's inconvenience. Jolanda relayed the message to Dr. Mohan. I later recieved a voicemail stating that Dr. Mohan had agreed to my request. I thank Dr. Mohan for that, as well as taking my review seriously, and for her quickness in resolving the issue. I also thank Jolanda for listening to me , and for telling me that Plaza Dental does value my family as clients. Plaza Dental is back to being a 5 star in my opinion.read more

I had went through a frustrating experience with a whitening treatment at Plaza and upon voicing my concerns, these guys went SO above and beyond to really help me and assure that I would have an option that was satisfactory.They were more than accommodating and helpful on finding a resolution and doing everything they could to assist me with the issue. It really means a lot to me that a company would take the time to hear out my concerns and do what they could to make it right, no questions asked. I look forward to continuing my care with them in the future and the way they handled an unfortunate experience speaks VOLUMES!Thank you to everyone at the clinic who took the time to help me! It's appreciated more than you all know!read more
