Emergency Dental Service
Immediate assistance when you need it the most
Emergency dental services can make the difference between losing a tooth, or saving it. Most emergency rooms can’t help with a dental emergency. If you’re having a dental emergency, your dentist can best treat you. Waiting for treatment isn’t an option, and at Soundview Family Dental, we put our patients and their dental emergencies first.

Why choose our
emergency dentist in Edmonds
Don’t delay treatment – get the help you need now. We set aside hours in our scheduling each day to accommodate dental emergencies. This allows us to treat patients who are in severe pain and can’t wait, or those who have had an injury to their teeth, like a tooth being dislodged or displaced. While your first instinct may be to go to the emergency room, we urge you to contact our office first. In most cases, we can assess the problem over the phone and determine whether you should be seen immediately, or if the situation can wait to be resolved the next day (if outside of regular office hours).
We do have an after-hours line available. The line is accessible whenever you need to contact our dentist in an emergency. When you call, an emergency dentist will go over your specific situation and whether it requires immediate attention. If the problem can wait until the next business day, we will fit you in quickly in the dedicated slots we have open for emergencies.
Let us care for your smile!

Prevent the reventable
Untimely tooth loss is something no one wants to go through. Losing a tooth can affect your confidence in a major way. However, just because a tooth is loose or even if it has come out of the socket, there are options available to save it. If your tooth has come out, keep the tooth. It may be possible for us to position the tooth and prevent permanent tooth loss. When calling after hours, our dentist can advise the best way to avoid tooth loss, and preserve your tooth for restoration.
For those who are experiencing severe pain, we can help solve this problem as well. We know that pain from an infected tooth or abscess is one of the worst pains a person can experience. We can address the issue quickly, and help you to feel better sooner.
Urgency Is Key
Emergency dental care is critical when your teeth are on the line. If you’ve had an accident or trauma to your mouth, or you’ve had a tooth knocked out, the first step is not to panic. While losing a tooth or having a permanent tooth that wiggles can be frightening, it doesn’t mean that you need to lose hope.
Taking quick action can make all the difference. Our Edmonds dental office is always here to reassure you, and to advise what you should do while waiting for an appointment if your emergency can wait till the next day.
At our office, we provide compassionate and personalized emergency dental care services to help you address unexpected dental issues. Dr. Kitts, our experienced dentist, and our team are available to assist you during dental emergencies, including severe toothaches, broken teeth, and oral injuries. We use the latest technology and techniques to diagnose and treat your dental emergency promptly and effectively. Our dedicated team is committed to providing you with the highest level of care and attention,

Can I go to the emergency room for a dental emergency?
While it’s generally best to see a dentist for dental emergencies, you may need to visit an emergency room if:
- You’re experiencing severe swelling or difficulty breathing, which could indicate a severe infection.
- You’ve suffered a jaw injury or dislocation.
- There’s uncontrolled bleeding from the mouth.
However, keep in mind that most hospital emergency rooms don’t have a dentist on staff, so you may still need to see your dentist for follow-up care.
How can I prevent dental emergencies?
While not all dental emergencies can be prevented, you can take steps to reduce your risk:
- Maintain good oral hygiene with regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups.
- Wear a mouthguard during sports or physical activities to protect your teeth from injury.
- Avoid using your teeth as tools to open packages or bite hard objects.
Seek dental treatment for any ongoing issues or concerns, such as toothaches or loose restorations.
