Some Common Dental Emergencies That We Handle At Our Sugar House & Salt Lake Office

  • Broken Or Cracked Tooth – If a tooth breaks or cracks, then the nerve of the tooth gets exposed. An exposed nerve as we know is extremely sensitive to temperature, especially to cold. The immediate effect is intense pain and worry. The diet schedule also gets disrupted.
  • Sudden Tooth Ache – Toothaches are a common dental emergency. It is mainly caused due to the inflammation of the central portion of the teeth, known as pulp. The pulp containing nerve endings is susceptible to pain.
  • Knocked Out Tooth – A knocked out tooth is a result of accident or external injury. A knocked out teeth leave the temperature sensitive nerve exposed, resulting in massive pain and swelling.
  • Loss Of Filling – Fillings are used to cover the cavities of the teeth. Sometimes, the fillings come out due to a decay underneath the service, thereby causing a dental emergency.
  • Intense Bleeding – Bleeding in the mouth is often caused by periodontitis or low platelet count. Whatever the reason is, it must be dealt with immediately by an emergency dentist.
  • Gum Infection – Gum infection, like Abscess, is a major threat to the oral health of the patients. It not only affects the tooth but also the areas around it. An abscess is a serious dental disorder that requires emergency dental care by expert emergency dentist

I went in for a complimentary visit. ALL of the staff were SUPER friendly, cooperative with all of my requests, and helpful. When Dr. Carter was asked to speak with me, he spent much time explaining my options and even drawing me a diagram when I misinterpreted something he had explained to me in very good detail. I have nothing but positive comments for the treatment I received from Salt Lake Dental. I experienced very positive vibes from the moment I entered the door until the time I left. The experience was a VERY positive one! There was NOTHING negative. All was handled with great professionalism and courtesy!!

Wow, really amazing service. Everyone seems happy to be there. Patients included. I came in for a cleaning and was greeted with massage chair and a kind dental hygienist. She explained what exactly was going on and what work I needed. I appreciate that they did not get pushy when I declined services. Too often places don’t tell you why you need the work while trying to convince you to get more work. This is that dentist!

I had a very pleasant experience at this office. The dental tech that helped during my consultation was very bubbly and helpful, and Dr. B who performed my double wisdom tooth extraction was kind and efficient and made it super easy to handle the procedure. I had no adverse effects and the healing process was not painful at all. The one thing I could say was that I did have to ask to speak to a doctor when asked to make a decision while I still had some questions during the consultation. Overall, SLD made this a quick, easy, and painless process for me as a first time/out of state client.

I am very appreciative of all the employees at Salt Lake Dental. They were able to get me in on a emergency. Then they explained everything to me and made sure I understood. They were also great at making sure I was not in any pain while the process was going on and then sat and made sure I knew what to do when I went home. They were great!! Thank you for everything.
