Common Problems, Real Assistance

Please take a look at our help guide for dental emergencies.

Are you suffering from a...
  • Broken Tooth

    Try a save any pieces of the tooth that have broken away. Rinse them in warm water, place in a clean container, and cover with them in milk, water, and some salt.

    Rinse the injured person’s mouth with warm water and attempt to stop any bleeding. Apply a clean gauze or cloth to the area and apply pressure. If the bleeding doesn’t stop after 10 minutes then call our dental team or go to the hospital.

  • Knocked Out Tooth

    When a tooth is knocked out, you need to act fast – call us asap!

    Only hold the tooth by the crown – do not touch the root.

    Rinse the injured person’s mouth with warm water and attempt to stop any bleeding. Apply a clean gauze to the area and apply pressure. If the bleeding doesn’t stop after 10 minutes then call our dental team or go to the hospital.

    Where possible, attempt to replace the tooth into the gum socket. Do not be too firm but gently place some pressure.

    If you can’t replace it, then rinse the tooth in warm water, place in a small container, and cover with milk, water, and some salt.

  • Lost Crown or Filling

    When you lose a crown or a filling, it is extremely rare that we need to see you the same day. Please schedule an appointment with us. Prior to your visit, here is what you need to do:

    Fillings: If you find the filling, place in a clean container and bring it with you to your appointment.

    Crowns: If you find the crown, give it a good clean and line the inside with toothpaste or dental adhesive. You can then attempt to replace it or keep safe in a container.

  • Toothache

    If you are suffering from a severe toothache then inspect the tooth and clean the area. Use floss to remove any debris and check the gum line too. If the pain persists then please call our Seattle dentist at 206-622-2999.

The staff is great and they make the experience enjoyable. They take a lot of pride in the small touchpoints and details. Thanks for all you do!

I have been going to Innovative Dentistry for over 20 years. The staff is great. Mary has been my hygienist for most of the 20 years I have been their patient. She is outstanding and when I have been treated by other hygienists they have been great as well. I highly recommend Innovative Dentistry.

Came in for a deep cleaning, as well as some lasering to clean up my gums. Pretty intense and nasty business. I’ve never felt so well cared for in my life - the two hours passed quickly, and despite the Intensity of the procedure, I walked away feeling relaxed and happy. Hats off to the Innovative Dentistry team – you hire very well!!!

It's clean, the atmosphere is surprisingly cozy, and everyone is incredibly welcoming and makes you feel really comfortable. Megan is such a great conversationalist and makes appointments fly by! Unfortunately, Humphrey the therapy dog doesn't work there anymore though 🙁
