  • Dental Trauma – A dental injury needs to be treated as soon as possible. Contact us at once for an emergency appointment.

Your Child Will Relax With Our Dental Sedation Options

Many kids get nervous when it comes to visiting the dentist. If they’re facing a dental emergency, their anxiety may be even worse. Fortunately, the team at Evergreen Pediatric Dentistry will help your child relax with our dental sedation options. We offer two great methods of sedation that will ease your little one’s anxiety and help them get the treatment they need. Their sedation choices are detailed below:

  • Inhaled Sedation – We’ll administer sweet-smelling laughing gas through a comfortable mask over your child’s nose. It is safe and gentle enough for children and will help them relax during their treatment. In moments after breathing in the gas, your child will begin to feel light and slightly euphoric. This sedative effective will help them forget about being nervous so they can lie back comfortably while we work.
  • General Anesthesia – If your little one experiences more intense dental anxiety or needs to undergo an extended procedure, you may consider this sedation option. A medical anesthesiologist will administer this anesthesia, which will put your child in a sleep-like state. They’ll be completely unaware of any of the experiences of their exam or procedure. We’ll wake them up when we’re finished and they’ll have no memory of their dental work.

Put your child’s smile in our competent hands. Call us now for any dental emergencies in Kirkland: 425-800-0578. For non-emergency needs, you can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Dental Emergencies

Can you help with my child’s dental emergency?

Over more than two decades of dental practice, Dr. Susan has helped countless children with dental emergencies. You can rest confidently in her skills and expertise to help make your child’s smile right. Our top-notch dental team delivers compassionate and gentle care and will make sure your little one receives the best treatment possible during their dental crisis.

What are common dental emergencies that kids have?

There are few emergencies that Dr. Susan hasn’t seen in her many years of practice. Some are certainly more common than others. Emergencies that we see often include toothaches caused by a cavity or an infection, cracked teeth, and broken teeth. In most cases, we’re able to resolve all these situations with restorative dentistry.

Can I take my child to the ER for dental emergencies?

Yes, you can. However, since they don’t have dentists on staff, your child won’t be able to get a tooth filling, pulpotomy, extraction, or other dental procedure. If they have an infection, the ER can provide antibiotics to keep it under control until they can see us. ER doctors may also be able to prescribe pain-relieving medication that is stronger than an over-the-counter medication.

What if I have a dental emergency without insurance?

Just because you don’t have dental insurance doesn’t mean you shouldn’t receive the same level of care as someone who does. We’ll happily treat your dental emergency, and we provide several payment options to take care of the cost, including third-party financing through CareCredit. We’ll do our best to make sure you get the care you need.
