Dental Emergencies

Breaking or knocking out a tooth, experiencing a toothache or unusual jaw pain, or losing a dental restoration can come as a surprise. In these situations, a visit to the emergency room or your primary care physician probably is not the best option for immediate pain relief. At Lane Family Dental, we can assess your situation and immediately help relieve your discomfort. Then, Dr. Jason Lane and our team will explain the dental treatment necessary to restore optimal oral health, for long-term comfort.

Lane Family Dental provides immediate care for dental emergencies in Wasilla, AK. Call us at (907) 373-2200 for urgent treatment or to book an appointment.

Common Dental Emergencies

We have the proper equipment and expertise to assess and solve dental emergencies. If you aren’t sure whether an emergency dental appointment is necessary, call us. We’ll talk with you over the phone to help you determine the best course of action.

Here are a few situations in which an immediate visit would be necessary.

Chipped or Cracked Tooth

Chipped or cracked teeth almost always create dental emergencies, and an increasing toothache will let you know that it’s time to call the dentist. This type of injury can cause nerve damage if not promptly treated. If an entire adult tooth is completely knocked out, gently pick up the tooth or pieces of tooth and place it in a container of the patient’s saliva or regular milk. Bring it to our office, and (if possible) call us on your way to let us know you’re coming.

Jaw Pain

If you experience jaw pain after a sports injury or accident, the issue could be dental or medical. If bone, muscle, and skin are not involved, jaw pain can be an indicator of deep tooth decay, fracture, infection, or TMJ disorder. If the pain keeps you from working or sleeping, call for an emergency visit. Otherwise, schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

Damaged Dental Work

If dental work, such as fillings, crowns, or a bridge, is damaged in any way, you’ll need to see the dentist. The timeline for visiting our office depends upon your pain level. If your toothache is not severe, use a dab of dental wax to reseat your filing or crown until you can schedule an appointment. Severe pain that interferes with daily activities constitutes a dental emergency, in which case we will see you immediately.

Toothaches

Much like jaw pain, toothaches may or may not be a dental emergency, depending on the level of pain and trauma. We encourage you to schedule an appointment when experiencing any oral discomfort. Teeth do not heal if left alone; they require professional treatment by a dentist. Extreme tooth pain usually signals a problem that requires fast attention, so call or come by our office for a same-day emergency visit.

We’re Here to Serve Your Family

At Lane Family Dental, we understand emergencies need immediate attention, so we provide the flexibility in our schedule for patients to come in on short notice. If you are unsure whether you need immediate attention, don’t hesitate to call us and let our trained professionals help you evaluate the issue.

Our goal is to provide our patients with immediate relief by treating dental emergencies promptly and thoroughly. After relieving a patient’s pain, Dr. Lane will address the underlying issue or damage to restore optimal oral health and function. Call (907) 373-2200 so that we can assess your emergency and see you the same day or schedule an appointment with Dr. Lane, at Lane Family Dental in Wasilla, AK.

About a year or so ago I discovered Lane Dental. Due to circumstances in my life I hadn’t been to a dentist in a really long time. They were very caring and kind. Since then I’ve had some teeth removed and am currently having a partial made. They have been patiently working with me and my insurance. Asia has been wonderful to work with for my scheduling and Dr. lane has been so kind and gentle. His assistants have been a real pleasure also. Thank you to the entire staff ?

The best dentist I’ve had in my 60 years. Absolutely impeccably clean facilities. New facilities. The latest techniques and strategies to provide excellent dental care. And most of all the least amount of pain I’ve ever felt at the dentist.

Fantastic customer service! Everybody there is very friendly and easy to talk to. They explained everything that was going on with my teeth, provided a plan to get them back in good shape, and cleaned em up real nice. It may have been a while since my last trip to a dentist, but I don't remember the visits being so relaxing.

Great atmosphere, staff, and dentist. I had a bad experience the last time I went to the dentist so I was petrified to go in but this place was totally relieving. Me and my family will always be coming here with our dental needs.

My husband and I recently found Lane Family Dental. We are both so pleased with their professionalism, modern equipment and outstanding care. The people at the front and Dr. Lane's dental assistant are bright, cheeful and professional as well. Living in Talkeetna we are so pleased they have two offices, one being in Willow which is quite convenient. Thank you Lane Family Dental for providing such great care to the Mat-Su Valley.

I'm pretty self conscious about my teeth, when I went into Lane Family Dental I felt very comfortable, and welcomed as soon as I opened the door. The staff here are amazing! I also enjoy how customer based the office is with refreshments, massage chairs and Netflix. After 10 years of trying to find a good dentist, Dr. Lane is by far the best.

I had so much built up anxiety from not going to regular dental check ups like I probably should have but the staff was phenomenal! They all made me feel comfortable, didn't judge me, and had great hospitality. The hygentist was sweet, and gentle. I have not experienced that in a long time. I'm actually excited to go back in a few months for another cleaning. From the time I walked in to the time I left I felt like I chose the right place to go.

This is the second time I’ve gone here and I’m still blown away by the service and attention to detail. Prior to these guys, I used to dread dental visits. At this office, they go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and happy. We just had our first child three weeks ago and I had to bring him with. I hoped that he would sleep through, but of course he woke up as soon as I showed up for the appt. He was hungry, but instead of getting upset with sticking to time schedules, they encouraged me to make sure he ate enough and burped before we started. He was still fussy, so their receptionist (she is amazing) held him while their dental hygienist (she was also awesome) did my x-rays and then we tucked him in the chair with me during the cleaning. Love it! My teeth are super shiny clean and both this mamma and her baby are very satisfied customers. ^_^
