As healthcare professionals, we have been trained to help you receive the care you need in a dental emergency. Generally speaking, if something is causing you pain, you need to see a dental professional. Please note that not all dental emergencies may cause immediate pain. If you have broken or chipped a tooth, do not wait until you feel pain to call a healthcare professional.

Toothaches are a sure sign something is wrong. In the event of a toothache, you should fist rinse your mouth with warm water then floss around the tooth to remove any food particles that may be causing pressure. If there is swelling, apply a cold pack to the outside of the affected area. Do not put a painkiller directly against your gums near the problematic tooth because it could cause tissue damage.

A chipped or broken tooth may or may not cause immediate pain, but it should still be fixed soon. It is advisable to save any pieces of your tooth that have broken off if at all possible. Rinse them and your mouth with warm water. If bleeding occurs, place some gauze or a moist tea bag to the area for ten minutes until bleeding has stopped. To prevent swelling and to help relieve pain, you may apply a cold compress to the outside of the area.

Partially dislodged teeth need to be treated right away. A cold pack can be placed on the outside of the mouth or cheek of the affected area to reduce pain and swelling. You may also benefit from an over-the-counter pain reliever such as Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen.

Foreign objects stuck between teeth that cannot be removed by gentle flossing must be removed by our dentist, Dr. Naman B. Patel.

Lost fillings will leave a space inside your tooth. To temporarily cover this area and prevent food particles from getting trapped, place a piece of sugarless gum into the cavity. Do not use a sugared gum because it will cause pain and sensitivity. Alternatively, you can use over-the-counter dental cement.

Abscesses are infections of the tissues around a tooth root or between the teeth and gums. They can cause serious damage to the surrounding teeth and gums, possibly spreading to other parts of the body when left untreated. To relieve pain before you are able to visit Island Dental, you may rinse your mouth several times a day with a solution of warm saltwater.

Give us a call if you think you are experiencing a dental emergency in Gilbert, Arizona. We will work to treat you as soon as possible.

I highly recommend Island Dental! I’ve been there twice and have received great dental care and advice. Christy was my hygienist today and she was incredible - it was the most thorough cleaning I’ve ever had. It took a little longer than other cleanings, but she let me know beforehand that she’s a perfectionist. She was sensitive to my needs and did a great job. Dr. Patel is nice too. When there was a claim error from a previous visit, the office staff immediately corrected it and saved me $10. They get you seen quickly too. Highly recommend overall :)

I have been coming to island dental for years and am so glad I put my trust in Dr Patel. He is very friendly and a very good dentist. My kids also go to this office and see Dr Patel. His team help accommodate to my younger kids and teenagers. I would highly recommend my friends and family to go to him.

Dr Patel and staff always make the visit comfortable, personable and perform noticeably great work . My teeth look amazing! Through their professional advisement of teeth maintenance between visits I have... no cavities and no more gum bleeding. As well as teeth care I have 4 more months of Invisaline teeth straightening to complete the process. As an adult I recommend this for your discreet teeth straightening needs. Thank you!

Very disappointed. My husband and I have been going to Island Dental for 4-5 years and have always been pleased with the experience. In the past, we’ve gotten in and out quickly and the receptionist has always been chatty and cheery. But mostly, we’ve been thrilled with the hygienists we’ve been seeing for years, Molly and Laura. This visit, we were surprised to have new hygienists (who we were not happy with), sales pitches for electric toothbrushes, water picks, crowns and Invisalign. The receptionist could barely muster words when checking out, let alone a smile. The whole experience was awful. When I asked about the hygienists we’d been seeing for years, I was told “they both don’t work here anymore.” That’s a red flag. Also, the hygienist my husband got told him she was a “fill in” and complained about customer service Indian telemarketers during their chat. Awkward. And the one I had knew I was uncomfortable with the new water pick cleaning system their using now and said “it made the process faster.” And then proceeded to dig at my teeth with regular tools for another ten minutes. Was it faster? Or could you have shown some compassion and listened to the patient. Needless to say, we’re not going back and are now on the hunt for wherever Molly and Laura went. If you’re out their ladies, find me!!! From, the Cat Couple.
