Quick and Compassionate Emergency Dental Care

At Swan Dental, we strive to provide you with the care you need in time. While we cannot provide 24-hour service, we make every effort to cover all emergencies within the same day we receive your call. We’ll carefully examine the situation and work to provide the treatment that will best protect your dental health. We prioritize patients in need and will do what it takes to ensure you receive quality, effective dental care when you need it most.

What Qualifies as a Dental Emergency?

While no dental health problem should go untreated, some dental issues require fast action for your health and safety. Contact our office as soon as possible if you experience any of the following:

A fractured or broken tooth
A loose tooth
A tooth knocked out
Severe pain in the teeth or jaw
Swelling in your cheek or face
An abscess in the gums, especially one that has ruptured
A filling, crown, or bridge has come loose or broken

Steps to Take Before Your Emergency Appointment

Our office will do our best to have you come in as quickly as possible. While you are preparing for your appointment, certain steps may help you to increase the success of your treatment.

If a tooth has been knocked out, rinse it thoroughly with water or milk - not with soap - and place it back into the empty socket. If it cannot be placed in the socket, store the tooth in a cup of milk or water until your visit. Use sterile gloves when handling the tooth if possible.

If you have a severe toothache, rinse your mouth with a combination of salt and warm water. This acts as a sterilizing agent in case of infection. Apply a cold compress to your cheek in the general area of the ache – do not apply cold directly to the tooth.

Very impressed. Dr. Echols conducted much of the cleaning himself and thoroughly examined my teeth and gums. Staff members were friendly and professional. I'm glad I chose this practice.

Swan Dental is a very friendly yet professional Dental Office with a great atmosphere, friendly staff and Doctor. This was my first visit and was called in exactly at my appointed time; I'm am very pleased so far. I'm happy I tried them. BTW, the prices they charged were a little lower than those of my previous dentist.
Update - some months later, went in for 2 fillings. Dr Echols and his assistant had them both done in about 20 minutes, and no pain. Simply a great dental office!

I live in North Carolina and was in Tucson helping our daughter move. A poor choice in candy selection resulted the crown on a lower molar "popping off". I called several dentists on a Monday morning and one of the dentist's receptionist referred me to Swan Dental - her personal dentist. The folks at Swan were incredible. They were efficient, kind, friendly, professional ... the superlatives just keep coming. I was thrilled to be seen the same morning I called and the dentist cemented the crown expeditiously. The receptionist, assistant, and dentist were all extraordinary. I wish the dental professionals in my home town were as focused on providing such an exceptionally positive experience. Thanks!
