Same Day Appointments Q&A

What are same-day appointments?

If you need to see a dentist within 24 hours, the WA Dental team proudly offers same-day appointments. Scheduling a dental appointment can be nerve-wracking for patients. Many dentists schedule visits weeks in advance and provide little flexibility for patients who need prompt care. 

WA Dental understands the dangers of pushing off a dental visit. Rather than ask patients to wait for a convenient time to book a visit, the team welcomes same-day appointments. 

Why might I need same-day appointments?

The WA Dental team recommends scheduling a same-day appointment if you have a dental concern that can’t wait more than 24 hours. Common reasons to schedule a same-day appointment with the team include:

  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Fractured tooth
  • Toothache
  • Dental abscess
  • Lost filling, crown, or bridge
  • Cracked dentures
  • Emergency root canal

If you’re unsure whether you need a same-day appointment, contact the staff at WA Dental and discuss your concern.

How do I know if I need same-day appointments?

Warning signs that you need same-day dentistry may not be apparent at first. Understanding when you need care can help you avoid potentially severe complications, such as deep infection or tooth loss. 

The team may recommend scheduling a same-day appointment if you:

  • Lose a permanent tooth
  • Suffer a facial injury
  • Experience jaw or facial swelling
  • Fracture a tooth
  • Suffer severe tooth pain
  • Have red, tender gums
  • Have a darkened tooth

WA Dental can assess your dental concerns and recommend the appropriate treatment.

What are the benefits of same-day appointments?

Same-day appointments offer many benefits for patients who need responsive care, including:

  • Convenience
  • Oral health protection
  • Pain reduction
  • Tooth preservation
  • Improved communication
  • Short wait times

If you have a dental emergency, a same-day appointment is an affordable alternative to visiting an emergency room. Same-day care may also help you save cost on potentially expensive treatments. For example, if you have deep decay, an emergency root canal may be less costly than an extraction and dental implant surgery in the future.

Your dental team at WA Dental can help determine if you may benefit from same-day care.
