How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in Tucson

Our dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.

Find an emergency dentist open 24/7 in TucsonTucson has around 270 dentists2, which is a high number, considering the whole state of Arizona has around 3,600 dentists. According to a research done by McKinsey & Company, around 41% of adults in Arizona haven’t been to the dentist in the last 12 months3. Not going to the dentist for that long can be very bad for your dental health. Preventive care is very important if you want to keep your teeth healthy. Going to the dentist every six months for regular checkups and cleanings will prevent you from developing dental problems, which will make you seek out an emergency dentist for an extensive procedure. These procedures include a root canal treatment, a tooth extraction, treating an infection, or having to install a crown. All of these treatments are costly and can be easily avoided if you regularly see the dentist so he can stop the problem, such as a cavity, from spreading and damaging the rest of your tooth.

Locating an emergency dentist is something we specialize in, which can be seen from how fast we can schedule an appointment with a dentist near you. In under three minutes, our dental referral specialists can locate an emergency dentist near you, regardless of your insurance or what time of the day you call us, because our lines are open 24/7.

Things to know before your emergency dentist appointment

Preparing for your emergency dental visit will help minimize anxiety and reduce the overall time you will have to spend at the dentist office.

Checklist prior to visiting an emergency dentist in TucsonBefore you have your emergency dentist appointment you should listen to our advice if you want to reduce your anxiety level. Many people are afraid of the dentist, and if you are too, you should tell us when calling us to schedule an appointment for you. This way we can find a dentist for you that uses sedation. Nitrous oxide, widely known as laughing gas, is used to make patients more relaxed when having a procedure done. There are other numerous ways to make you less anxious.

If you get a good night’s sleep before your appointment, you will feel well rested and less prone to stress. A good idea is not drinking any caffeinated or sugary drinks before you go to the dentist. Even though these give you energy for the day, they also make you more nervous, which is something you want to avoid when going to the dentist. When going to the dentist office, bring a friend with you. Knowing that someone you know is in the waiting room while you’re having your procedure done will make you feel safer. When in the dentist’s chair you can agree with the dentist of a signal you can show him to give you a short break or to show him you’re feeling pain. If you don’t like the sound of the drill, bring your headphones and listen to your favorite music to calm you down. Having something to hold on during your treatment, such as a stress relief ball, will make you feel relaxed as well.

Emergency dentist walk-in visit in Tucson without an appointmentOut of the 41% of people that haven’t been to the dentist in one year, 22% say that the reason for not going was trouble finding a dentist, while 28% said that they found location or time inconvenient, according to the American Dental Association4. Too many people don’t go to the dentist because of a simple issue like locating a dentist near them and scheduling an appointment in the time that’s most convenient for them. Since we cooperate closely with many dentists in Tucson, we have access to their appointment books. What this means is that even if you give us a call at night when all the dentist offices near you are closed, we can schedule an appointment for you for the first thing next day. Also according to the ADA, only 4% of offices work on Sundays, and 45% work on Saturdays5. This will make it difficult for you to locate an emergency dentist yourself, even if you’re using websites such as Yelp. Calling us is the best way to immediately get to a dentist near you, or at a time that best suits you.

The same goes for walk-in dentists. If you’re looking for a walk-in dentist, it probably means you know where a dentist is located, so you will go there and see if he has time for you that day. Unfortunately, most dentists work by appointment only and going there unannounced will likely result in you getting turned away by the staff at the dentist office.

Illustration of top dental emergencies in TucsonOne of the top emergencies is a knocked out tooth. You would be surprised how often it can happen either during sports, or even during regular activities such as cleaning around the house. If your tooth gets knocked out, pick it up by the head, while avoiding touching the root. Rinse the tooth under warm water, but don’t scrub the root of the tooth because it can have tissue that will later help the dentist save it. If you can, put the tooth back into its socket and bite down gently until you get to an emergency dentist. In case you can’t, put it in a container filled with milk. Seeing a dentist as soon as possible will increase the chances of the dentist saving your tooth.
