Pure Dental Health offers Same Day Treatment for dental emergencies. A dental emergency is typically very painful and needs immediate treatment.

Dental pain can range from mild to severe. As soon as you begin to notice symptoms it is important to schedule your dental appointment. Waiting will only make matters worse, more painful, and possibly more expensive.

Regardless of your stage of life, tooth pain can be disruptive. A sudden toothache can cause you to miss work or school as well as threaten your ability to eat and sleep comfortably.

Same Day Treatment

Please read important note

What You Need to Know

We are committed to helping you the same day whenever possible but want to set the right expectations upfront.

Many times sedation is required to alleviate pain comfortably.

Same Day Sedation May Be Possible If:
  • You arrive with a responsible driver to drive you home
  • You have not had anything to eat or drink six hours before the appointment (including water)
  • Your medical condition is stable (e.g., high blood pressure, diabetes, uncontrolled bleeding, and pregnancy may exclude you from sedation without your doctor’s medical clearance)
  • Some procedures (such as complicated extractions) always require sedation

Schedule and Arrive as Soon as Possible
Because others also have emergencies, our scheduling rule is first-come-first-served. Most of the time, we can schedule you in quickly. However, there are times when our schedule is already full, and you may have to wait a while.

Our emergency guarantee is that if you arrive before noon, we will provide same day dental care. There may be situations where you won’t be able to get to the office by noon. If this is the case, we will still strive to meet and treat you the same day. We cannot guarantee emergency treatment later than noon, especially if you arrive past 4 pm. If you come in late in the afternoon, please understand that there are limitations to accomplishing our goal to treat you the same day. At the very least, we should be able to take an X-ray and give you pain medication and antibiotics if needed. We do not, however, prescribe narcotics without a financial commitment towards recommended treatment. The best course of action is to call our front desk and ask about the day’s schedule.

Most dental offices DO NOT offer same day emergency services.

Your Specific Health
Your dental condition and appropriate treatment will also determine whether we’ll be able to treat you the same day. Some procedures require a surgeon. If a surgeon is not in the office that day, then you’ll need to get antibiotics and prescriptions and come back on a day the surgeon is available. Patients with a complicated medical history like uncontrolled blood pressure or diabetes may require a medical release and cannot be treated the same day. Also, patients requiring labwork for procedures such as dentures or partials cannot be treated on the same day; labwork must be sent out for analysis.

Procedures That Cannot Be Done the Same day
While all of our doctors have general dentistry training and can treat most urgent cases, doctors have different skill levels. Some of our providers are trained for extremely complex dental surgery. However, these doctors are not always readily available at the office. Also, while we’re able to start some procedures on the same day, they may take multiple appointments to finish. For example, implants typically involve multiple steps.

In order to be sedated, you cannot have food or drink six hours prior to your appointment, and you must have a ride arranged. If you are fearful, nervous, or require more advanced dental surgery (like wisdom teeth removal), then you most most likely will require sedation.

If you hope to have same day dentistry performed under sedation, then you must arrive as early as possible (ideally before noon), with an empty stomach and a ride ready. Also, make sure a dentist trained in IV sedation is available that day by calling our office.

Schedulers Cannot Guarantee Anything Over the Phone

We must see you to provide a diagnosis and determine your treatment options. Phone schedulers can not tell you anything for sure over the phone.
