We prevent the problems that lead to emergency care; provide peace of mind when unwanted surprises arise

Toothaches are a leading reason many patients contact dentists for “after-hours care” to resolve dental emergencies. Fortunately, Dr. Kevin Pulsipher and the team at Mint Dental in Meridian, Idaho, can prevent toothaches and the need for immediate care. Commonly, aching teeth are caused by progressive oral conditions. Since there are many opportunities to detect and intervene with conditions such as dental decay and periodontal disease (gum disease), damage can be stopped before it progresses to cause severe pain and threaten the structure of the teeth and supportive tissues. 

In your time of need, trust the dental professionals

Our patients also have peace of mind that their health, safety, and appearance are in the most capable hands should they encounter oral injuries, trauma, and the whole gamut of emergencies that can affect the oral cavity (mouth), jaws, and face. However, some of these injuries can be prevented during regular visits to our practice. For instance, patients prone to traumatic injuries to the lips, teeth, and oral tissues can benefit from protective mouthguards. 

These mouthguards are customized to the unique measurements and specifications of the patient and effectively protect against damage caused by blows to the face during contact sports such as basketball or hockey. They are an excellent investment for you or your child’s health because preventative measures are considerably less costly, time-consuming, and invasive than restorative care to treat damage like dental fractures or avulsed (knocked-out) teeth. 

Unfortunately, dental woes can still strike even if you practice near-perfect preventive dentistry. Some dental issues can wait for the next appointment, but others need urgent care within 24-48 hours to resolve pain and restore oral health. When you experience the following dental issues, call your emergency dentist immediately.

  • A debilitating toothache
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • A broken tooth
  • Dental abscess
  • Bleeding gums or cheeks
  • Loose or fallen dental fillings or crowns

Care begins immediately after you call us. Our team will instruct you to handle your dental emergency before arriving at our clinic. When you reach our office, we’ll promptly diagnose your issue and recommend corrective care, including dental crowns, fillings, a root canal, or dental extraction.
