At Bellevue Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we can address serious oral pain, injuries, and infections with a capable touch, helping you return to your routine and your confident smile as soon as possible.

Unparalleled Experience & Qualifications
Dr. Preet has been working in the dental field for over 15 years, and her empathetic, patient-focused approach is the ideal fit for dental emergency situations. She also regularly attends continuing education courses in order to advance her skills to new heights.
She and the rest of our team will accommodate your emergency as soon as possible following your initial call – in most cases, we can even fit you in on the very same day for effective, pain-relieving care so that you’re never left waiting for much-needed relief.
Have you chipped, cracked, or even knocked out a natural tooth? These are serious injuries that can have immediate consequences for your oral health and sense of wellbeing, especially if they happen right in the middle of a busy schedule. Here in Bellevue, we’ll want to address the matter with restorative services that help to rebuild the tooth’s natural structure, such as a custom-made dental crown or filling. If the natural tooth is entirely lost, we can start planning for a seamless replacement that matches your personal budget and preferences right away.
Dental Emergencies Due to Oral Care Neglect
If you are experiencing an excessive amount of pain, sensitivity, or tenderness in a specific area of the mouth, an advanced oral infection may be to blame. When “toothaches” first arise, we advise patients to try flossing and rinsing their mouth in order to rule out the possibility that a stray piece of food or other foreign debris may be causing the discomfort. However, if the pain persists or worsens, please don’t wait to contact our office for further assistance. Root canal therapy is the most likely solution for revitalizing the tooth’s health and helping it stay a stable, healthy part of your smile.
Most patients cringe when they hear the words “root canal,” but you’ll be glad to know that this procedure’s bad reputation is greatly exaggerated. The pain people associate with it is actually caused by the tooth infection it’s designed to treat, not the service itself! Dr. Preet will carefully access the tooth’s inner chamber and remove diseased pulp and bacteria with special instruments. Once the canal(s) have been thoroughly cleaned, she will fill the space with a safe substitute that’s fully biocompatible before sealing the tooth to prevent further damage. As a final touch, we will outfit the tooth with a brand-new restoration to replenish its function and shape.
Ideally, we want to help every patient enjoy their complete, confident smile for life. Unfortunately, this goal isn’t always feasible, especially when traumatic injuries have occurred. Here in Bellevue, we will prioritize your comfort throughout every stage of the extraction procedure, providing nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) as needed for a calming aid. Once the tooth or teeth are safely removed, we can start working towards the ideal replacement, whether it’s state-of-the-art dental implants or a reliable denture.
