If you are experiencing a dental emergency, call our office now at 480-759-2020 and we will get you in as soon as possible to relieve your pain!
We see almost all emergency appointments the same day in our office. Dr. Anastassatos does not want you to have to experience dental pain and risk harm to your smile or oral health. We understand that dental emergencies are scary, and you may be unsure of what to do in this situation. Healthy Smiles is always available to see you and get you out of the discomfort you are in.
If you have an emergency after hours, don’t worry – call our office. You will be directed to a personal staff message that includes the dentist’s cell phone number. If Dr. Anastassatos cannot fix the issue immediately, he can at least address your pain and provide professional advice to help until you see him the next day.
Common Emergencies in Our Office
What is a dental emergency? If you are afraid to call us because you think your dental pain is not severe enough or even if you are embarrassed about the condition of your mouth, never hesitate. We see a variety of dental emergencies in our office on a regular basis, and we accommodate all types of emergencies. Some of the most common ones we see include:

What to Do in an Emergency
If you are experiencing an emergency, the first thing you need to do is call our office and schedule your same-day appointment. If you are experiencing pain, we recommend that you take an over-the-counter medication such as Tylenol or ibuprofen to help ease the pain and swelling.
If your tooth is loose, fractured, or broken, avoid touching the tooth in question as this can cause more damage to the area and increase the amount of pain you feel.
If your tooth has been knocked out, you need to recover it quickly to ensure that the roots do not die. You should place the tooth back into the socket it came out of, or you can place it in a container and cover it with milk. We may be able to place your tooth back in permanently if you contact us right away for dental emergency services!
