What would be considered a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is any dental problem that requires immediate treatment, for example, to stop bleeding, save a tooth, or control a severe infection. 1
Dental emergencies that involve pain, bleeding, or injuries should be assessed and treated by a dental practitioner. However, many people end up going to the ER at their nearest hospital because they don’t have access to specialized emergency dental care in Alaska.
Note: You should call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room right away if you have suffered severe facial injuries such as fractures or have bleeding that won’t stop.
Knowing how to recognize a dental emergency is important so that you can seek urgent dental care from an Alaska dentist near you.
Some of the signs and symptoms of a dental problem that requires urgent dental care from a dentist in Alaska include:
- Bleeding in the mouth that cannot be controlled
- Severe tooth or mouth pain that does not improve with over-the-counter pain pills
- A severely chipped or broken tooth
- An avulsed tooth (a tooth that has been completely knocked-out of your mouth)
- Dental appliances such as braces poking your gum or cheek
- Gum bleeding or swelling
- Trouble opening or closing your jaw

How long can a tooth infection go untreated?
If left untreated, a tooth infection can spread to surrounding tissues over a period of weeks to months, forming a tooth abscess. Once this occurs, it can lead to death of the tissues involved and permanent damage. Several factors such as older age, poor immunity, and medical conditions like diabetes can increase the risk of complications associated with an untreated dental infection.
That’s why it’s important that you don’t put off dental treatment. We understand that life can get busy and it can be difficult to keep up with routine dental care. However, going to the dentist regularly is extremely important to prevent problems in the future. It is worth remembering that untreated tooth infections can not only lead to serious health problems but also cost you hundreds of dollars in dental treatments in the future.

Do dental insurance plans cover emergency dental care in Alaska?
Your coverage for a dental emergency will depend on the type of dental insurance plan you have. Some dental plans in Alaska may require you to pay partially out-of-pocket for emergency dental care. Many Alaska dentists accept private insurance but are not contracted with state Medicaid or Medicare programs.
If you’re not sure whether urgent dental care is covered by your plan, please get in touch with Express Dentist on 1-844-593-0591. We will work with leading emergency dental clinics in your area and your insurance company to find out your copay and out-of-pocket cost for any recommended dental procedures.
