What counts as a dental emergency?
Dental emergencies may look like a fractured tooth, ongoing bleeding in the gums, or anything else that requires urgent dental care care to relieve severe pain, restore a tooth, or stop bleeding in the mouth. Accidents are the main culprit when it comes to why dental emergencies happen.
What are the most common emergency dental cases?
- Extruding tooth
- Loose crown
- Fractured tooth
- Infection or abscess in the mouth or gums
- Knocked-out or dislodged tooth
- Objects caught between teeth
- Swelling or bleeding in the gums

Treatment recommendations you can trust
Dr. Shumway believes that patients are the best judge of whether or not they should move forward with treatment. We’ll always put the decision in your hands, supporting you and explaining expected outcomes, costs, and all other details so you can make the best choice for you and your family.
Dr. Shumway is the best dentist I have been to in my 67 year old life. I feel very comfortable being in his care and I am deathly afraid of dentists.
This was an outstanding experience and I could not have left happier. Excellent service. Would recommend them to friends, family, and anyone looking for a dentist.
These guys are awesome! They took good care of me and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. I will be coming back!
Dr. Shumway and his staff are fantastic! They really go the extra mile to make sure you are getting all your dental needs and to make sure you are comfortable.
More knowledgeable, helpful, and honest than any other dentist I’ve been to. I will be recommending Dr. Shumway at Spokane Family Smiles to anyone who asks.
I cracked an old filling and it was loose. Dr Shumway was able to get me in at the beginning of the next week. Employees are always friendly and helpful. I highly recommend them.
Very grateful to have Dr. Shumway as my dentist. Friendly staff and a great experience every time.
Spokane Family Smiles is an excellent dental experience! The staff is so friendly and always remembers my name and family. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!
You know you are part of the family from the first appointment. Dr. Shumway and his staff will continue to be the place for me and my family for the foreseeable future.

By far the best dentist I have experienced. He makes sure you’re always comfortable and explains what he is doing every step of the way.
The whole staff is very nice. Dr. Shumway always makes sure you’re comfortable and is really good at explaining what he is doing.
Absolutely one of the best dentist offices I have been to. The appointment went smoothly and I was kept well informed of what was going on and if there were any issues.
Always a pleasure to visit. Very friendly, warm, and inviting. Very pleased with the dentist and the staff there. They keep me in tip top shape when it comes to my teeth.
I contacted Dr. Shumway on a Saturday and he returned my call personally. He offered to see me in one hour even though his offices were closed. This is ‘above and beyond’ patient care.

Common wisdom tooth removal questions
What causes dental emergencies?
Accidents are the cause of most dental emergencies, such as falls or sports injuries. Tooth decay, loose fillings, and other types of dental injuries are also common triggers, and may require emergency dentistry.
How long do I have to wait for an emergency dental appointment?
If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms we’ve mentioned above, it’s time to seek emergency dental assistance. If left untreated, the dental injuries may become worse. Because of this, we take dental emergencies seriously, and make sure that we can take care of you on the same day you give us a call.
How much does an emergency dental appointment cost?
Every dental emergency is unique. Once you arrive, our emergency dentists will diagnose you to determine which procedures are needed. Cost factors include:
- The dental repair needed
- Materials used in the procedure
- Whether you need after-hours or weekend dentistry
- Whether sedation dentistry is needed
