Common Problems, Real Assistance

Please take a look at our help guide for dental emergencies.

Are you suffering from a...
  • Broken Tooth

    Try a save any pieces of the tooth that have broken away. Rinse them in warm water, place in a clean container, and cover with them in milk, water, and some salt.

    Rinse the injured person’s mouth with warm water and attempt to stop any bleeding. Apply a clean gauze or cloth to the area and apply pressure. If the bleeding doesn’t stop after 10 minutes then call our dental team or go to the hospital.

  • Knocked Out Tooth

    When a tooth is knocked out, you need to act fast – call us asap!

    Only hold the tooth by the crown – do not touch the root.

    Rinse the injured person’s mouth with warm water and attempt to stop any bleeding. Apply a clean gauze to the area and apply pressure. If the bleeding doesn’t stop after 10 minutes then call our dental team or go to the hospital.

    Where possible, attempt to replace the tooth into the gum socket. Do not be too firm but gently place some pressure.

    If you can’t replace it, then rinse the tooth in warm water, place in a small container, and cover with milk, water, and some salt.

  • Lost Crown or Filling

    When you lose a crown or a filling, it is extremely rare that we need to see you the same day. Please schedule an appointment with us. Prior to your visit, here is what you need to do:

    Fillings: If you find the filling, place in a clean container and bring it with you to your appointment.

    Crowns: If you find the crown, give it a good clean and line the inside with toothpaste or dental adhesive. You can then attempt to replace it or keep safe in a container.

  • Toothache

    If you are suffering from a severe toothache then inspect the tooth and clean the area. Use floss to remove any debris and check the gum line too. If the pain persists then please call our Seattle dentist at (253) 863-2995.

I'll be the first to admit.... I hate going to the dentist. But Dr. Crane and his staff are phenomenal!!!!! Melissa was the best dental assistant, she made sure I felt comfortable and at ease. My teeth are in horrible condition and they gave me hope and did not make me feel judged like other places have in the past.

If your looking for a GREAT dentist who is personable, honest, and professional you need to look no further. I highly recommend Dr. Crane and his staff at Dental Care of Sumner.

Dr. Scott Crane is wonderful and very knowledgeable. His hygienists are really good too. They have digital x-rays, and up to date equipment . The staff in the front office are pleasant, and do a great job with billing and the likes. I like going there, I highly recommend them.

I am fearful about going to the dentist. I put off the visit as long as I could, then Dr. Crane and Dental Care of Sumner were recommended to me. The first visit I was extremely nervous, however, the office staff, Hygienists and Dr. Crane, are all kind, professional and friendly. Everyone in the practice does what they can do to make the patient comfortable, informed and at ease. I highly recommend this office and Dr. Crane to anyone fearful of going to a dentist. Clean, friendly, kind and on time for appointments.
