Portland Emergency Dental


Having a dental emergency? You are at the right place.

Dental emergencies can happen at the most inconvenient times. But it’s important to act fast by seeking the right care.

We've been serving the Woodstock community for 30+ years. Over that time, we've treated hundreds of emergency patients. Whether it's a cracked tooth, swelling, bleeding, or multiple broken teeth, we provide quality emergency dental care services in Portland, OR, to restore your smile fast.

Why Is Emergency Dental Care Important?

Consider emergency dental care as a first-aid service for your teeth. It reduces extreme pain, prevents gum bleeding, and provides instant relief. Emergency services are essential forms of care for patients. They also increase the likelihood of saving your smile! No one wants a chipped tooth that turns into an infection that results in teeth removal. When you take care of problems early, you can prevent further issues.

Avoid long-term damage by seeking out dental urgent care in Portland. We’re more than happy to protect your teeth and gums while restoring your smile.

How To Know if Urgent Care Is Right for You

Emergency dental care deals with specific problems, typically relating to traumatic experiences. For example, accidentally knocking out your tooth is a painful and jarring experience. You need immediate intervention to reduce pain and determine a treatment option.

Non-emergency situations include crooked teeth, dull aches, cavities, tooth decay, and stained teeth. These are situations dentists can take care of during regular appointments; in other words, you don’t need immediate action to solve problems.

Urgent care is right for you if severe issues occur. Extreme toothaches, dental abscesses, chipped teeth, broken fillings, and knocked-out teeth are common emergencies.

You can also call your dentist’s office to discuss your specific issue. If they recommend urgent care, seek the right dental service.

Why should you choose our office?

  • Same day appointments, immediate help
  • Gentle, pain free approach
  • Nitrous or oral sedation available

Immediate Care From the Best Team

What Dental Emergency Are You Dealing With?

Broken tooth can be very painful and a common dental emergency.  It is probably best to come see a dentist as soon as you can. Meanwhile, rinse out your mouth with warm salt water or mouth wash, and try to avoid chewing on that side.


So your tooth is loose, but it didn't get knocked out completely. That’s good news. The dentist may be able to save your tooth. Take some over the counter painkillers, put some ice on it, and get to the dentist as soon as possible. The sooner you get to the dental office, the higher chance your tooth will be saved successfully.


Oh boy, this is not fun. Hopefully, you didn’t swallow it on accident. If you did, don’t worry you’re not going to die. Try to keep the crown or filling if you still have it and bring it with you to the dentist. Your tooth is going to be very sensitive to almost any sensation of things going into your mouth. That includes air. Avoid eating or drinking anything cold in that area. But your best bet is to get to the our Woodstock dentists as soon as the pain can get worse and infection can develop later.


Toothaches can be the symptom of a lot of different issues. There is no way to correctly self-identify what the cause is by yourself. The best thing to do is start with rinsing out your mouth with some warm salt water or mouthwash, and gently floss around the tooth to make sure no food is hanging out around there. If it persists, you’re going to need to take a trip to the dentist. An x-ray should help identify the underlying cause.


When something gets stuck between your teeth, it can become rather painful and could lead to infection. Risk of cavities or infection increases significantly after the first 72 hours. Try to get it out with some floss. If that hurts too much, you could also try something like Soft Picks for a gentler approach. If all else fails, you’re going to want to call the dentist.


Swelling indicates infection and you may have an abscessed tooth. Infection could results in extreme pain, sensitivities to cold, hot, biting. The pain could keep you up at night time and most of the time unbearable. DO NOT procrastinate on this. There’s really nothing you can do other than getting to the dentist as soon as possible.


A broken jaw can be serious. there’s nothing you can do for this other than take some over the counter painkillers and put some ice on it until you can get to the ER. You will likely need a maxillofacial surgeon for this and a surgery as soon as possible.


Pericoronitis is an inflammation of the tissue around the partially erupted wisdom teeth. It is caused by the accumulation of food or bacteria under the flap of tissue covering the tooth. It could be very painful and impossible to clean out the debris. You'll likely feel a painful pressure in your wisdom teeth area also. See an emergency dentist as soon as possible to get this resolved.

We've been serving the Woodstock community for 30+ years. Over that time, we've treated hundreds of emergency patients. Whether it be a cracked tooth, swelling, bleeding, or multiple broken teeth, we have the experience and technology to restore your smile fast.

I am very happy that I found a good local dentist. I feel comfortable here and all of the staff is very friendly. Dr. Nguyen takes the time to answer your questions and is very conscientious about your well being as she works. I would definitely recommend Woodstock Smiles to other and already have. I have some serious work to be done on my teeth and will continue to get it done here.

If you are looking for comfort and gentle dentist with a friendly crew, you have found it here. I had my bridge taken apart and prepared for an implant. So far the first procedure of extracting one of my tooth went so well, I felt all better in the next day and can’t wait to go back in and see Dr. Nguyen and her crew again!..
…. No wonder she got all 5 stars…😁

They have been very kind to me and to my financial situation. The program they have that helps people who don’t have insurance has made a big difference for me. I got a thorough check up on my first appointment and we scheduled the next one right after. Definitely gonna make this my go-to dental office

I have been going here for 6 months after a bad experience with another dental clinic. They did such a great job treating me quickly and getting up to speed on my medical record.

I understood the billing options and appreciate friendly energy from all the staff members. I usually hate going to the dentist but that has chaged since going here!

First dentist I’ve felt comfortable with since I moved to Portland 7 years ago. I got heavy duty work done here and can’t be happier with the results of my new front tooth and the extraction they did. Highly recommend especially as an uninsured patient, their wellness plan is worth it especially if you need to get a lot of procedures done!

My experience at Woodstock smiles was extremely positive. The staff is friendly and professional. They went out of the way to accommodate my schedule and to make sure that my needs were served. The hygienist and the dentist we're both thorough and clear about the care I was receiving and future care that I might need. I highly recommend them.

The only dentist I'd go to—I went to Dr. Otteson (the former owner) for years and years for his friendly, knowledgeable care, and Dr. Nguyen, having taken over the practice, has continued the tradition. The rest of the staff is also extremely pleasant to work with, even when I'm needing to try to find an opening due to having to reschedule.

Excellent people & service. Needed an emergency extraction. Emailed their office at 3am. I was in the chair at 11am. The only reason the extraction hit a hiccup is because I always need about three times the normal amount of novocaine. Other than that my tooth was out in under five minutes. The cost was incredibly reasonable for emergency service. Great experience. Who in the hell says that about a visit to the dentist?! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I came in to see Dr. Nguyen as a new patient for a long overdue checkup and cleaning. Dr. Nguyen and her team were very thorough and considerate. We discovered an infection and got scheduled right away for a root canal—my biggest fear about going back to a dentist. But honestly, the procedure was quick and painless. Dr. Nguyen checked on me throughout the process and made certain I wasn’t experiencing pain. I expected to feel awful when the numbing wore off, but all I felt was maybe a very subtle discomfort. Thank you, Dr. Nguyen and team, for your compassion and thorough process of care.

The environment is pleasant, and they do a very good job in making sure you are comfortable and at ease since many can experience anxiety getting their dental work. Dr. Nguyen is warm, professional, and always tries her best to attend to our needs. If you are looking for a place, I would highly recommend you get your dental work with Dr. Nguyen and her team at Woodstock Smiles.

They always get me in ASAP. They are flexible and he’ll work around your schedule. Every time I have been inside they are extremely friendly and care about you. They answer any questions and help ease your mind. As someone who used to be terrified of dentists, I enjoy going to this place and getting work done. All the work they have done has been great! I recently have gone while pregnant and they were extremely gentle and made sure I was comfortable during my visit.

Today was my first visit to Woodstock Smiles. The service I received from everyone was welcoming and professional. Dr. Nguyen went over my x-rays with me, explaining various treatment options while emphasizing that it was my decision on how to proceed. I appreciated the ladies at the front desk working patiently with my insurance company. I look forward to having my dental work done here at Woodstock Smiles.

I have always been afraid of going to the dentist since I was young and skipped many years of dental care but finally managed to get myself to a dentist.

Doctor Nguyen is very good she explained everything to me. She made me feel calm about the process. I had one of my molar removed as it was causing me pain when I eat. I am glad I went since I am pain free. Definitely I would recommend it to anybody who wants quality dental services.

All around excellent experience and reasonable cost. I had no insurance and purchased their annual savings plan. Nhu is a real pro and pleasant to be around. Same can be said for her staff and the front desk.

I’ve always been anxious with dentists and dentistry in general. Dr Nguyen and team made the appointment so comfortable and even when I could not seem to get numbed during a tooth extraction, they took their time and made sure I was comfortable during the experience. Having any dentist always asking “how you doing?”, “everything ok?” Is so helpful and helped ease the anxiety. I had 2 teeth pulled that day!!!! Thanks Dr. Nguyen and team!
