Dental Emergency FAQs

What causes toothaches?

A number of circumstances can lead to a toothache. Common causes of tooth pain are dental infections, cavities, and impacted wisdom teeth. When you have a painful tooth, you should have our emergency dentist take a look at it as soon as possible. If your discomfort is caused by an infection, that can be a serious health issue that should be addressed right away.

Do I need a dentist or the emergency room?

You can visit the emergency room if you have excessive bleeding in your mouth that won't stop, or if you suspect you have a broken jaw. However, if you have a dental emergency like a broken tooth or a persistent toothache, it's better to visit a dentist like Dr. Philip Latteier or Dr. Tanner Menard in Anchorage, AK.

Will insurance cover my emergency dental care?

Most dental insurance plans will cover emergency care. Our team includes experienced insurance experts who can file dental care claims on your behalf and help you take full advantage of your benefits.

Experiencing issues with a dental crown? Visit Midnight Sun Dental in Anchorage or Eagle River for relief.

Need a New Crown? We Offer Same-Day Restorations

A broken or dislodged dental crown is a common dental emergency. At Midnight Sun Dental in Anchorage, AK, Dr. Latteier can use cutting-edge CEREC® technology to design, manufacture, and place a dental crown in a single office visit.

The CEREC system is an advanced technology that analyzes a digital scan of your bite and then creates a custom-designed crown out of dental porcelain or zirconia in a matter of minutes. Thanks to CEREC, our emergency dentist can replace your damaged crown in only one appointment. At other practices, this process can require multiple office visits over several weeks.

can’t recommend this place enough! i was in throbbing tooth pain at 37 weeks pregnant and didn’t know what it was. i’m new to alaska and didn’t know which places to go to so i googled emergency dental line and called this place! they got me in same day and were extremely accommodating to me and so helpful on all levels. it ended up being my wisdom tooth and i got it pulled the same day, even with me being extremely pregnant i felt so comfortable in their hands! 100% will be going back :)

I have been going to Dr. Woodring for over 10 years. I love the care I get from his entire practice. His staff is professional, knowledagble and efficient. I would (and have) highly recommend Midnight Sun Dental Center for your family’s oral heath care. I also recently had an urgent reason to be seen and they got me in for same day service. Oh, and if you need a crown...he does it all in his office in one need for multiple appointments and a temporary crown. Current technology and expert dental care!
