• Thank you so much for taking such good care of my dad. He was very pleased with his visit and said how comfortable you and your staff made him. I had no doubt it would be that way, but wanted you to know. Thanks!

  • I want you to know how much I appreciate your healing skills and expertise! Without your training and dedication many of us would continue in pain. Know that you are so appreciated for using your God given gifts! Thank you so much.

    - Diane
  • I want to thank all of you who have worked with me and my dental anxiety. As you could tell I have never had a patient or understanding dentist/staff to work with me. I really appreciate all you have done.

    - Anne
  • I recently had a lot of work done on my teeth and just want to say thank you for all the wonderful care I received. I felt no pain and was very comfortable the entire time. I really enjoyed the kind and patient attitudes of everyone as well as the atmosphere. I so appreciate you fixing my messed up mouth, doing such a great job and making me feel so comfortable!

    - Molly
  • I can't thank you enough. You have given me more than a smile. Your staff are the most professional that I have ever dealt with. You have a lot to be proud of. Thank you so much!

Emergency Dentistry

Are you experiencing tooth pain?

Often tooth pain is the first sign that something is wrong with either your teeth or gums. This can be particularly traumatic if you do not currently have a dentist or it has been awhile since you have had your dental exam and cleaning.

At Scott Family Dentistry, we welcome new and existing patients to our Yankton, SD dental office for emergency dental treatment. Our goal is to restore your health and comfort as quickly as possible. Because a dental emergency can disrupt your plans, we try to treat dental emergencies on the same day.

Our Scott Family Dental team is truly compassionate and understanding. You will feel right at home while you are with us.

Common Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies arise due to a number of oral health conditions. Some of the most common ones include infection, broken teeth or restorations, tooth loss, a lost crown or filling, and deep decay.

If you experience dental pain, it will not likely resolve on its own. You should call us right away because time is important when it comes to a damaged or infected tooth.

Symptoms of a Dental Emergency

Most people notice either pain or swelling at the start of a dental emergency. It is important to seek treatment right away to treat your condition because saving your natural teeth is important to your oral health.

If you bite into something and your tooth, filling, or dental crown breaks, it can be alarming and painful! When you contact us, we can prepare you for the next steps in treatment and schedule an appointment with Dr. Jessie Scott.

Your Dental Emergency Appointment

When you call our office, we will ask you some questions about your emergency and determine if an immediate appointment is necessary.

Once you arrive in our office, we will take digital dental x-rays to assist with diagnosis of your condition. Dr. Jessie Scott will go over your conditions with you and discuss the treatment options available to restore your health.

Once we treat the immediate problem, we can discuss ongoing dental care to help you stay on track with good health and avoid dental emergencies in the future.

The best way to avoid a dental emergency is to take excellent care of your teeth at home by brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing daily. Regular dental exams and dental cleanings are great insurance for the health and comfort of your smile.

Contact Us to Schedule a Dental Appointment

We know that dental emergencies can be stressful, but we are here to help every step of the way! Give us a call and one of our helpful staff will schedule an appointment with Dr. Scott so you can feel great again!
