Tooth pain can arise from decay, infection, injury or other causes. If your toothache has lasted more than a day or two or is accompanied by a fever or earache, then a prompt visit to the dentist is needed. If in doubt, call our office. Our on-call dentist can advise you.


When you get an infection in your tooth or gum, an abscess  can form, preventing the infection from draining properly. Abscesses are often very painful, causing those experiencing discomfort to seek immediate treatment. If you notice swelling, pus or a strange taste in your mouth, it is important to contact your dentist right away.

Lost or Broken Filling

A lost filling does not always constitute an emergency, but can be quite sensitive and uncomfortable. Always call the dentist as soon as possible after you lose or break a filling as your tooth is susceptible to further damage.

Cracked or Broken Tooth

When a tooth fractures or cracks, it is often an indication that damage has occurred inside the tooth as well as outside. Rinse your mouth gently but thoroughly with warm water to cleanse the area, call the dentist immediately, and apply cold to reduce the swelling if any occurs.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal becomes necessary when the tooth pulp becomes infected. Treatment is not always an emergency, but it can become one when the infection has progressed unchecked.

Tooth Extractions

Sometimes, a tooth cannot be saved, and extraction is the best way to preserve the health of surrounding teeth. Whenever an extraction is necessary, we ensure your experience is as pain free as possible.

I’ve been going to Dr. Gleichman at Dental Associates for over 15 years now. He and the rest of the staff are very knowledgeable and up to date on new techniques. They are very good at explaining everything in terms anyone can understand they are all very polite and caring. I’d recommend highly.


I've been going to Dental Associates for decades. Love my hygienist. She is so skilled at cleaning my teeth. My dentist is thorough and friendly. Great place to go to take care of your dental needs.

Bud Price

We moved to Des Moines last year and our son recommended Dr. Quick. We are so glad he did? At 73, I needed extensive work. The procedures were painless, and the costs more than fair. We love the staff, especially Dr. Quick 😁

Michelle Huenecke

Always a great experience, I have been going here for 10 plus years and my experience with the whole staff has always been extraordinary! Great place for your dental health.

Nikki did a 10 out of 10 as always. I make a point to share with her that she is good at what she does and makes me feel comfortable as a patient.

Beth Damm

I look forward to my visits at Dental Associates. Friendly, professional and personal service. They take all of the extra precautions to keep their staff and patients safe and well.

David McVicker

I called for an emergency appt this morning due to a broken tooth and was gotten in promptly. Professional and friendly dental care as always. I really like this team. I would add that masks are required and the patient is responsible for bringing their own which is how it should be in my opinion.

Judy Prunty

I had a very good checkup with Dr. Quick. His hygienist was very good and gentle. Dr. Quick was very thorough as always. Great dentist!
