Dental emergencies can occur at any place and at any time. These problems are usually very painful, such as a throbbing toothache or extensive pressure on teeth that is just too difficult to endure. When these emergencies happen, you need to know where to find the emergency treatment you need to soothe the symptoms, reduce the risk of complications, and protect your dental health.

How can you locate local emergency dental services?

Are you wondering, “Where can I find emergency dental care near me?” Look no further than our practice. You no longer need to worry when a sudden dental problem strikes because our emergency dentists in (GEOID) provide urgent dental care during regular business hours. Simply call our office during our daily office hours to make a convenient appointment with one of our dentists. Be assured that our knowledgeable emergency dentists will see you as quickly as possible to diagnose your problem, relieve your pain promptly, and evaluate whether additional treatment is required to keep the problem under control. If you need emergency treatment outside of our regular business hours or experience severe bleeding, a jaw injury, or serious dental trauma, immediately call 911 or go to the hospital nearest you.

What is considered emergency dental care?

This type of dental care is comprised of the services required to soothe severe tooth pain, repair dental damage, replace lost dental crowns and fillings, or treat other general dental conditions that could lead to long-term damage without immediate treatment. Our regular dentist treats all emergency cases during our office hours. If treatment is needed after hours or for extremely serious conditions like nonstop bleeding, jaw injuries, or major dental trauma, please call 911 or visit your nearest hospital for treatment.

In addition to treating a wide range of general emergency issues and providing any temporary dental restorations required, our dental experts offer the following emergency services:

  • Tooth and oral pain treatment for problems resulting from tooth decay or injury
  • Treatment of tooth infections
  • Emergency repair for cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Emergency extraction of teeth
  • Restoration of loosened or missing dental crowns and fillings
  • Relief of minor swelling and pain from wisdom teeth
  • Orthodontic pain and problems due to broken brackets and jumbled wires

When should you seek emergency dental care?

When should emergency dentists be contacted? One of the most commonly asked questions is, “When should I call an emergency dental office near me?” Many people simply don’t know if a problem requires emergency dental care. Generally, you may need to visit an emergency dental office to treat any of the following dental symptoms or conditions. But remember that our office provides treatment for these general emergency symptoms only during our regular business hours. An after-hours dental emergency involving substantial bleeding, severe gum or facial swelling, or injuries to the jaw, mouth, face, or head will require that you call 911 or head to your closest hospital.

A Fractured or Broken Tooth

You must have a fractured or broken tooth treated as soon as possible to prevent structural damage and any infection. If the edge of your tooth is sharp or jagged, make sure to cover it with dental wax to ensure that you don’t accidentally hurt your tongue or inner cheek. And call our office to arrange for the earliest appointment possible.

A Knocked-Out Tooth

Our dentists are able to replace a knocked-out tooth to provide prompt relief. If this happens to you, gather all of the tooth fragments, rinse them with warm water, and then try to place the tooth back into its socket. Make sure to only touch the crown of the tooth and call our office for assistance.

Tooth Pain or Pressure

Never ignore tooth pain or pressure, especially if you also experience fever, an earache, or other uncomfortable symptoms.

Sensitive Teeth

While only occasionally sensitive teeth don’t demand immediate treatment, severe or ongoing cases may be caused by an infection or fracture. These serious cases will require a call to our office for treatment.

A Cavity

Caused by dental decay, a cavity can lead to major tooth pain. But our emergency dental experts can provide the necessary treatment to relieve the pain and repair the decayed tooth.

An Abscessed Tooth

A tooth that has become infected due to trauma, decay, or gum disease is known as an abscessed tooth. It can cause major pain, swelling, sensitivity, swollen glands, bad breath, and fever. Treatment is necessary to resolve the problem, so call our office if you experience an abscessed tooth.

Loose or Missing Tooth Fillings

If you have loose or missing tooth fillings, you may suffer from greater tooth pain, sensitivity, tooth decay, and dental damage. Make sure to call our practice for treatment as soon as you notice loose or missing tooth fillings.

Lost Restorations and Broken Crowns

Did you know that lost restorations and broken crowns can make teeth more prone to damage? But our expert dentists can resolve the problem and protect and restore the affected tooth.

Orthodontic Pain, Pressure, or Injury

No need to suffer with orthodontic pain, pressure, or injury, because our dentists can resolve your problem and fix your braces to avoid additional discomfort.

Eroded Tooth Enamel Due to Teeth Grinding

Grinding your teeth is a common problem called bruxism and it can cause major dental damage. One of the biggest problems is eroded teeth enamel due to tooth grinding. But luckily, our emergency dental experts can help protect your delicate tooth enamel by providing you with a night guard.

Serious Sinus Pressure

Many times, there is a relationship between serious sinus pressure and tooth pain. If you suffer from both symptoms simultaneously, they probably are connected, so you need to see a dentist to find out if there are any underlying dental causes like an impacted wisdom tooth or possible infection.

Please call our office if you experience any of these painful conditions.

How should an extremely serious dental emergency be handled?

When is the right time to contact emergency dentists versus calling 911? One of the most common questions patients ask about emergency dental care is, “When should I visit an emergency dental office near me and when should I call 911?” According to dental experts, certain conditions demand more highly specialized or immediate treatment than emergency dentists in Alexandria can deliver.

If you need basic emergency care during our regular practice hours, please call our office right away. But if you need emergency care outside of our regular hours, you will need to call 911 or go to the hospital nearest you. And if you experience any of these extremely serious problems, you must call 911, contact your physician, or visit the closest hospital emergency room immediately:

  • Uncontrollable facial bleeding
  • Extensive swelling of your gums, mouth, or face
  • Sudden injuries to the teeth, jaw, face, or head

How much does a visit to an emergency dental office cost?

Are you worrying and asking, “What is the cost of emergency dental care near me?” The truth is that the price is different for every patient because the total cost of your treatment will be determined by a number of different factors, such as the kinds of treatments required to resolve your dental emergency. Some advanced treatments provided by emergency dentists will cost more than basic care. And some people have dental insurance coverage to help cover those costs. Our emergency dentists accept most major dental insurance plans. If you don’t have dental insurance, be assured that our emergency dentists can still make costs more manageable by providing a variety of flexible payment options, accepting most major credit cards.

What if emergency dental services are needed after hours or over the weekend?

It’s important to keep in mind that our emergency dentists are only available for treatment during regular office hours, rather than for 24-hour dental emergency care. If you need urgent dental care outside of our business hours, you will need to call 911 or seek treatment at the closest hospital. And if you experience severe bleeding, major gum or facial swelling, or injuries to the face, jaw, mouth, or head, call 911 or head to your closest hospital. You never know how serious an emergency can be, so it’s better to take every precaution and seek immediate treatment than to wait and risk major complications. But when an emergency strikes during our office hours, please call our emergency dentists in Alexandria to relieve your pain and problems.
