A broken tooth or a painful toothache is never fun to endure. When you have a dental emergency, you cannot wait days to get relief with dental care.
At Williamsburg Smile Design, we care about our patients and never want them to be in pain. We offer emergency dental services to ensure our patients get the care they need in a calm, compassionate environment.
While it is true that most dental appointments are scheduled weeks in advance, our dental team knows that sometimes you can’t wait that long. Dental emergencies happen, and when they do, we want our patients to call us first.
We can often find room in our schedule to see a patient the same day for an emergency. Our staff will always do their best to ensure you and your family get the treatment you need as quickly as possible.
Urgent Dental Care
The first instinct when someone has an urgent medical need is to head to the ER. However, when that medical need is a broken tooth or other dental issue, the ER is not the right place for care.
Most hospital ERs and urgent care facilities are not equipped to handle dental emergencies. You may wait hours and never receive the care you need, which is why we want you to call us first.
Common Dental Emergencies
Here are some common dental emergencies that should be handled at our office:
- A lost or broken restoration – Call us right away if an old crown or filling breaks or falls out.
- A dislodged or knocked out tooth – We have the best chance of saving your tooth the quicker we can treat it.
- Injuries to your soft tissue – If you sustain an injury to your gums, cheeks, or lips, contact our office to assess your situation.
- A broken or chipped tooth – Contact our office if your tooth is broken so we can see you as soon as possible. A chipped tooth may not require immediate attention, but call us anyway to schedule an appointment to smooth it.
- Dental pain or a toothache – If you are experiencing severe and constant pain, it could mean you have a dental infection. Contact our office right away to be seen.
At Williamsburg Smile Design, we put our patients’ comfort and health first.
Having a dental emergency can be extremely stressful. We can help by providing a calm, relaxed atmosphere to get your mind off your dental issue.
Our patients appreciate that we use DentalVibe painless injections, making it less uncomfortable to get the treatment they need. You can even watch a show on Netflix while we perform the necessary treatment to handle your dental emergency.
Next time someone in your family has an urgent dental need, contact Williamsburg Smile Design right away. We are here to help.
