What is emergency dentistry?

At Stone Ridge Family Dentistry, we understand that not all dental issues arise during normal business hours. Dental emergencies can happen anytime, and our team is here to help. Emergency dentistry is an area of dental care that focuses on treating urgent oral health problems that require immediate attention. Our Aldie and South Riding, Virginia, area practice is equipped to help individuals when these issues arise, providing same-day care in many situations.

What are some common emergency dental care situations?

Several situations can occur in which immediate care may be needed. These include:

  • Oral injuries and dental trauma
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Severe tooth pain (toothache)
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Severe cuts or bleeding of the gum tissues

What should I do if I experience a dental emergency?

The first step is to stay calm. Then, it is always a good idea to connect with an emergency dentist as soon as possible. Over the phone, they can advise you on the next steps you need to take and recommend what you should do to alleviate the problem and when to come into the office for care.

What treatment do I need for my condition?

Emergency dentistry treatments usually involve relieving pain and repairing damaged teeth or soft tissue. Common emergency treatments include:

  • Extractions
  • Root canals
  • Tooth fillings
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Denture repairs
  • Oral surgery
  • Gum disease treatment
  • Trauma injury treatment, such as facial fractures or jaw injuries
