Is This Really a Dental Emergency?

Sometimes dental emergencies are obvious but other times they’re not. You should seek emergency dental care if you meet any of these criteria:

  • You're unable to eat
  • You can't go to school or work
  • The issue is too embarrassing to go about your normal activities
  • You are in severe pain
  • The tooth has been knocked out or broken

Although dental emergencies are frequently caused by traumatic injuries or broken dental work, they can also be due to untreated disease. We recommend treating dental issues while they are small, with conservative restorations, to reduce your chances of a future emergency or toothache.

Emergency Dental Treatment

We want to relieve your pain as soon as possible. Once you’re comfortable, we can discuss the best treatment options for your circumstances. For serious dental emergencies, our Reston dentist might recommend:

Root Canal Therapy
Dental Extraction
Chipped and Broken Teeth

What to Do if You’re in Pain

We recommend you rinse with warm salt water and take Motrin (ibuprofen) to ease symptoms before your appointment. Avoid chewing on that side of your mouth. You can also apply a cold compress to that side of your face to ease swelling and discomfort.
