When it comes to dental care, most people are not in a hurry to come in for their visits. At Smiles for Centreville, we understand that our patients would rather be somewhere else than in a dentist office, but we do our best to make our patients comfortable when they receive their routine care and treatments. The one time our patients do want to see us is when they have a dental emergency and need urgent dental care. When this occurs, we encourage you to call our office for an expedient dental appointment.
Whether your child knocked out a tooth playing football or you have a tooth that is causing you pain, we want you to call us first when you need emergency dental care. We understand you do not want to wait any longer than necessary to get your dental issue resolved. In many cases, we can see you the same day during regular office hours to care for your dental emergency. Our expert office team will adjust our schedule to make room for you or your family member as soon as possible.
Urgent Dental Care
Dental emergencies are different than other medical emergencies. While you can go to the ER or an urgent care clinic for a broken arm or back pain, tooth problems require special care. Going to the ER with a toothache or broken tooth will likely be a waste of time. They may be able to help you relieve the pain temporarily, but they do not have the equipment or expertise to fix most dental problems. Likely, you will spend a few hours waiting and will still need to schedule a dental appointment. Instead, contact our office in Centreville and we will fit you into our schedule at the next available slot for emergency dental care.
