Emergency Dentist in Vienna, VA
Emergencies of any variety are stressful and potentially painful, but in the case of most medical emergencies, patients know who to call or where to go for care. In the past, dental practitioners have not offered their patients the same courtesy, but at the dental practice of Gary Ellenbogen, DDS, we’re happy to offer same day emergency appointments whenever possible and our team is happy to offer patients first aid tips to protect their smiles between appointments.
Our team takes the patient’s word for it when he or she calls in with a dental emergency, but for those who aren’t sure whether they’re experiencing an emergency, take a few moments to review our list of commonly treated dental emergencies below:
- Avulsed (knocked out) teeth
- Chipped, cracked, broken, or fractured teeth
- Avulsed, chipped, cracked, broken, or fractured dental restorations
- Severe toothache
- Soft tissue laceration
- Infected tooth or gums
If you’ve experienced severe facial trauma, potentially broken jawbone, or soft tissue lacerations that continue bleeding after one or more hours, we recommend you proceed to your nearest emergency room. Dr. Ellenbogen will be happy to help you restore any damaged dental structures in partnership with medical professionals who will protect your overall health.
