How do I know if I have a dental emergency?

We know how upsetting any dental emergency can be, and we want you to get the treatment and relief you need as soon as possible. If you’re not sure you need to be seen on an emergency basis, in Great Bridge, Chesapeake, VA, call our office first at (757) 548-3238.

Our team is trained to listen to your concerns and help determine how soon we need to see you. If you have a severe toothache, we will see you the same day. If your dental emergency is less critical, we'll coordinate an appointment that works for both of our schedules.

In many cases, dental emergencies are obvious; you have a terrible toothache, you broke off a piece of your tooth, or you suffered dental trauma during a soccer game. But we know from experience that dental emergencies come in all shapes and sizes, and we don’t want you to spend an extra moment worrying.

Some of the common dental emergencies we treat are:

  • Toothaches
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Lost dental crowns or fillings
  • Gum infections
  • Dental trauma

We always welcome your calls, and we would rather spend a few minutes chatting with you than have you suffer needlessly.  Please call our office at (757) 548-3238 so we can help you get the treatment you need.
