Get The Help You Need For Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can be unpredictable, painful, and inconvenient. But at Washington Metro Dental, our team is here to help when you need it the most. We offer same-day care for patients who are experiencing dental emergencies. From dental injuries to toothaches, we can handle your case right away and ensure you get the treatment you need ASAP. Contact us online or call at 202-785-9474 to get the assistance you need today.

The Importance Of Same-Day Emergency Care

First and foremost, same-day emergency care helps ensure that you get relief from the pain and discomfort of your dental issue. A serious toothache or cracked tooth, for example, can cause excruciating pain and interfere with your day-to-day life. But with same-day emergency dental care, you can get permanent treatment and avoid further complications.

In addition to this, same-day emergency care minimizes the risk of further complications related to your condition, and helps ensure we can save your tooth. If you break a tooth, for example, you need to get treatment such as a dental crown right away. If you don't, the tooth’s condition could worsen and it could become infected, requiring further treatment like root canal therapy.

Finally, you’ll get peace of mind. You will leave our office knowing that your issue has been resolved, and that you can go back to your day-to-day life without worrying about whether or not your tooth is healthy. So call now at 202-785-9474 to get the care you need right away from Washington Metro Dental.

Understanding The Basics

What Counts As A Dental Emergency?

Some dental emergencies are more obvious than others. Dental injuries, for example, are a very common type of dental emergency. If you crack, break, loosen, or lose a tooth, this is a serious problem. A knocked-out tooth, in particular, must be replaced within 1-2 hours to save it.

However, there are a lot of other things that also count as dental emergencies. A serious, prolonged toothache that won’t go away could indicate a tooth infection, for example, and demands immediate care. Even something as minor as a piece of food lodged between your teeth that won't come out with flossing can qualify as an emergency. Over time, this could cause a serious tooth abscess (infection). 

If you’re not sure whether or not your condition counts as an emergency, just ask yourself two questions. First: “Am I in serious pain or discomfort?” Second: “Do I need a dentist’s help to fix the issue?” 

If the answer to both questions is “yes,” then don't wait. Contact Washington Metro Dental right away to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists, and get the treatment you need immediately.
