A tooth can cause pain for a variety of reasons. Mild pain could be from a cavity, braces, or taking a bite of an apple too hard. If you find you have unbearable pain in your mouth, the sooner you see a dentist could save your tooth from infection or an extraction. Infections in the mouth can affect your whole body, causing swollen face and cheeks, fever, and swollen lymph nodes. Infected teeth can also be cause for root canal treatment.
Broken, Cracked, or Chipped tooth/teeth
Mishaps and accidents happen, especially with the daily use and force we put on our teeth. If your teeth breaks its in any way, or damage has extended to the root, in can be painful. Attempting to eat could cause more pain and damage. Dental bonding, veneers, or crowns that break need to mended right away so they do not continue to break off. At our office in Northern VA, we offer the latest in technology to give you a seamless restored smile. We use ITERO Digital Impression System to get more accurate and mess free impressions used for common procedures including crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, bridges, and implants.

Permanent Tooth Knocked Out
Every year, countless students playing sports get a tooth knocked out. However you lost your tooth, the sooner a emergency dentist can attempt to replace the tooth the better chance you will have at success at keeping your original tooth. There are situations, though, where the tooth is lost (or thrown out!). In this case, we can provide a tooth implant. Again, the sooner the better to avoid the other teeth from moving out of place.
