Shenandoah Family Dentistry: Emergency Dental Services
Shenandoah Family Dentistry offers emergency dental care in Winchester, VA.
What To Do In the Event of a Dental Emergency
Whether you have severe pain in your mouth or jaw, a painful tooth infection, broken teeth, or need emergency dental care for other urgent dental problems, you should contact a local dentist immediately. Dental emergencies can be scary, but your local emergency dentist can care for your needs with a same-day appointment.
Shenandoah Family Dental offers urgent dental care services in Winchester during regular office hours. We can help you quickly if you are experiencing pain from a damaged tooth.
We will do our best to help you receive treatment the same day you call and advise you on relieving tooth pain or bleeding from a broken tooth or cracked tooth while you are still at home. For example, we may recommend using warm water to clean visible debris and blood from the area or a cold compress to help relieve pain.
Sometimes a dental emergency needs urgent attention but doesn’t necessarily require you to visit a dental emergency room right away. For example, in the case of a chipped tooth or mild toothache, our team will do our best to consider your dental pain and dental care needs and provide a timely appointment as soon as possible.
Remember, emergency dentists are not the same as a hospital emergency room. If you have unbearable pain or excessive bleeding that will not stop, you should visit your local emergency room.

Preventing Dental Emergencies
One of the best ways to prevent dental emergencies is by having a routine dental appointment with your regular dentist every six months.
If you have recently had restorative or cosmetic dental work, be sure to pay close attention to how your mouth is healing. If you notice pain or unusual sensitivity after a procedure, seek treatment from your dentist’s office before it becomes an emergency.
If you play contact sports, wearing a mouthguard is another way to help prevent a dental emergency.
