Whatever your dental emergency, Braddock Family Dental offers same-day tooth care!
Whatever dental emergency you are experiencing, we can get you in to our Fairfax dental office the same day or within 24 hours. Dr. Cho and our team reserve a block of time every day for emergency appointments, giving us time to prescribe the right medications, take diagnostic X-rays and imaging, and do the right treatments to get you out of pain and back to your life.
Types of Emergencies
The most common emergencies we see at Braddock Family Dental include broken teeth/lost fillings, knocked out teeth, severe tooth pain, and swelling.
Broken Teeth or Lost Filling
If the broken tooth or lost filling is small size, we can fix them by doing fillings. If they are large size, for example more than half the size of the tooth, we prefer crowns to restore the tooth. In case of mildly knocked out tooth, we can try to re-stabilize the tooth by splinting for a few weeks.
In case of severely knocked out tooth, we do same-day tooth care. We extract the tooth, and place an implant and crown so that you can start chewing on that tooth immediately!
In case of severe pain and/or swelling, root canal treatment, extraction, or gum treatment may be the answer.
If you experience a dental emergency, be sure to call Braddock Family Dental as soon as possible for same-day tooth care. If you need immediate attention after hours, call our emergency phone number and our on-call staff member will help you. If you are unable to reach our office during an emergency, dial 911.
