Emergency Appointments Available

Unfortunately, dental emergencies arise when you least expect them to. They rarely occur when you have nothing going on. Instead, they pop up when you’re about to go to work, have plans with a friend, or are in the middle of an important work meeting.

Our emergency dental team is here to answer your phone call any time you face a dental emergency. This holds true if it’s on the weekends or at night. If you have an urgent dental emergency, we’ll make sure you visit our office right away.

Some examples of the most common dental emergencies include excessive bleeding, a knocked out or loose tooth, an injured jaw, painful swelling, swollen cheeks, or extreme face sensitivity.

Fortunately, many dental emergencies are non-urgent, meaning they don’t require immediate care from a dentist. Broken or cracked teeth, dull toothaches, small chips, mild tooth sensitivity, and food lodged between teeth are all examples of non-urgent dental emergencies. In the event you have a non-urgent dental emergency, we’ll give you instructions on what to do until it’s time for your appointment.

Schedule an Emergency Dental Appointment at River Run Dental

The next time you or a loved one experiences a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to call our emergency dental team at 804-409-0387 to request an appointment. We look forward to easing your discomfort and getting your mouth, teeth, and gums back to normal.

Are you in extreme tooth pain? Have you had an accident that has caused trauma to your mouth? Do you think you may have an abscessed tooth? These scenarios qualify as “dental emergencies.”

In the event you believe you are suffering from a dental emergency, do not hesitate to contact a dentist immediately! If the emergency occurs after the normal office hours and you are having excruciating pain or bleeding, you should head to the emergency room for care. However, if it is during normal office hours that you are in need of an emergency appointment, our office provides emergency visits to you in the Short Pump, VA area. Please give our office a call immediately so that we may schedule you for your emergency appointment.

At our office, we believe that it is much better to be safe than sorry! If you are questioning how urgent your case may be it would be in your best interest that you get in touch with us and we will happily provide the appropriate information to guide you in the right direction! If you are a new patient, we will have you fill out new patient forms so that we can have you seen as soon as possible.

In some scenarios, you may be experiencing what would qualify as a “non-urgent dental emergency.” These are dental emergencies but may not require immediate attention, but this doesn’t mean to put off an appointment with the dentist!

For examples of non-urgent dental emergencies, see below:

  • Lost filling or crown
  • Broken or Cracked Tooth (unless the tooth is causing you severe pain)
  • Broken or Damaged Retainer or Night Guard
  • Food lodged between teeth
  • Dull toothache
  • Small Chip in Tooth
  • Mild tooth sensitivity

Now, we understand that sometimes losing a filling, crown, or chipped tooth can happen when life is busy! For example, you may have lost a tooth right before a wedding or before a large vacation. Do not put an evaluation appointment off! In the event that you have a special occasion and something goes wrong with a tooth, we will try our best to have you scheduled as soon as possible!
