I’m having a dental emergency. What should I do?

Woman with Toothache in Dentist's Chair | Emergency Dentist in Vienna Any time you think you have a dental emergency, please contact our Vienna dental office first. There are often steps you can take to improve the chance of protecting a tooth from further damage or even loss.

In many cases, there is no question that you need emergency treatment as soon as possible. This includes situations where you have a tooth knocked out or severe pain. A tooth that has been knocked can often be reinserted in the socket if you see us within an hour or two of the accident.

Severe pain indicates a serious problem and also needs to be dealt with quickly. For instance, this type of pain can indicate an abscess. Without immediate treatment, the abscess will cause an infection that threatens your overall health.

It’s important to note, however, that in some cases you should go directly to the emergency room or call 911. An accident that causes trauma to your face or head should be handled by a doctor in a hospital setting.
