Emergency Dentist Treating Arlington, VA
You rarely see an emergency coming. That’s just as true of dental emergencies as it for any other kind. Dr. Sadeddin is committed to being there for patients during dental emergencies. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to give our Arlington, VA dental practice a call. We do everything we can to provide same-day service to patients of record.
If you’ve just lost one of your permanent teeth, your first step should be to give Westover Dentistry a call. After we’ve set aside time for you to come in, rinse your tooth and try to put it back in its socket. If you’re unable to do this, preserve the tooth in a container of milk. If we can, we reattach your tooth. If we’re unable to do this, we can talk to you about replacing it with a bridge or an implant-supported prosthetic.
If you have a fractured tooth, rinse your mouth (after notifying us, of course) and apply a cold compress to the area. The compress helps prevent swelling. When you arrive, we’ll assess your tooth to determine your needs. We may recommend an all-ceramic crown to help restore your tooth’s strength and beauty.
Toothaches don’t have a single cause. You may have something lodged around your tooth, you may have a cavity, or your tooth may have developed an infection. Before giving us a call, we recommend flossing around your tooth to see if anything can be dislodged. If this doesn’t ease your pain, give us a call, and we’ll schedule a time for you to come in and see Dr. Sadeddin. We offer a range of solutions for patients who are struggling with a toothache.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
As strange as it may sound, there are some teeth our jaws don't have room for. This happens most often with third molars, more commonly called “wisdom teeth.” In most cases, they don’t start erupting until between the ages of 17 and 25. Because our modern jaw doesn’t have room for them, they need to be extracted before they develop. Complications like crowding or impaction arise if wisdom teeth aren’t removed. This is not only painful, but can seriously impact oral health. At Westover Dentistry, Dr. Sadeddin offers wisdom tooth extractions to Arlington-area patients to preserve oral health.
