Emergency Dental Care

At Roanoke Dental Center, we understand that dental emergencies can be stressful and concerning. Our experienced and knowledgeable dentists are available to assist you with any dental emergency you may encounter. We offer same-day emergency services for most conditions and make every effort to schedule an appointment with one of our dentists as soon as possible.

It is essential to note that some dental emergencies may not cause immediate pain, but they can lead to severe complications if left untreated. We suggest seeking immediate attention for the following conditions, whether or not you are experiencing pain:

  • Broken, cracked, or chipped teeth

  • Missing crown

  • Significant sensitivity

  • Intense toothache

  • Infection

  • Swollen or tender gums

  • Jaw pain


If you encounter a dental emergency after our regular business hours and have been seen by one of our dentists before, please call our emergency number at Roanoke Dental Center Phone Number (insert phone number). We are available to assist you with any severe dental emergencies such as significant infection, pain, or trauma.

In the event that you have a knocked-out tooth, time is of the essence. If the tooth is permanent, rinse it and attempt to place it back in the socket. If you cannot reinsert the tooth, keep it moist in a container of water, milk, or saliva. Do not touch the roots of the tooth and avoid brushing it.

If a baby tooth is unexpectedly knocked out, leave it out and contact your child's dentist right away for guidance.

In case you are unable to visit our office immediately, several home remedies can help alleviate your discomfort until you receive treatment, such as:

  • Warm water rinses for sore teeth and gums

  • Over-the-counter pain medication, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen (Tylenol)

  • Ice packs applied to the outside of your cheeks

  • Dental anesthetics containing benzocaine can be used as directed on the package for pain relief

  • To reduce sensitivity, avoid consuming excessively hot or cold foods and beverages

  • If you have jaw pain, heating pads can be used

  • Refrain from chewing in the injured area

  • If a broken tooth has a sharp edge, protect the soft tissues in your mouth by placing cotton over it

We are here to help you with any dental emergency you may experience. Please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance, as we can offer you timely dental care and help prevent serious complications.
