Dental emergencies can be very painful physically and emotionally. In any emergency, the first step is to remain calm and asses the severity of the injury.
If your mouth is bleeding or you’re having trouble speaking, please visit your local emergency room for the immediate care. If your injury does not require an emergency room visit, but you are still in a tremendous amount of pain please call RDA today to schedule your emergency visit immediately. Our expert team will help provide relief as quickly as possible for a variety of emergency situations.
What are Dental Emergencies?
- Lost filling or crown
- Painful toothache
- Object caught in teeth
- Oral bleeding and injury to gums
- Partially or fully dislodged tooth
- Broken, cracked, chipped or fractured tooth
Dental Emergency best practices: If you have a lot of irritation or swelling, place a teaspoon of salt in a coffee cup of boiling water and use it as a warm mouthwash. For a missing tooth, place it in a glass of milk until you can visit our Manassas Park office. Lightly floss to remove lodged food particles in your teeth.
Immediately place ice to areas that are swelling. This should reduce swelling, reduce irritation, and minimize bleeding.

A lot of emergencies occur by an accident and can’t be avoided. However, to help avoid dental emergencies here are a few tips:
- Be careful when eating particularly sticky or hard foods.
- When participating in an athletic event where physical contact with a hard surface or another person is possible, make sure to always wear a mouthguard.
- Do not open difficult packaging with your teeth – use scissors instead.
