Urgent Dental Care: Finding an Emergency Dentist When You Need It

At Dental Center of Tysons Corner, we provide emergency dental care that helps to restore a tooth that sustains damage from an accident or infection. If you live in McLean or the surrounding area, we encourage you to save our phone number. Since there is no way to tell if or when you may have a dental emergency, putting (703) 552-8128 in your contact list can save you a trip to the emergency room.

Finding an emergency dentist when you need it can make all the difference in ensuring prompt and effective treatment. Dental emergencies can occur unexpectedly, causing pain and discomfort that requires immediate attention. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to find an emergency dentist quickly and efficiently.

Why we provide emergency dental care

We provide emergency dental care to ensure that patients can get the help they need right away. If you leave a damaged or infected tooth alone, you will risk the infection spreading.

What types of procedures does an emergency dentist perform?

At Dental Center of Tysons Corner, our team provides the same type of services that you can receive during a traditional dental visit. The two most common issues that we address during emergency dental visits are:


It is actually fairly common for teeth to sustain damage in an accident. The damage can be due to a standard car accident, workplace injury, sports accident or other situation. While most adults do not think about cracking a tooth while playing a pickup game of basketball – it happens. These casual everyday events can lead to sudden tooth damage and if they do, you need to be sure to repair the damage as soon as possible. While providing emergency dental care, we can fix a cracked tooth, chipped tooth or even a tooth that is knocked out.

If you need an immediate dental restoration in the McLean area, visit our office. For fast results we can use dental bonding. This is a resin, tooth-colored material that can be placed on top of your tooth, shaped, and hardened using a special dental light. It can be completed in one sitting so that you can walk in with a chipped tooth and leave with a fully restored one. Other solutions like dental veneers and dental crowns are also available to correct damage but typically require two visits to do so.

We can also provide emergency dental care if your tooth has been knocked out due to an accident or has fallen out after becoming loose. If you can find the tooth, rinse it and put it in a cup of milk, then come to our McLean, VA dental office right away. There is a possibility that the tooth can be put back in your mouth. Otherwise, we can discuss replacement options that include dentures, a dental bridge, or a dental implant. All of these are possibilities that can appear completely natural so to learn more about them, call 703-827-9250.


With emergency dental care, we see a lot of Virginia patients that are suffering from a major toothache. This is a top reason that people seek out care right away instead of waiting for Monday or for the dentist to open in the morning. When a toothache strikes it can be debilitating and we can provide relief. The good news is that it does not have to be. 

At Dental Center of Tysons Corner, we have found that most toothaches do not happen without warning. Typically, there are signs that can include discomfort when biting down, sensitivity to heat or cold, irritation when brushing or flossing, etc. If you sense any of these things, we encourage you to call (703) 827-9250 and schedule an appointment for a dental exam.

We can examine your teeth, look for any signs of infection or decay and treat the problem before you go from moderate discomfort to a raging toothache. Our friendly McLean staff can work with you to schedule an appointment that fits within your schedule so that you have no reason to delay in seeking treatment. However, if you do not come in right away and do develop a bad toothache, we want to see you.

One of the common reasons for a bad toothache is severe decay or an infection. To resolve this issue, we may need to perform a root canal. We can do this while providing you with emergency dental care. Since the discomfort is caused by the infection, removing it will help you to feel better right away. First, we will numb the area and provide you with anesthesia and then create a small hole in your tooth so that the infected portion of it can be removed.

Once done, the area will be cleaned before it is sealed. We will do everything available to safely ensure that the procedure is comfortable. After we finish the procedure, you will begin to feel significantly better than when you first came in. Sometimes it is also necessary to restore the tooth with a dental filling or crown. If this is the case we can either complete that portion of the procedure immediately or schedule a second appointment to do so.

When searching for an emergency dentist, it’s important to prioritize certain factors to ensure you receive the best possible care. Here are some key considerations to keep in mind:

Dental Location:

Finding an emergency dentist when you need it can make all the difference in ensuring prompt and effective treatment. Dental emergencies can occur unexpectedly, causing pain and discomfort that requires immediate attention. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to find an emergency dentist quickly and efficiently.

Dental Availability

Check the availability of the emergency dentist. Ideally, choose a dental practice that offers extended hours, including evenings, weekends, and holidays, to accommodate emergencies outside of regular office hours.

Emergency Services

Confirm that the dental practice provides emergency services. Not all dental offices offer emergency care, so it’s crucial to find a dentist who specializes in handling dental emergencies promptly and effectively.
