Same-Day Care for Dental Emergencies
Looking for an emergency pediatric dentist in Washington, DC? Look no further. Dr. Roya Pilcher provides care for a range of dental emergencies, including toothaches, chipped or fractured teeth, and traumatic dental injuries. If your child experiences a dental emergency, call Smile Valley Pediatric Dentistry at (202) 237-2833 right away and we’ll schedule your child for a visit the same day. We always prioritize kids who are in pain and we’ll make sure your child gets the treatment (and relief!) they need.
Benefits of Emergency Dental Care
Receiving emergency dental care within an hour or two of a tooth becoming loose or getting knocked out increases the chances it can be reimplanted and saved.
Our pediatric dentist will examine your child to determine the cause of their discomfort and provide the appropriate treatment to get them out of pain quickly.
The earlier a toothache, chipped tooth, or dental injury is addressed, the more likely it is that the least invasive treatment option will be effective.
Getting Your Child’s Smile Back on Track
When you visit with an emergency pediatric dentist at our Washington, DC practice, our experienced, friendly dentists will put your little one at ease. They’ll perform a thorough but gentle examination, and a team member may take diagnostic records, such as digital x-rays, if needed.
We’ll make sure we alleviate your child’s pain as quickly as possible at your emergency visit. Once your child is no longer in pain, if further treatment is required, we can work with you to come up with a personalized treatment plan that fits your family’s needs. Calling us right away after a dental injury will help increase the odds that your child’s tooth can be saved.
More than 5 million teeth are knocked out each year in children and adults.
