Scheduling your emergency dental appointment:
We understand that you are in pain and will do everything we can to see you the same day or during emergency hours to help you find relief. To access emergency hour information and instructions, call us at Fairfax Office Phone Number 703-539-0400 as soon as severe tooth pain occurs.
What to expect at your appointment:
First, we will help determine the source of your pain, through careful evaluation and x-rays. Should treatment be needed, we will work to resolve the underlying problem. Treatment may include medication and/or starting root canal treatment. Either way, we would do our best to help you achieve fast pain relief! Occasionally, in the event that the tooth cannot be saved, we will refer you to an oral surgeon for extraction.
