How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in CharlestonOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
According to a research done by McKinsey & Company, around 46% of adults in West Virginia haven’t had a dental visit in the last 12 months3. The longer you wait to see the dentist, the more likely it is that you will develop problems with your teeth. Any cavities or untreated chipped teeth or crowns that are left untreated can result in a dental emergency, where the pain can become unbearable. Also the cost of the procedure will be higher because dental problems not treated on time result in more demanding and extensive procedures, such as root canals and installing a crown.
While you can search for a dentist using Google Maps or even Yelp, a far better option is to give us a call. We won’t only locate a dentist near you, but we will schedule an emergency appointment with one. Our US based call center is open 24/7, meaning you can call us any time of the day, and our dental referral specialists will find a dentist for you. Even if you call us in the middle of the night, when no dentist offices around you are open, we will schedule an appointment for the first thing in the morning with a dentist near you. We can do this thanks to our close cooperation with dentist offices throughout the US, which gives us access to dentists’ appointment books. Call 1-800-336-8478 and allow us to locate an emergency dentist near you best suited for your needs and schedule an immediate appointment.
Things to know before your emergency dentist appointmentPreparing for your emergency dental visit will help minimize anxiety and reduce the overall time you will have to spend at the dentist office.
When you’re getting ready to go to the dentist, don’t forget your health insurance card, and any other related information you might need, such as a list of medication you’re taking or are allergic to. The most useful thing for both you and the dentist are your dental records. They contain all information about your past visits, the medication you’re taking, procedures you had, and locations of all your cavities, fillings and crowns. Having dental records can also save you time and money because they contain your x-rays, meaning you won’t have to take new ones. If you’re seeing the same dentist as before, they will have your dental records. However, if you’re changing dentists, make sure you contact your previous dentist to obtain a copy of them, or ask them to directly e-mail them to your new dentist.
The best way to keep your teeth in good condition is to see a dentist every six months. That’s why it’s a good idea to schedule your next appointment as soon as you’re finished with your last one. This will ensure you don’t procrastinate going to the dentist again in six months for a regular checkup.
As soon as you’re done with your treatment, don’t forget to ask your dentist questions, such as how long you have to wait until you can start chewing with the repaired tooth, is the toothpaste you’re using good, or does the dentist have any suggestions about your dental hygiene habits.

A walk-in means you go to the dentist unannounced, or without scheduling an appointment first, and have the dentist immediately take you in. While there are places that advertise as accepting walk-ins, the truth is that most dentist offices prefer patients to schedule an appointment first. One of the main reasons for this is that in order to efficiently run an office, the dentist should have your insurance information for an accurate pricing and information about what kind of dental problem you’re experiencing and what treatment you need. Some dentist offices do procedures such as root canals, or wisdom teeth extraction, only on certain days of the week, while they leave simple procedures for other days. A dentist can perform a checkup on one patient, while another is waiting for anesthesia to take effect. This takes planning, and is impossible if a patient comes unannounced. For these reasons, the staff at the dentist office may turn you away, asking you to schedule an appointment for a later time.
People might especially look for a walk-in when they have free time, which is mostly on weekends, but according to the American Dental Association, only 4% of dentists in the US are open on Sundays, and 45% are open on Saturdays4. Instead of looking for a walk-in dentist, give us a call and let our dental referral specialists locate one for you and schedule an emergency appointment with a dentist near you.
Top emergency dentist procedures in CharlestonLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
The top emergency procedures in Charleston, like the rest of West Virginia, are treatment of a chipped or fractured tooth. Another dental emergency that commonly occurs is a knocked out tooth. In case your tooth gets knocked out, pick it up by the head of the tooth, and gently rinse under water, making sure you don’t touch or scrub the root of the tooth, since it may have tissue that will help the dentist successfully reinsert it later. After rinsing it, put the tooth in a container filled with milk, or try to put it back into its socket and bite down gently until you see the dentist. Time is everything when it comes to a knocked out tooth, because if you want higher chances of saving the tooth, you should see a dentist in less than an hour after your tooth gets knocked out.
