How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in Virginia BeachOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
Virginia Beach is a city with around 300 dentists, according to KFF2, making it fairly simple to locate one. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency however, you will want to schedule an appointment immediately. In these cases, searching for one using Google or Yelp won’t help much since they only give you information about dentists, such as an address or phone number. A far better option is to call us, and let us schedule an appointment for you. Our US based call center is open 24/7, meaning you can call us at any time of the day, and our dental referral specialists are specially trained to locate an emergency dentist that best suits your needs. Regardless of your type of insurance, we can locate a dentist that is in network with it, or accepts your form of payment. Dentist offices cooperating with us can also offer help with financing if needed.
In case you’re not sure what exactly is considered a dental emergency, we can help. It’s any situation where your tooth is broken, fractured, or knocked out, your crown is chipped or it fell out, your gums are bleeding, you have facial swelling or you’re suffering from unbearable pain in your tooth, and need immediate assistance. A chipped tooth, while seemingly only a cosmetic problem, can easily get infected or completely fractured, if not treated immediately.
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.
Before you go to see your dentist, think about some questions you can ask before and after your procedure.
If you’re suffering from dental anxiety, you should inform your dentist prior to your arrival so you can talk about sedation options. There are different types of sedation, depending on your level of anxiety and the complexity of your treatment. For simple procedures, the dentist will only use laughing gas or give you oral medication. For major procedures, IV sedation will be used, and sometimes even general anesthesia, which completely puts you to sleep. While scheduling an appointment, tell the dentist if you’re using any medication. Some medicine can interfere with anesthesia, so the dentist may instruct you to not take it before your arrival.
After you finish with your procedure, you can tell your dentist about products you use to clean your teeth, as he might have some suggestions. Also ask about your dental hygiene habits, and your dentist will tell you which parts you should improve, be it flossing or just buying mouthwash. If you’ve noticed any changes to a tooth, inform the dentist about it, and he can pay more attention to that part of your mouth. You might have a problem with your tooth which is not visible from the outside by the dentist, so he might have to do an x-ray.

According to a research done by McKinsey & Company, around 31% of adults in Virginia haven’t had a dental visit in the last 12 months3. Our offices want to drive this percentage down by helping people locate a dentist and immediately scheduling an appointment. American Dental Association reports that out of the people that haven’t been to the dentist in the past year, 22% state the reason that the location or time was inconvenient, and 19% had trouble finding a dentist4. In case you’re having a dental emergency, give us a call at any time of the day, and we will make sure that in less than three minutes, you have an appointment scheduled with an emergency dentist near you. We have access to dentists appointment books, so we can schedule an appointment for the first thing in the morning if no dentist offices near you are open at night.
It is always better to schedule an appointment instead of asking for a walk-in. Dentists are most likely to turn you away if you come to their office unannounced, and schedule an appointment for a later time, because of a number of reasons. The dentist may sometimes perform a checkup on one patient, while another is waiting for anesthesia to take effect if they’re busy. They cannot do this if patients don’t have a scheduled appointment. Also the staff at the office needs to contact your insurance company to check your information, before giving you an accurate pricing, and this may take time, which is another reasons it’s better to call ahead.
Top emergency dentist procedures in Virginia BeachLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
One of the top emergency procedures in Virginia Beach is treatment of a chipped or a broken crown. You might still be able to chew on food with a chipped crown, but it should be repaired immediately. If not treated as soon as possible, the crown can completely break, and even damage the tooth underneath it or adjacent teeth. The tooth can also get infected, requiring the dentist to perform an extraction. A chipped crown doesn’t necessarily need to be replaced; there is a chance it can be polished if the damage is not extensive. This can save you time and money, but only if you treat it as a dental emergency and see the dentist as soon as possible.
