Dental Emergency Care at Our Virginia Beach Office

Same Day Appointments Available for Dental Emergencies

At Smile By Design in Virginia Beach, VA, our compassionate professionals give priority appointments to patients experiencing dental emergencies. We do everything possible to schedule your emergency visit the same day you call us at 757-499-9639.


Certain dental procedures may increase temperature and pressure sensitivity around the treated area. Anesthetic injection sites may also feel sore. In most cases, an over-the-counter pain reliever is enough to alleviate discomfort. If your pain worsens, or you’re having unusual reactions, call Smile By Design.

Lodged Object

If an object gets stuck between your teeth, gently use dental floss. If floss doesn’t remove the item, it’s time to call us. Using a sharp instrument to dig out the item may result in damage to your teeth and gums. Let us help! Call Smile By Design and let our team know you have a dental emergency.

Knocked-Out Tooth

If your tooth is knocked out, don’t scrub off any residual tissue! If you can, return the tooth to its socket, or put the tooth into a glass of milk or Hank's Balanced Solution. Call our Virginia Beach dental practice as soon as possible. The sooner you see one of our dentists, the greater the chances your tooth can be saved.

Bitten Tongue

If you bite your tongue, clean the area as much as possible and use a cold compress to reduce swelling. Deep or large cuts or wounds that continually bleed should be taken care of at our Virginia Beach office as soon as possible.


A tooth that’s decayed, cracked, or broken often invites a bacterial infection. If your tooth hurts, throbs, or aches, you may have an interior infection that requires root canal therapy. Root canal therapy can save your tooth structure and restore health to your mouth. Never ignore a toothache! At Smile By Design, we offer very comfortable and anxiety-free treatments.
