Having a Dental Emergency? Call (434) 251-3100

Emergency Dentistry in Danville & Chatham

Danville Dental Associates offers same-day emergency care.

In your hour of need, Danville Dental Associates is here for you! Emergency dental situations, such as extreme pain or infection, swelling, bleeding, or injuries to the teeth or gums, often require quick attention – usually within 24 to 48 hours. 

Toothaches are one of the most common causes for emergency dental calls. Pain in the teeth may be indicative of a number of oral health concerns including tooth decay, dental damage like chips or cracks, abscess, or a need for root canal therapy.

A visual exam and digital x-ray will be used to help our dentists determine the exact cause your toothache, so we can create a personalized treatment plan to relieve toothache pain and restore full form and function to your smile. Even if you think your toothache pain has subsided or gone away entirely, we recommend you contact our office to schedule an appointment. Apart from rare instances, toothache pain does not go away on its own, and the longer you wait to receive treatment, the more severe the concern may be. 

Emergency dentistry cases can include:

Danville Dental Associates offers same-day emergency care during our regular business hours. Simply call one of our Danville offices to make an appointment.  The staff will schedule a time with your regular dentist or our doctor on call, if your preferred provider is not available.

Some situations are sometimes considered urgent care, when the patient is not experiencing pain or discomfort and their dental health is not immediately compromised. They should be taken care of as soon as possible, but do not necessarily need immediate attention.

Urgent Care cases include:

In those situations, we will endeavor to find an appointment for you to take care of your problem that same day or as soon as possible. If you require after hours care, call the Danville Dental Associates location where you normally receive your care. You will be directed to a doctor who will assist you with your needs.

New patients are also welcome to take advantage of our emergency and urgent care services!
