If you happen to be in an emergency situation and need dental treatment, we can help you schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Our goal is to ensure your problem doesn’t persist or get worse, while making sure you don’t experience any prolonged pain, discomfort or anxiety. During your visit, Dr. Auslander will evaluate your current condition before explaining the best possible solutions. On most occasions we may be able to begin and even complete your treatment during the same appointment.

Do I need to see an emergency dentist or should I wait?

Usually if you have gone to the trouble of searching for a dentist after hours you will need to see us. If you are unsure or would like to discuss your dental issue, please call us at  301-262-2125.

 For aches and tooth pain

If the pain has come on suddenly, is sharp and throbbing, or if the pain is not subsiding, we recommend urgent treatment.

For damaged teeth (broken, cracked, dislodged)

Teeth that have been damaged from accidents come with different degrees of pain, trauma and anxiety relating to the appearance of your smile. To save and repair damaged teeth and to be sure severe trauma and damage hasn’t occurred, please call us to discuss and make an appointment.

For cosmetic, orthodontic and other fixtures

Sometimes you may need a temporary fix and other times, a permanent one. Whatever the problem, please call us to see how we can help.

How to tell if you have a dental or a hospital emergency

The sudden onset of extreme pain to your teeth or gums, without any physical accident occurring, is usually a dental emergency. Other emergencies associated with your mouth may occur so please call us if:
• Your tooth is knocked out, displaced or cracked
• A dental fixture is broken or stuck (eg. Braces wire)
• An object is stuck in your teeth
• Your mouth or teeth are injured in a sporting accident

You should visit the emergency department of your local hospital if your jaw is broken or your lips, gums or tongue are severed or severely damaged.
