Our caring dentist, Dr. Chetan Parikh, and his skilled dental team offer efficient and quick dental emergency care in Rockville, Maryland. We understand that you cannot always plan when you will need dental care. In general, Dr. Chetan Parikh can meet with patients needing emergency care the same day or within 24 hours. Common dental emergencies include:
- Extreme toothaches or tooth pain
- Knocked-out teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Lost fillings or crowns
- Extruded (partially knocked-out) teeth
- Gum or soft tissue injuries (tongue, lips, etc.)
- Broken brackets or framework on traditional braces
If you or a family member experiences one of these or another type of dental emergency, we urge you to contact us at Chetan Parikh, DMD, MDS as soon as possible. Until your visit with Dr. Chetan Parikh at our dental office, we suggest taking over-the-counter pain medication, such as ibuprofen, as needed. Do not take ibuprofen for more the two days, and not more than 2400 mg total in a 24-hour period.
You can reach Dr. Chetan Parikh by phone for more over-the-counter remedies until you are able to schedule an appointment. Please do not hesitate to call us in case of a dental emergency. We look forward to caring for your smile.
