Judi, Lansdowne, VA
Judi isn’t even sure when her chipped tooth happened—all she knew was that it had been there for years. “Going to the dentist was the most nerve-wracking thing for me. I put it off for years. But Dr. Kamboh took care of me and made me feel comfortable.”
We were able to see Judi right away to fix her tooth and ease her pain. She came in after work that evening and we repaired her chipped tooth with dental bonding. Now, she’s pain-free with a beautiful smile, but more importantly, her dental anxiety has lessened too.
“My friends and family know how much I dislike going to the dentist… but now I’m referring them to Dr. Kamboh. They know if I’m comfortable there, they’ll be too.”

Common FAQs on Emergency Care
Life-threatening emergencies, such as maxillofacial trauma, uncontrolled bleeding from the mouth, or facial swelling that crosses the midline or impacts breathing or speaking, need to be treated as emergencies and require a visit to the ER.
A broken tooth generally requires visiting the dental office. In fact, tooth breakages are one of the most common dental emergencies. Many people may experience broken teeth while participating in sports-related events, taking a fall or eating. Although broken teeth are a serious issue, there are forms of fractures that do not fall under the emergency category, such as minor tooth fractures or chipped teeth.
If your tooth cracks in half, call your dental office immediately to set up an appointment. Make sure to let them know, your tooth is cracked in half. A broken tooth could get worse and become infected.
