Am I Experiencing a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is any situation requiring urgent care to relieve pain, save a tooth, treat an infection, or stop bleeding. The first thing to do is to call our office and talk to our emergency dentist. We'll evaluate the situation and schedule a same-day appointment if needed. We'll also provide you with advice on caring for your emergency before heading to our office. 

If you experience a dental emergency outside our business hours, please call our office for guidance. We're happy to offer concierge emergency dental care for an added fee during nights and weekends to ensure you receive the prompt relief you need. 

Note: If you experience a life-threatening emergency, please call 911 immediately.

What Are Common Dental Emergencies?

Knocked-Out Tooth: A knocked-out permanent tooth has the best chance of being saved when treated within an hour of injury. Make sure to call us immediately for an emergency appointment. Meanwhile, pick up the tooth by its crown without touching the root. Rinse it gently, and try to return it to its socket. If that's not possible, place it in a container of milk and head to your emergency appointment. 

Severe Tooth Pain: Sudden, severe, or persistent pain requires emergency care. However, before contacting us for an appointment, use floss to ensure there's nothing stuck between two teeth, which could be causing your discomfort. Another cause of pain could be deep decay or a tooth pulp infection. We will evaluate the tooth and recommend the most conservative treatment option to provide you with the needed relief. 

Soft Tissue Injury: If you have bleeding from your mouth due to an injury to the gums, tongue, cheeks, or lips, contact us for an emergency appointment. Meanwhile, rinse with warm water and apply pressure to stop the bleeding. If you can't control the bleeding, call 911 or head to your nearest emergency room. 

Other Dental Emergencies: A broken, chipped, or cracked tooth or a damaged dental restoration such as a crown or filling will require emergency care. Call our office to schedule an appointment, and we will provide you with care tips until we see you. 

How Can You Prevent Dental Emergencies?

The best way to lower the risk of dental emergencies is to maintain excellent oral hygiene practices and visit our Buffalo Grove office for your twice-a-year dental checkups and cleanings. Our dedicated team will monitor your oral health and treat any dental issues as they arise, preventing them from progressing and becoming emergencies. If you play sports or grind your teeth in your sleep, a sports mouthguard or a night guard will prevent damage to your teeth and gums.
