Have you or a member of your family suffered a dental injury? Don’t wait! Call or visit the caring dental professionals at your local Dental Town location! We offer emergency dentistry to adults and children in the Chicagoland area.

What Is Emergency Dentistry?

When a problem occurs, it’s important to know what kind of care you need. Sometimes it just can’t wait for a regular appointment, and you need to be seen right away. A dental emergency refers to any condition that needs immediate attention from a trained dentist or another dental professional to treat. Without proper dental care, your condition can worsen, causing unnecessary pain and damage.

Be sure to call our Chicago office as soon as possible if you or a member of your family experience one or more of the following conditions:

  • Dental infection
  • Pain, redness, or swelling in your mouth or jaw
  • Severe toothache
  • Bleeding in your mouth
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Fractured or broken tooth roots
  • An injury in your gums, tongue, or cheeks
  • Sports-related mouth injuries

Our team will see you as soon as possible!

How Do I Know I Need Emergency Dental Care?

Not every dental problem requires an emergency visit. If you experience any pain, swelling, or bleeding, be sure to call our office right away. Even if you don’t experience any pain or discomfort, it’s important to call our office for treatment as soon as possible. You should call us if you experience:

    • A broken or missing filling
    • A loose bridge
    • A broken or missing crown
    • Other issues that interfere with your ability to bite, chew, or speak properly

    • Repair your chipped, cracked, or broken tooth using composite bonding.
    • Cap your injured tooth using a porcelain crown and restore its natural look, function, and strength.
    • Remove an infected or inflamed tooth root and clear a dental infection during an emergency root canal procedure.

But never let the cost of dental care keep you from seeking the help you need! We strive to provide affordable services in our community to help Chicagoland receive the best possible care.

How Can I Avoid An Emergency Visit?

    • Always wear a properly fitted mouthguard when playing contact sports or enjoying other physical activities.
    • Never chew on pens, pencils, or tools.
