During these visits the dentist has the opportunity to fully assess your oral health and to look for any issues that may develop into a real problem. However, just because you take good care of your teeth does not necessarily mean that you won’t have an unexpected problem that could lead to an emergency.

    Common Dental Emergencies

    Knocked out tooth: In the event a tooth is knocked out, time is of the essence. The sooner the tooth can be put back in the socket the better the chances are that the surrounding tissue will once again support it. Never pick up the tooth by the root, if it is dirty wash it under the warm water tap. If you can put it back in then do so, if not, put the tooth in milk which is a natural growth medium. Get to a Chicago Smile Design emergency dentist as quickly as you can, we will take it from there. Don’t forget, time is of the essence. Toothache: There are times when a toothache causes excruciating pain; this can be an emergency situation. The cause of the pain is important to identify as it could be a serious issue, it could be the result of an abscess, infected gum leading to root exposure or serious decay. The longer you go without treatment, the worse the pain will become and the problem can only get worse.
