Our top Lansing, IL emergency dentist makes time to treat emergencies in our dental office. We always do everything we can to get you in quickly. The goals of our emergency dentistry are to ease your pain and save your teeth.
Common dental emergencies include any one of the following:
- Tooth loss
- Loose tooth
- Broken restoration or appliance
If your tooth is knocked out completely, clean it with water, avoid touching the root, and try to keep it moist until your emergency visit. In some cases, we can save the tooth!
If you’ve experienced a trauma, however, we want you to seek emergency services in your local ER. You can contact us from there.
Preventing dental emergencies begins with regular exams and cleanings. Having your teeth cleaned at least twice per year lowers your dental emergency risk by helping to prevent infections.
If you grind or clench your teeth while sleeping, ask our dentist about custom nightguards. Grinding and clenching can lead to sudden tooth breakage and dental infections.
Also, wear the proper face gear when playing sports!
