If you are in dental pain, give us a call at 630-916-0701 to come in for professional care in Lombard for your dental emergency!
If you’re having a dental emergency these are the steps you need to follow:
For a knocked-out tooth or more than one knocked-out teeth, attempt to clean your mouth and the affected tooth with warm water, holding the tooth by its dental crown. If it is not possible to place the tooth back into the mouth, keep it moist in cold milk or saliva and visit to the emergency dentist for a same day appointment. If you have a cracked or broken tooth, gently rinse the mouth with warm water and call us right away. For toothaches or chronic tooth pain, rinse with warm water and carefully floss to remove any remaining food particles. Place a cold ice pack to your cheek to reduce swelling.
Preventive Steps During a Dental Emergency
If a dental emergency has resulted in a damaged tooth or toothache, keep your mouth clean and away from acidic drinks or foods to prevent further damage. If a tooth has fallen out, do not touch the exposed root of the tooth or remove any remaining gum tissue. In any situation of a dental emergency or dental pain, give us a call at 630-916-0701 to schedule treatment. It could save your tooth!
