Chronic pain, tooth loss or severe oral trauma – at Lincoln Park Smiles we are here for you in your time of need
If you have experienced a dental emergency in the Chicago area we do our very best to see you as soon as possible. Our team of professionals will ensure that any pain or discomfort that you are feeling is minimized, and any aesthetic problems are treated. Lincoln Park Smiles stresses that it is vitally important to see a dental professional as soon as possible if you have
- A tooth that has been knocked out
- Chipped or broken teeth
- An extruded (partially dislodged) tooth
- A lost filling or crown
- Soft tissue injuries to your tongue, cheeks or lips
Know when to walk, and when to run…
If your tooth has been knocked out it is important to see a dentist within 30 minutes. This can mean the difference between saving and losing your tooth! Pick your tooth up by the crown (never the root) and gently rinse it with milk. You should then store the tooth in a container of milk or in your cheek until you reach the closest available dentist.
If you are experiencing dental pain, we offer 24-hour emergency dental service as we understand that even 30 minutes could mean the difference between your natural tooth and a prosthetic tooth.
Remember: prevention is better than a cure as it’s better to have a tooth treated than extracted. Why? Extraction is a last resort as your natural tooth is the most stable and durable fixture, compared to prosthetic solutions. If you are experiencing toothache visit us today to see how our Chicago dentists can help you.
