Where can I reach a dentist who provides emergency dentistry in my community?

Dental emergencies occur unexpectedly and can impact the smile, including the teeth and gums. At Libertyville Dental Associates of Libertyville, Illinois, our providers work with patients to help them in their time of need to resolve emergencies. Knowing what constitutes a dental emergency is the first step in deciding if our team can help.

What common dental emergencies are handled by Libertyville Dental Associates?

  • Knocked-out tooth. Our team is trained to handle a knocked-out tooth with speed and efficiency. This can happen sometimes due to a sports injury, accident, or other trauma. A knocked-out tooth is considered a dental emergency because there is only a short timeframe within which the tooth can be saved and re-implanted. If you or your child experience this type of emergency, you must visit the dentist within one hour of loss to increase the likelihood of reattachment.
  • Severe toothache. A severe and persistent toothache is not a regular occurrence and is often a sign of an underlying issue such as infection or decay. Our dental team will work to identify the specific cause of the pain and provide appropriate treatment. Sometimes, a simple filling can address the issue, while other patients might need an emergency root canal. Regardless of the treatment, our team at Libertyville Dental Associates will work to alleviate your pain and restore your oral health.
  • Broken or chipped tooth. Accidents can happen, and a broken or chipped tooth can result from biting into something hard or sustaining a blow to the face. If this occurs, visit Libertyville Dental Associates as soon as possible. Our team assesses the damage and provides the necessary treatment to repair or restore the tooth.
  • Lost filling or crown. Losing a dental filling or porcelain crown can leave your natural tooth vulnerable to further damage and increased sensitivity. We understand the urgency of this situation and will work to replace the lost restoration as soon as possible.
