How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

Before you get to our dental office, there are steps you can take to help yourself in a dental emergency.

Tooth Pain

If you have a toothache, try using a cold compress on and off the affected area for 20-minute intervals. Take an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen or Advil. Rinsing your mouth with warm salt water can reduce inflammation and loosen food particles stuck between your teeth.

Jaw Pain or Swelling

Jaw pain or swelling indicates a serious problem like a dental abscess or tooth infection. Take an OTC pain reliever and use a cold compress to minimize swelling. Call us right away.

Broken Tooth

A broken tooth may not be an urgent dental emergency unless you are in pain or the break has left behind jagged edges. Call and let us know what’s happening, and we will provide further guidance.

Lost Dental Crown or Filling

If a dental crown comes off, try to place it on the tooth again; if you can’t, wrap it in tissue and bring it to your appointment at Wicker Park Dental Group. 

For a lost tooth filling, we will need to replace it as possible to prevent further damage and help you avoid discomfort. 

Dental Trauma

A knocked-out tooth is extremely time-sensitive as we have about two hours to reimplant it in your jaw successfully. Handle the tooth by the crown only, and do not touch the root! Try to reinsert the tooth gently in the socket; if you can’t, place it in a container of milk or saliva to keep it moist.

Call us so we can prepare for your arrival and have a friend drive you safely to our dental office.

Orlando C

“As a person who hates needles and had bad teeth let me tell you how much I hate the dentist office. Some of my experiences have been so painful I wait until I absolutely have no choice before returning. All of that changed with my experience here! The staff top to bottom front house to back room 5 Star amazing. The doctor so kind so patient explained everything in detail a ton of options. And last but not least … but most important to me little to no pain. Thank the heavens for “ these great people” I’m a customer for life and I look forward to better oral health. Sincerely, ( with a tear of joy ) Orlando.”
