There are many situations that call for emergency dental care, from an intense toothache, a cracked tooth or to more extreme cases as a result of a tooth having been knocked out.
When you are caught with a sudden toothache or damaged tooth, you want the ease of mind knowing that your regular dentist is there to help put you on the road to recovery.
Most fractures cannot be avoided because they happen when you least expect them. However, you can reduce the risk of breaking teeth by trying to eliminate clenching habits during waking hours, chewing hard and sticky foods such as pork crackling and candy.
If you think you grind your teeth at night, ask your dentist if a night guard or a splint will be of use to you. Individuals who have problems with tooth wear or “cracked tooth syndrome” should consider wearing a night guard while sleeping. This will absorb most of the grinding forces.
Within twenty-four hours of your call, our dentists in Des Plaines and Joliet, Illinois will be able to assess your emergency and take the required steps.
