Reasons to See an Emergency Dentist

Published on May 6th, 2020

There are a wide variety of reasons someone may need to visit the dentist in an emergency. Common reasons include sports injuries, auto accidents, and even regular sibling roughhousing. If you feel you need treatment, it makes sense to see a dentist as soon as possible to avoid exacerbating the problem and requiring any more costly treatment. Here are some of the common reasons to make a visit to the South Loop emergency dentist.

Severe Oral Pain

Oral problems such as severe tooth decay, gingivitis, or infection tend to make themselves known via toothaches or painful, throbbing gums. While many people experience temporary tooth pain without serious underlying issues, if the pain continues for over 24 hours, it can possibly be a sign of a severe oral health issue.

Missing or Damaged Teeth

If you are ever in the unfortunate situation where you or someone around you chips, loosens or breaks a tooth, this is the time to act fast. The person needs to visit a South Loop emergency dentist right away in order to have a chance at preserving the missing tooth.

Broken Dentures

While there are several different types of dentures, some more durable than others, these dental solutions have a tendency to be quite fragile. If you or anyone you know drops his or her dentures or chews something that breaks the dentures, you should see an emergency dentist as soon as possible. While the ultimate solution may end up being denture repair, the emergency dentist will be able to give professional advice on how to proceed with the broken denture.
