At Schön Dentistry, we realize a dental emergency can strike at any time; fortunately, you can always depend on us as your emergency dentist. Our compassionate team at Schon Dentistry will always try to accommodate emergency appointments as best we can to keep you from experiencing pain a moment longer.
It’s not always easy to tell if your dental issue is an emergency; while some issues are obvious, such as a knocked-out tooth or broken teeth, some problems are more subtle but should still be quickly addressed. Schedule an emergency appointment with us if you’re experiencing any of the following:
- A severe toothache that lingers after flossing and brushing
- A knocked out, broken, cracked tooth
- A painful chipped tooth
- Broken or loose braces
- A lost filling or crown
- A loose tooth
- Swollen, painful gums
- Oral bleeding that won’t stop
Severe and sudden toothaches should always be evaluated by one of our dentists as soon as possible; prolonged dental infections can lead to abscesses, which are not only painful but can affect your overall health. If you’re experiencing dental pain accompanied by a fever, facial swelling, or swollen lymph nodes, contact us as soon as possible, as these are symptoms that could suggest you may have an abscessed tooth.
The best way to prevent dental emergencies is to stay proactive with your dental health and use protective gear while engaging in sports or other recreational activities, however, dental emergencies can also occur from unforeseen events such as car accidents or unexpectedly biting down on something hard. Whatever is the cause, we’ll tailor a custom treatment plan to fit your needs and restore your oral health.
If you’re experiencing pain, swelling, or any other troublesome symptoms, don’t hesitate to give our Springfield IL office a call at 217-697-5190 or feel free to schedule an appointment through our online form.
