Stopping Pain and Saving Teeth with Emergency Dentistry

Almost everyone has experienced a toothache at some point in life. Whether the tooth pain is minor or significant, a toothache causes considerable discomfort, often with very little notice. When you experience a toothache that doesn’t respond to home remedies, you should seek treatment immediately to manage the pain and resolve the underlying cause. 

When you are in great pain and need urgent dental care, don’t hesitate to contact Dentalogic in Oak Lawn, Illinois. We offer emergency dental care to handle urgent dental cases. Dr. Homam Saadi and the team have the skills and equipment to handle dental emergencies, whether an excruciating toothache or a broken tooth.  

What Counts As A Dental Emergency?

Any dental situation that requires urgent dental care counts as a dental emergency. Dental emergencies should be treated immediately; otherwise, delaying or postponing treatment causes unnecessary pain and may cost you a tooth.

Seek emergency dental care when you experience the situations below.

  • A debilitating toothache
  • A broken or fractured tooth
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • A dental abscess 
  • Loose or fallen out dental work

When any of the above occurs, call us immediately. Even before you reach our office, our team will offer first-aid tips over the phone to manage pain and preserve your oral health. When you arrive at our office, we’ll provide a quick diagnosis and recommend emergency extractions, tooth fillings, or crowns, depending on your situation.

  • Brush twice daily, preferably in the morning and before bedtime

  • Wear a sports mouthguard if you participate in contact sports
