Some dental issues are very painful. You might feel uncomfortable pressure or have an intense toothache that makes you desperate for relief. These urgent circumstances may make you think, “Where can I find an emergency dental office near me?” It’s critical that you know who to call or where to go for emergency dental care. Our emergency dentists in East Peoria can calm your symptoms and help you prevent further dental damage.

Where Can I Find an Emergency Dentist?

You shouldn’t suffer when a dental emergency arises. Waiting for a problem to subside on its own could result in complications. If you’re wondering, “Where is emergency dental care near me?” you don’t have to look any further.

Our emergency dentists in East Peoria provide a full range of treatments during office hours. When you call us to schedule an appointment, our skilled dentists will fit you in as soon as possible. Along with diagnosing and resolving your dental condition, our goal is to prevent it from happening again.

Emergency Dental Services: What Are They?

Urgent dental care is any dental treatment that you need to address a chronic toothache, structural damage or other problem immediately. The reason for the emergency is that the problem could become worse or cause permanent damage if you wait to get treatment.

Our emergency dentists offer pain relief and treatments for emergency tooth repair. Take a look below at some of the urgent dental services that we provide during normal business hours:

  • Dental infection treatment
  • Orthodontic pain relief, and displaced wires and broken brackets repair
  • Lost or loose filling or crown restorations
  • Treatment for wisdom tooth pain and minor swelling
  • Emergency repair for chipped, cracked and fractured teeth
  • Emergency tooth removal
  • Treatment for toothaches and other oral pain and pressure from cavities or injuries

When Emergency Dental Treatment Is Necessary

Do you have a dental emergency? With some conditions, it’s hard to know whether you should call an emergency dental office or 911. Look at these examples of emergency dental care that don’t require an emergency room.

Broken or Chipped Teeth

Broken or chipped teeth can result from eating hard foods or trauma to the face. They require emergency treatment as soon as possible to prevent infection and more structural damage. We can schedule such an appointment to address these concerns. Until your appointment, however, any jagged edges on your teeth might cut your tongue or cheek. Use dental wax to cover these edges in the meantime.

Dislodged Teeth

Trauma is often the cause of dislodged teeth. If you get treatment fast enough, emergency dentists can usually reimplant them. In the meantime, gather all of the tooth fragments. Rinse your mouth with warm water, and gently put your teeth back into place. Only hold the teeth by their crowns. Call us for more instructions and to schedule an urgent appointment.

Chronic Toothache Pain or Pressure

There are many causes of chronic toothache pain or pressure that you shouldn’t ignore, especially if you also have an earache, fever or other painful symptoms. Visit our office during normal business hours for emergency tooth pain relief and to treat the cause of your toothache.

Sensitive Teeth

Although slightly sensitive teeth don’t usually require urgent dental care, teeth that become very sensitive very suddenly might be cause for concern. Sometimes a gum infection or tooth fracture is the reason. Call our dental office so that we can get a closer look.

Dental Decay and Cavities

Emergency treatment is necessary for dental decay and cavities because they can leave teeth roots exposed and cause very painful toothaches. Get the treatment that you need to repair the damage and relieve your pain. Our emergency dentists can help.

Infected Teeth

Tooth decay, gum disease, and trauma are some of the problems that can cause an abscessed or infected tooth. The infection can give you a fever, swell your neck glands, give you bad breath, make your teeth sensitive, and cause toothaches. Some people even experience swollen gums as well as sores on or around the gums that drain or stay open. You can develop severe complications if you don’t get emergency treatment, and the dentist might have to perform an emergency tooth extraction.

Loose or Lost Fillings

Loose or lost fillings may be painful or increase the sensitivity of your teeth. This issue also leaves your teeth defenseless against decay and structural damage. Contact us to arrange treatment as soon as you can.

Lost Restorations or Broken Crowns

Lost restorations or broken crowns aren’t only cosmetic problems, they also leave your teeth more susceptible to damage. You can get temporary or permanent protection for your teeth when you visit our office. Our emergency dentists can help keep your smile beautiful.

Orthodontic Injuries or Pain

It’s common for metal braces to cause orthodontic injuries or pain. If you’re experiencing these or other issues, we can ease the symptoms and stabilize your braces to avoid more injuries.

Worn Tooth Enamel from Teeth Grinding

Worn tooth enamel from teeth grinding exposes your teeth to structural damage. Our emergency dentists can reinforce your enamel and give you night guards to prevent damage from bruxism while you sleep.

Sinus Pressure and Tooth Pain

There’s a complex link between sinus pressure and tooth pain. When you have both symptoms, you need to rule out dental causes, such as impacted wisdom teeth and infections. Visit us for a diagnosis.

Handling Dental Issues That Are More Serious

Even after looking at the above list, you might still wonder, “Should I look for emergency dental care near me?” There are a few instances in which you should go to the hospital or call 911 rather than call emergency dentists during normal business hours. These are examples of serious conditions for which you need emergency dental care right away:

  • Large quantities of bleeding
  • Severe swelling of the face or gums
  • Unexpected injuries to the face, head, jaw or teeth

How Much Does an Emergency Dentist Cost?

The amount that you pay for emergency dental services will depend on the types and number of treatments that you need as well as where you receive care. For example, conservative treatment at an emergency dental office will cost less than surgery at a hospital.

You may also be concerned about paying for emergency dental care without insurance. However, we offer several financing options to make it affordable. We also accept most major credit cards. Ask us for more information.

How can I find an emergency dental office near me at night or on the weekend?

Where you go for emergency dental treatment will depend on the severity of your condition and symptoms. If you need immediate assistance over the weekend or after normal business hours, dial 911 or go to the hospital nearest you. Call us during business hours if your condition and symptoms aren’t severe.
