An agonizing toothache or other sudden dental emergency can wreck your daily plans and leave you asking your phone for “emergency dental care near me.” Not treating a dental condition can lead to more serious problems. Fortunately, emergency dental care is available when you need it.

Find the Right Emergency Dentist

Don’t let a dental disaster ruin your day. Our skilled and experienced emergency dentists in Woodstock can provide the prompt, professional emergency dental care that you need during regular office hours. Simply call our emergency dental office to schedule your appointment during business hours, and we’ll try to see you in the same day or as soon as possible. The goal of our providers is to quickly diagnose your problem, provide symptom relief and determine if more treatments are needed to prevent a recurrence.

We try to provide dental emergencies with same-day treatment or will offer referrals for immediate care, while after-hours emergencies have their calls directed to Dr. Lee.

Emergency Dental Services Explained

Emergency dental services encompass all treatments and procedures provided for unexpected dental symptoms and accidental injuries that require immediate treatment to relieve pain and other symptoms or to restore function, especially when delaying treatment could cause further damage. Our emergency dentists can provide all of the following urgent dental care services:

  • Emergency treatment for broken, knocked-out, fractured or cracked teeth
  • Treatment for severe toothache or painful pressure caused by tooth decay or trauma
  • Emergency tooth extraction
  • Repair of fractured or cracked teeth
  • Crown and filling restoration
  • Treatment of dental infections
  • Relief from pain and swelling associated with impacted molars
  • Repair of broken orthodontic brackets and wires

How Do I Know if I Need Emergency Dental Treatment?

I’m not certain that my condition requires looking for emergency dental care near me. How can I be sure?

The conditions and symptoms listed below are common reasons why many of our patients obtain emergency dental care.

Broken Teeth and Fractures

If you have a fractured or broken tooth, you’ll need to get treatment quickly to prevent bacterial infections and the further deterioration of the tooth structure. Cover sharp tooth edges with wax, and contact us immediately to make an appointment for treatment.

Knocked-Out Teeth

Our emergency dentists can sometimes save knocked-out teeth and reimplant them if you don’t delay in getting treatment. To increase the chances of saving your tooth, rinse all fragments in warm water, and only hold your tooth by its crown. Try to put the tooth back into its socket. If you can’t, keep it tucked inside your cheek until you can get to our office.

Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure

Many minor and major problems can cause toothaches, so it’s best to seek a diagnosis as soon as you can. Call us immediately if you experience severe tooth pain and associated symptoms such as fever, pressure, and ear or jaw pain.

Tooth Sensitivity

If your teeth are painful or sensitive when exposed to hot or cold, a fracture, damaged filling or dental infection could be to blame. Severe sensitivity of a sudden onset is a problem requiring urgent dental care.

Tooth Decay (Cavities)

When advanced tooth decay exposes the pulp or roots of a tooth, a severe toothache is a common result. If a cavity is causing you pain, visit our emergency dentists to get pain relief and restore the structural integrity of your tooth.

Abscessed Tooth

Abscessed teeth may be related to chronic gum disease, traumatic injuries or advanced tooth decay. An abscess is a serious infection and is always an emergency. Symptoms include: severe tooth pain, open or draining sores on your gums, swelling of your face or gums, fever, a bad taste in your mouth and swollen neck glands. Contact our emergency dental office at once if you have symptoms of an abscessed tooth.

A Lost or Loose Filling

A missing or loose filling can cause pain and sensitivity and put your exposed tooth at increased risk of decay. We can replace and secure the filling easily during office hours.

Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations

Breaking or losing a crown isn’t just about appearances. The exposed and unprotected tooth is in danger of further damage and deterioration. Our emergency dentists will create a temporary or permanent solution to restore your smile.

Orthodontic Pain or Injuries

When brackets break or wires move out of place, your braces can become painful and cause mouth injuries. We can relieve your discomfort and correct any problems with your orthodontic devices to prevent further pain.

Enamel Damage Due to Teeth Grinding

If you grind your teeth at night, your tooth enamel may eventually suffer significant damage. Let us provide strengthening treatments to protect your tooth surfaces, and devices to control nighttime grinding habits.

Sinus Pressure

Sinus pressure may not be due to congestion. If you are experiencing unexplained sinus pressure, we can help rule out any dental causes such as impacted wisdom teeth or hidden infections.

What to Do When the Situation Is Serious

I think I may be suffering from a serious condition. Should I find an emergency dental office near me, or can a hospital provide better treatment?

Although emergency dentists in Woodstock can handle most dental emergencies, some symptoms and injuries are potentially dangerous and require advanced and immediate care. See your doctor, go to an emergency room or call 911 if you experience any of the following:

  • Sudden or severe swelling of your face or gums
  • Bleeding that can’t be controlled
  • Impact injuries to your face, head or jaw area

How Much Does a Dental Emergency Visit Usually Cost?

The cost of getting emergency dental care is different for each patient. The total price will depend on what types of tests, procedures and medications are needed to treat the problem. Our emergency dentists accept many types of dental insurance plans and all major credit cards. If you don’t have insurance, don’t despair. We also offer the DentRite® discount dental plan. It’s not insurance, but it can reduce the cost of emergency treatment and other procedures significantly. Contact our office to learn more about DentRite® savings.

If I have a night or weekend emergency, should I wait until later to visit an emergency dental office near me?

If your symptoms are severe or potentially serious, don’t wait until emergency dentists are in their offices. Call 911 or proceed to a hospital emergency room immediately. However, if you have minor symptoms that are not causing extreme distress, call our office during regular business hours to get an appointment with one of our skilled and compassionate emergency dentists in Woodstock.
