Knocked-Out Teeth Are A Common Dental Emergency

If one of your teeth is knocked out, this is a very time-sensitive dental emergency. If this happens, call us right away at 309-690-4500 and we will advise you of what to do. While waiting, submerge the tooth in milk if possible. Milk contains sugars and proteins and may help keep the tooth alive while you’re on your way to our office. Caution: When placing the tooth in the container of milk, make certain you do not touch the root. Pick up the tooth by the crown. While not every knocked-out tooth will have a happy ending, we’ll do whatever we can.

What Other Dental Problems Count As Emergencies?

Dental emergencies are anything that requires care right away. Some common dental emergencies include:

  • Injury to your jaw
  • A tooth that’s been knocked out
  • Lost filling or crown
  • Painful swelling in your mouth
  • Sudden or severe toothache
  • A broken or cracked tooth

Can I Be Seen After Hours?

When a dental emergency occurs after our regular office hours, you should call your dentist at home or go straight to the nearest emergency room.

What If I Have Not Recently Received Dental Care?

There are many reasons why it’s better not to wait until you have an emergency to start searching for a dentist. If you do not have a dentist and have not been receiving regular dental care, please call us. The first step is to come in for an exam and cleaning. If it’s been some time since you’ve received dental care, it’s very likely that you may require treatment for cavities or other dental problems. Remember, no dental issue improves by being left alone. The sooner you come to see us, the better.

How Do I Know Whether You Accept My Dental Insurance?

Please call us – we are happy to check. Because we work with more than 150 different insurance plans, there is a very good chance we take yours, too.

What If I Don’t Have Dental Insurance?

Not to worry. We see patients with or without insurance. We charge all patients the same regardless of whether they have insurance. If you do require extensive treatments, we will provide you with an estimate that spells out the expected cost and the amount we expect your insurance will cover. These are only estimates. Ultimately, you will be responsible for covering all fees. We charge an 18 percent per year service charge on any balance remaining after 30 days. We do not accept the Illinois Public Aid card or Medicaid.

To make it as convenient as possible to pay your bill, we now offer an online payment option.
