A knocked-out tooth, a sudden severe toothache – these things happen, and if they do, you can’t wait. If you need an emergency dentist in Washington IL, Associates in Dentistry is here to help. While our regular patients receive top priority, we will do our best to take care of anyone with an emergency. With nine dentists in five locations and more than 40 professional and support staff, we’re here to care for you.
A knocked-out tooth is one of the most common and time-sensitive dental emergencies. Call us at 309-690-4500 immediately and submerge the tooth in milk to help preserve it. Touch only the crown – not the root.
Milk contains sugars and proteins that can help keep the tooth alive until you can get to us. We will do everything we can to help you save it.
While this is not a complete list, these are examples of issues that we would consider dental emergencies:
If our office hours are over for the day, please call your dentist at home or go to the emergency room.
While it’s best not to wait until you have an emergency to line up dental care, we understand these things can happen. If you do not have a regular dentist, please call us to set up a regular schedule of exams and cleanings. Sometimes, people who have not had recent dental care may require treatment for cavities or other issues. The sooner these are addressed, the better. There are no dental problems that get better on their own.
