Emergency Dentistry In Tinley Park

Accidents happen. Even the most conscientious patient can experience tooth damage in the wrong circumstances. Broken teeth, lost crowns, missing teeth can cause a lot of pain and stress.

The expert team of doctors at McGonigle Dental Associates is trained specifically for emergency situations, employing state-of-the-art technology to keep your teeth and gums intact after an injury. Call us for help with emergency dentistry in Tinley Park.

  1. Don’t touch the roots. Always handle the tooth by the crown.
  2. Even though it may be uncomfortable, try placing the tooth back in the socket. If it’s too painful to do so, keep the tooth in your cheek until you arrive at our office.
  3. If, for whatever reason, the tooth cannot be placed in the mouth, preserve the tooth in a container of saliva, milk, or water when no other option is available. Keeping the tooth hydrated is crucial.
  4. Call our office as soon as possible. Don’t delay. The sooner the tooth is reset, the more likely it is to be saved.
  1. Keep the crown clean and safe.
  2. Reinsert the crown if possible using dental cement, which can be found at your local pharmacy. This is just temporary. You still need to make an appointment to see your dentist immediately.
  3. If the crown is lost or can’t be reinserted, you can use dental cement to cover the tooth. This will prevent further damage and pain.
  4. Only use dental cement. Any other type of adhesive may damage the crown.
  5. Apply clove oil and use over-the-counter pain relievers to alleviate discomfort.

Call our Tinley Park Dentist office as soon as possible for an appointment.
