Elmhurst Emergency Dentist Provides Prompt Treatment For Unexpected Dental Issues

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Oct 31, 2023

Sometimes despite our best efforts, dental damage and infections occur without warning. You may experience sudden dental problems due to an accident or trauma—for example a car accident or sports injury. However, in other cases, dental issues simply compound asymptomatically for a period of time, before revealing themselves in full force.

No matter what type of dental emergency you’re faced with, our Elmhurst emergency dentists offer the prompt care you need to get your smile back on track. Keep reading to learn more about some of the treatments that are commonly utilized in emergency dentistry situations.

Dental bonding: this treatment allows our team to repair teeth using custom-shaded composite resin. Once the resin is in place and cured, it bonds to the natural dental structure and blends seamlessly with the surrounding tooth.

Customized dental crowns: when a tooth is fractured, or when infected portions of a tooth need to be removed, our team may recommend that you restore your tooth with a personalized crown. The crowns we use are tooth-colored and durable, so you get the best of both worlds, aesthetics and function.

Restoration and implant repair: one common type of dental emergency occurs when a patient is faced with a damaged restoration or replacement tooth. If your dental bonding becomes compromised our team can likely repair it, while we will replace porcelain restorations and veneers altogether. Dr. Hourigan also provides dental implant repair, so you don’t have to deal with an unattractive and uncomfortable hole in your smile for long.

No matter what kind of dental issue you’re facing, it is crucial that you seek treatment for unexpected dental problems as quickly as possible. Prompt treatment will make life easier for you, and minimize your risk of suffering from long-term oral health complications as a result of a dental emergency.
