When a dental emergency occurs, many patients don’t realize that they have options for prompt, urgent care, no matter what time or what day it is.

At Ganger Family Dentistry, we are prepared to handle any issue requiring emergency dentistry in Chicago.
Why Should I Get Urgent Dental Care?
If you have a dental emergency, you should never ignore it. This includes an injury, a toothache, or an abscess, among many other things. Ignoring a dental emergency will only lead to worsening conditions and complications that may be rendered irreparable.
Furthermore, not addressing a dental emergency such as a toothache induced by a tooth infection can lead to health complications in other areas of the body. You may have an infection and not even realize it, which is why it is so important to pay attention to any pain you might be experiencing.
How Do I Know If It’s a Dental Emergency?
There are some very obvious ways to know that you are facing a dental emergency, but there are also some other subtle factors to consider. If you can answer ‘yes’ to any of the following questions, call our office immediately.
- Are you bleeding from your gums or your teeth?
- Are you having an extreme toothache?
- Are any of your teeth feeling loose?
- Were you in an accident where you suffered a blow to the mouth or face?
