Emergency Dentistry - Chicago, IL
Urgent Dental Care
Can Save Your Smile
Trusted and Compassionate
Emergency Dental Care
In 2021, nearly 50,000 people visited U.S. hospital emergency rooms for dental injuries. Although ER physicians are skilled at treating medical emergencies, they’re not familiar with dental care and don’t have the training to restore damaged teeth. For example, if you visit an ER for a severe toothache, you’ll receive a pain reliever but the ER staff won’t be able to accurately diagnose or treat the underlying cause of your pain. Even if you visit the ER, you‘ll likely need to schedule an urgent dental care follow-up appointment. When a damaged or infected tooth is left untreated, this increases the risk of the infection spreading. Seeking prompt care from an experienced emergency dentist near you in Chicago, IL will save you extra pain, time and money. If you’re experiencing tooth pain, have a fractured or knocked out tooth or any other painful dental symptoms, we recommend you contact Brighter Smile as soon as possible.

If you were in an accident, you may have also incurred medical injuries, such as a concussion or facial laceration. If you’re experiencing neck/head pain or severe trauma, are bleeding uncontrollably or feeling dizzy, it’s important to seek immediate medical attention by calling 911 so you can be assessed and/or transported to the nearest medical facility. ER or immediate care medical personnel are best equipped to treat these types of medical emergencies.
