After years of going to bad dentists Dental Design renewed our faith in dentists. I called about 10 other dentist to get help for my husband and then I called Dental Design, they were the first ones that really cared, Josie was such a big help in setting up the appointment. After going in and the care and concern that DMD Asher Gelman and his team showed my husband was great. My husband and I thank all of you for your help.

Our Emergency Dental Services

When a dental emergency occurs, it is important to address the issue immediately to prevent ongoing damage. In Buffalo Grove and the surrounding area, Dr. Gelman and the Dental Design team provide several emergency dental services, such as:

  • Emergency dental repair—if you’ve experienced a cracked, chipped, broken, loosened, or knocked-out tooth, it is essential to care for it as soon as possible. Scheduling an emergency appointment can help you address your injured tooth before serious issues set in.
  • Gum pain resolution—if your gums are sore, you could be experiencing underlying dental issues that may become more serious over time. Visiting an emergency dentist can help alleviate your pain and address the problems causing you soft tissue pain.
  • Tooth pain resolution—tooth pain is nearly always a sign of decay, infection, or another oral problem. Scheduling an emergency dental visit to pinpoint the cause of your pain allows us to administer proper pain relief and provide a lasting solution for the issue behind your tooth pain.
  • Jaw swelling and pain resolution—a swollen or painful jaw can be a sign of advanced infection or even trauma to your mouth or jaw. A thorough emergency examination and an emergency procedure can reduce swelling, treat pain, and handle the underlying cause.
  • Emergency extraction—a tooth in advanced stages of decay or a tooth that has undergone extensive trauma can be a source of pain and risk other nearby teeth. Extracting the tooth in question can help to relieve your pain and prevent additional damage to other teeth nearby.
  • Crown repair or replacement—if your crown has fallen out, we may be able to reposition it, but it is crucial to do so within 24 to 48 hours to protect the exposed tooth beneath. At Dental Design, we can perform emergency crown replacements to restore your oral health in a timely manner.
  • Filling replacement—missing or loose fillings can often invite further decay or damage to the tooth in question. If you lose a filling, schedule an emergency filling replacement as soon as possible to protect your tooth from damage.
  • Emergency root canal therapy—when a tooth experiences so much damage or decay that the problem has reached the nerve of the tooth or created an abscess, root canal therapy may be necessary. A root canal can help alleviate your pain and preserve your tooth instead of extracting or replacing it.

Depending on the nature of your emergency care, you may require pain-relieving techniques or sedation. Dental Design and Dr. Gelman can work within the standards demanded by the dental industry to ensure you remain comfortable during your emergency procedure.

How Can You Prevent Dental Emergencies?

Emergency dental care is far from the ideal way of handling your dental health. Instead, it is crucial to engage in recommended preventive maintenance to prevent emergencies. Scheduling dental cleanings and examinations every six months allows our dental team to track your oral health so that any changes can be addressed and resolved as soon as possible.

If you participate in high-risk or high-impact activities such as contact sports, additional preventive care is necessary. An excellent first step is to wear a custom-fit dental guard to protect your teeth from impact. These appliances prevent broken and knocked-out teeth in the event of a blow to your face, jaw, or mouth.
