Woman experiencing a dental emergency

When a patient from the Streamwood, Illinois area is suffering a dental emergency, chances are they are experiencing one of the following oral issues.

Common Dental Emergencies Include:

Tooth Ache

Begin by meticulously cleaning around the sore tooth. Using warm salt water, rinse the mouth to displace any food trapped between teeth. Do not use aspirin on the aching tooth or on the gum. If you have facial swelling, apply a cold compress to the area. For temporary pain relief, acetaminophen is recommended. If the pain persists for more than a day, please contact us.

Cut or Bitten Tongue, Lip or Cheek

Ice can be applied to any bruised areas. For bleeding, apply firm (but gentle) pressure with sterile gauze or a clean cloth. If the bleeding does not stop with pressure or continues longer than 15 minutes, please go to the nearest emergency room.

Broken Tooth Care in Streamwood IL.

Recover any of the broken tooth fragments. Rinse the area with warm water, and apply a cold compress over the facial area of the injury. Please seek immediate dental attention by calling us at 847-519-1711.

Knocked Out Permanent Tooth

Recover the tooth, making sure to hold it by the crown (top) and not the root. Rinse, but do not clean or handle the tooth more than necessary. Reinsert the tooth into the socket, and hold it in place using a clean piece of gauze or cloth. If the tooth cannot be reinserted, carry it in a cup of milk or water. Time is essential, so call our dental team immediately. For dental emergencies, we can see you immediately.

Possible Broken Jaw 

In the event of a jaw injury, tie the mouth closed with a towel, tie, or handkerchief. Go immediately to the nearest emergency room.

Bleeding After a Baby Tooth Falls Out

Fold a piece of gauze, and place it (tightly) over the bleeding area. Bite down on the gauze for 15 minutes. If the bleeding continues, please call us at 847-519-1711.

I appreciate that Dr. Dienhelt listens to both me and my daughter. She is very good about collaborating with other health care providers and is always open to learning something new.

I am very grateful for a dentist who is willing to incorporate nonconventional methods to achieve overall results and health benefits. We have been seeing Dr. D to straighten our daughter’s teeth and promote facial development naturally without braces, and we are seeing amazing results so far.

My kid feels very comfortable going there and the experience is so “playful” in his eyes that he has nothing to worry when he visits the dentist.
