Who can I turn to for emergency dental care?

If you need urgent dental care, working with a dentist who can handle emergency dental care situations is of utmost importance! Drs. Steven Shandley, Elizabeth Kane, and Colleen Shandley of Shandley Kane Dental in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, work with patients needing immediate dental solutions, regardless of whether or not they have been previously treated at our office.

What is a dental emergency?

Emergency dentistry focuses on conditions and problems that require the assistance of a dental professional as soon as possible to address the dental issue at hand. Dental emergencies can include any of the following situations:

  • Severe toothache or other oral pain
  • Loose, cracked, or broken tooth/teeth
  • Swelling in the mouth, face, or jaw area
  • Bleeding of the mouth that does not resolve
  • An abscessed tooth or infection in the gums
  • Damaged dental restoration (i.e., dental filling, crowns, bridges)

If you experience any of the above symptoms and need emergency care, do not hesitate to contact the professionals at Shandley Kane Dental right away. Our dentists will be available to provide effective relief for your issue as soon as possible!

Can your office provide emergency dental extractions?

In some situations, patients may need to remove a tooth if it cannot be restored. Our team offers emergency dental extractions when appropriate. However, we will always assess a patient’s unique situation to decide if a more conservative treatment option will preserve the natural tooth, such as root canal therapy. When you visit the office for your emergency needs, we will evaluate you and provide all of the possible treatment options available. If you need extractions, we can perform them at our office in most situations.
