The dental office staff were professional, friendly and proficient. I appreciated getting an appointment as an emergency that same day after a front tooth unexpectedly broke . I was attending my son's graduation from medical school and was in desperate need of getting my smile back . I am deeply grateful to this office for restoring my smile…

Dr Wong and her staff were lifesavers! To have a dental emergency on a Sunday not to mention it was Mother’s day was bad enough, but to have met with such nice and compassionate people was nothing short of a miracle. Dr Wong did a fantastic job, I’m forget grateful.

Common Emergency Dental Procedure Costs Near Chicago

Knocked-Out Tooth – Average Cost: $2,850


Often caused by accidents or sports injuries, knocked-out teeth—also known as avulsed teeth—are a very serious form of dental emergency. If you act fast, an emergency dentist should be able to re-implant the tooth. After the avulsed tooth has been put back in place, it will need to be splinted, and a root canal may also be necessary. In most cases, the cost of treatment for a knocked-out tooth is $3,125.

Cracked or Chipped Tooth – Average Cost: $785


Tooth cracks vary in severity, from mild and invisible craze lines to teeth that are split in half. Aside from the pain, which can be considerable, cracked or chipped teeth can also cause infections or damage your nerves. The type of treatment recommended by your dentist will depend on the location and depth of the crack, and treatment costs usually run to around $785.

Abscessed Tooth – Average Cost: $138


An abscessed tooth can have several dangerous effects on your health, including sepsis, a life-threatening condition. As such, it requires immediate dental attention. Depending upon the severity of your case, your dentist may recommend cutting the abscess open to drain the pus. Root canals may also be recommended, while in some rare cases a tooth extraction may be required. Treatment costs for abscessed teeth in Chicago are around $138.

Lost Filling – Average cost: $154


If a lost filling is causing you significant pain, you should take action and make an appointment with an emergency dentist. In some cases, a lost filling can be easily replaced by your dental practitioner. However, a root canal and crown may be needed if tooth decay or a deep cavity has been exposed. Emergency treatment for a lost filling in Chicago generally costs around $154.

Lost Crown – Average cost: $1,160


Lost crowns can expose your tooth’s nerve-endings, causing problems with eating and drinking and resulting in significant pain. If your crown became loose through decay, your dentist may need to reshape your tooth before the crown can be re-fitted. However, in many cases your dentist should be able to cement the crown back in its original place. Emergency treatment costs for a lost crown are around $1,160.

Broken Braces and Wires – Average cost: $116


Broken braces or loose wires aren’t always an emergency, so if they aren’t causing you any discomfort, there’s no need to make an appointment. However, if you’re experiencing pain because of loose wires or broken braces, you should seek immediate attention. Treatment costs will vary depending on how significant the damage is, but generally the cost of braces repair is around $116.

What Isn't a Dental Emergency?

Are you unsure about what counts as a dental emergency? You’re not alone. Many people have difficulty knowing whether the dental issue they’re experiencing requires a visit to the emergency dentist. Put simply, a dental emergency is something that poses an immediate threat to your health. So, if you need treatment to stop heavy bleeding or save a tooth, it’s probably a dental emergency. Issues that can wait a couple of days before you receive treatment—such as bruxism or mild toothache—shouldn’t be considered dental emergencies.


Emergency Dentist FAQ

How To Handle Dental Emergencies

Broken Tooth


After you’ve booked an appointment with an emergency dentist, there are a couple of ways that you can alleviate the pain of a broken tooth at home. Rinsing with warm salt water can be a great way to reduce soreness and irritation, while ice packs can help to counteract swelling and inflammation around your face. You can also apply cotton roll or gauze to the affected area of your mouth to help stop the wound from bleeding.

Knocked-Out Tooth


It’s crucial to get to an emergency dentist within 30 minutes to one hour of your tooth being knocked out. After you find your tooth, make sure to hold it by the crown (the chewing surface), not by the root. After washing the tooth with milk or water, re-implant your tooth into its socket. If this isn’t possible, you can store the tooth in milk, saliva, or the inside of your mouth.

Bleeding Soft Tissue Injury


Soft tissue is delicate, and injuries can be painful, especially if you’re bleeding heavily. If the bleeding hasn’t stopped after a couple of minutes, it’s best to contact an emergency dentist. Rinsing your mouth out with a saltwater rinse can help to reduce bleeding, while pressing a piece of gauze to the injured area can also be an effective way to reduce bleeding from soft tissue injuries.

Toothaches


Mild toothache doesn’t necessarily mean you need to see an emergency dentist, but severe toothache is a serious issue and requires urgent attention. After you make an appointment, over-the-counter medications can be an effective way to manage pain. Other ways to alleviate symptoms include hot/cold packs, anti-inflammatories, and salt-water rinses.

Lost Filling


Lost fillings can be painful, particularly if your tooth tissue has been exposed. First, you should make a booking with an emergency dentist. Rinsing with warm water, clove oil, and over-the-counter medications can provide immediate pain relief, while dental cement can be used to cover up your crown and protect your exposed nerve-endings.
