What to do if you have a dental emergency while on vacation

SPONSORED

For many people, the summer season means packing up and getting out of dodge for a while.

What to do if a dental emergency arises while on vacation?

First, make sure to stay calm and carefully assess the situation. Often, injuries to the head and mouth can look more severe than they are and these injuries may bleed very heavily.

If immediate attention is needed, patients from Lake in the Hills, Algonquin, and other nearby towns should contact the Lake in the Hills-based Compassionate Dental Care.

Dr. Stirneman and his staff can walk individuals through any first aid steps they can take, as well as schedule a time for them to come in right away.

“We’re always here to help when our patients need us most,” Stirneman said.

A few of the most common dental emergencies treated by Compassionate Dental Care include a knocked out, chipped, cracked or broken teeth or dental restorations, broken or damaged partial or full dentures, and a severe toothache or gum infection.

Concerned you may need a root canal? Contact Compassionate Dental Care right away. Root canal infection or damage causes severe toothache and sensitivity to changes in temperature that lingers, making simple daily activities such as eating and drinking very uncomfortable.

“It’s essential that we repair the damage as quickly as possible in order to preserve the tooth,” Stirneman said.

He and his team are passionate about offering their patients the highest quality care in complete comfort and happy to treat patients experiencing a dental emergency in order to help get their vacation back. And in most cases, Compassionate Dental Care is able to provide appointments on the same day patients call the office.
