Mouth pain is something many people choose to ignore. They put off dealing with the pain until it is intolerable, or it is convenient to deal with. The truth is, there are some scenarios that warrant a trip to the emergency dentist in the Chicago West Loop or Bloomingdale. If you or a loved one find yourself in any of the following scenarios, schedule a reservation with our professionals at Pure Dental Spa.

Your Tooth Got Knocked Out

Accidents happen, including a tooth getting knocked out. Regardless of how it happened, it is best to visit our emergency dentist in the Chicago West Loop or Bloomingdale as soon as possible. Rinse your mouth out with warm water to get rid of any excess blood and make sure that the missing tooth itself is kept inside of your cheek or in a cup of milk to ensure it is salvaged.

Your Tooth is Cracked

Typically, small chips and cracks can wait until normal business hours, but if your tooth has split open, it is something that should be looked at right away. Use your best judgment on whether or not you need to see an emergency dentist in the Chicago West Loop or Bloomingdale. Should you begin feeling sharp, shooting pain, call our office right away as we are available 24 hours a day.

Your Tooth Split Your Lip

In some scenarios, your tooth could end up going through your lip, causing a lot of pain and discomfort. If this is the case for you, seek medical attention immediately! You don’t want your injury to get worse or to become infected by waiting to see a professional.
You may not think about when to visit an emergency dentist until it is too late. Keep the above tips in mind. Contact our professionals at Pure Dental Spa if you need immediate assistance and take advantage of our $59 emergency dentist special!

Back-to-School Dental Tips

Filed under: Blog,Community — puredental @ 2:35 pm

This year’s back-to-school checklist: a new pair of sneakers, school supplies, sports equipment and a healthy mouth. Make sure you put your best foot forward in every way this school year, including taking the proper steps to make sure your mouth is as healthy as it can be! The American Dental Association notes that a dental examination is just as important as immunizations. Make sure to schedule a reservation with our dentist in the Chicago Loop or Bloomingdale to make sure your teeth are in good shape.
Here are some other ways to ensure your mouth stays healthy this school year.

Brush & Floss

Brushing and flossing your teeth regularly is a major component of oral health. Fluoride toothpaste is especially effective in making sure no cavities develop. Make sure that your child changes his or her toothbrush once every three months or after they are sick.

Eat Healthy Foods

A healthy diet is not only important in growing up to be strong and healthy, but it is important to a healthy mouth. Try to pack lunches full of grains, vegetables, fruits, yogurt and cheese. Encourage cutting out sugary foods and drinks.

Wear a Mouth Guard

If your child is involved in a sport, especially a contact sport, it is important that they have a properly fitted mouth guard from our dentist in the Chicago Loop or Bloomingdale. Mouth guards are also beneficial if your child likes to play roughly on the playground or during gym class.
