The Importance of

same-day emergency care

At Lake Bluff Dental, we offer same-day emergency appointments to all patients. We will always do our best to get you the care you need immediately. You can get treatment as a walk-in at our office in Shorewood, but we ask that you call ahead at (414) 962-1800 to tell us about your condition, if possible. This will help us schedule you at the appropriate time, and provide you with the care that’s right for your situation.

Same-day emergency care is important for a number of different reasons. First, it gets you relief from your pain and discomfort. A broken tooth or a serious toothache can be excruciatingly painful, and interfere with your ability to live your day-to-day life.

Immediate, same-day care also helps you avoid further complications. For example, repairing a broken tooth with a dental crown right away may allow you to avoid root canal therapy. This, in turn, saves you quite a bit of time and money.


Dental emergencies

what is a dental emergency? 

At Lake Bluff Dental, our rule of thumb is simple. If you think that your condition counts as a dental emergency, you’re probably right. 

If you’re experiencing a lot of oral pain and discomfort or your mouth is bleeding and you’re not sure what to do, you’re likely experiencing an emergency. Make sure to call us right away at (414) 962-1800 to speak to our team right away, and schedule the emergency care you need to restore your oral health.

Common Dental emergencies

There are a lot of different things that count as dental emergencies, but here are a few of the most common problems that may require immediate dental care.

  • Oral trauma – If you have a loose, knocked-out, or broken tooth due to oral trauma, or you have serious cuts and lacerations to your oral tissue that won’t stop bleeding, you should definitely seek emergency dental care immediately.
  • Toothaches – A prolonged, serious toothache that lasts for a day or longer may indicate an infected tooth, which must be treated right away with a root canal to protect and preserve your tooth.
  • Bleeding gums – Severe bleeding from your gums could indicate an advanced case of gum disease, which demands immediate periodontal care. Getting help right away is essential for halting the progression of the disease and protecting your oral health.
  • Damaged dental work – If you have a damaged, missing, or pulled-out piece of dental work like a crown or filling, you need to schedule an appointment to have your dental work repaired or replaced right away.
