Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care refers to the prompt attention Dr. Wegmann and the team at Chicago Family Dental Center offers in emergency dental situations. The team thrives under pressure and is always there to help in the event of an accident or injury to your teeth, gums, or jaw. No matter what you’re dealing with, the team is there to help, answer questions, and oversee your recovery.


What situations call for urgent care?

Here are some of the most common urgent care cases that the experienced team at Chicago Family Dental Center sees:

  • Crowns that have come out
  • Emergency extractions (i.e., a tooth that has become dislodged)
  • Infection
  • Swelling
  • Bleeding gums (often due to injury)
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Broken full or partial dentures

If you’re unsure whether or not your situation calls for urgent care, it’s best to call up the office and speak to one of the helpful staff members.


What should I do in the event of a dental emergency?

Unfortunately, accidents do happen. When a dental emergency occurs, try your best not to panic. Call the office of Chicago Family Dental Center and the staff can direct you on how to best care for your teeth until you’re able to come in for an urgent care appointment.

Don’t go at it alone. The period directly following an accident and before your urgent care appointment can determine whether or not you lose a tooth. The staff can instruct you on how to properly keep the affected area clean, how to relieve the pain, and how to store your dental appliance that broke or fell out.


How quickly can I get in for urgent care?

Luckily, the team at Chicago Family Dental Center makes urgent care a point of emphasis at the practice. They always keep openings in the daily schedule to accommodate you if you’re dealing with a dental emergency.

The office takes same-day, weekend, and evening appointments for urgent care cases. Dr. Wegmann or a team member will first provide you with pain relief if you’re dealing with discomfort, then they get to the root of the problem. In each case, your Chicago Family Dental Center professional will continue to monitor your recovery for at least the next few days and make sure prescribed treatment or your repaired appliance is working out.

If you think your situation calls for urgent care, pick up the phone and call Chicago Family Dental Center right away.
