Emergency Dental Care in Springfield for Your Family

Close up of cosmetic dentistry patients smile near 62702With proper preventive dental care like daily brushing and flossing along with routine dental exams and cleanings, we can go a far way to preventing and treating future dental emergencies. However, most Americans will experience one dental emergency in their life, and if this happens to you, Dr. Ruggless and his dental team are here for you.

Dental emergencies can be stressful and painful; we want our Springfield patients to know they have a team they can trust that will turn the situation around.

It doesn’t matter if you are brand new to us, or are an existing patient, a dental emergency needs immediate treatment. Infections, abscesses, broken or knocked-out teeth all need to be treated promptly, so we have the best chance of saving your tooth.

If you are undergoing tooth pain, don’t ignore it or treat it as an annoyance. Dental pain is almost always a red flag that your body is waving to let you know that a deep-seated problem is underway, and it will get worse over time.

The longer an oral health problem is left on its own, the more costly and complicated the treatment plan will be. It’s better to nip it in the bud before things become urgent.

If you have a dental emergency, call your emergency dentist in Springfield, IL at (217) 787-0212 right away so we can get you back to your scheduled program!
