Accidents Happen

We’re Here to Help!

Life is full of surprises, and not all of them are good! Kids can damage their teeth through slips, trips, falls, or by playing sports. When life hands you and your child a dental emergency, we are here when you need us and can give you advice on dental first aid.

Call us at 815-895-7660 during our normal office hours or follow the instructions to reach our emergency service line after-hours if your child experiences a dental emergency.

Your Child’s Safety Is Our Top Priority

We strongly emphasize parent and child education, which includes knowing what to do in the event of a dental emergency. We are always here to assist when your child’s dental health is at risk.

Please call us if anything happens or if you are unsure how to handle an accident involving your child’s teeth or mouth. We are here to help and offer same-day appointments when your child experiences a dental emergency.

Avoiding Injury

You can help your child avoid dental emergencies. Child-proof your house to avoid falls. Don’t let your child chew on ice, popcorn kernels, or other hard foods. Always use car seats for young children and require seat belts for older children.

If your child plays contact sports, have them wear a mouthguard. Ask us about creating a custom-fitted mouthguard for your child. Finally, prevent toothaches with regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups at our office.
