If you hurt your tooth, or even lose it, your first instinct may be to panic. This is understandable – on top of causing potentially serious pain, a dental injury can leave your appearance altered in a significant way. Hopefully, you never have to go through this experience, but if you do, you should know that our Prairie Village, KS dentist’s office does provide emergency dental services. Our patients can count on us to promptly respond to dental pain, or a dental injury, in order to fully resolve the matter. In addition to taking care of your discomfort, we are prepared to provide restorative dental work that can bring back the smile you enjoyed before your dental emergency!
Don’t Panic! We Can Make Sure Your Dental Injury Is Addressed
While panic may not be necessary, a dental emergency should be treated with urgency. If an injury leaves you in pain and/or causes visible trauma to affect your smile, a prompt response from your dentist can limit the ultimate harm that you experience. When you come in for treatment, your dentist can respond quickly to provide relief from discomfort, and take action to save or restore your tooth. Even if your tooth cannot be saved, an emergency appointment can ensure that you have a plan in place for prosthetic dental work so that your full smile is regained with minimal delay.
What To Expect At An Emergency Dental Appointment
The exact experience you have during your emergency dental treatment will depend on your condition when you arrive. If a tooth is chipped, cracked, or broken, your dentist may need to provide a root canal procedure to save it from a potential infection. Once this is done, we can make arrangements to restore the tooth with a lifelike dental crown. If your tooth is dislodged and cannot be placed back in position, we can make sure the injury is properly addressed before discussing prosthetic treatment.
We Can Restore Your Smile, Even If You Lose A Tooth
Even if you receive attention promptly, there may not be a way to save your injured or dislodged tooth. Fortunately, modern dental restorations can help you feel better about your bite function and appearance. With a dental implant, a lifelike restoration can be secured without affecting your neighboring teeth. The implant acts as a sort of prosthetic root to deliver stability for your restoration while also creating beneficial stimulation for your jawbone. We can also discuss the placement of a dental bridge to restore your smile with a permanent restoration that does not require oral surgery.
