Dental Equipment Dental Pain Leawood Dental 133There are two things you can count on when it comes to dental emergencies:

  1. They will never happen at a convenient time, and
  2. They may make you feel anxious, frightened, or overwhelmed.

The good news is that with a team like Dental 133 on your side, you can rest assured youíre in good hands when it comes to emergency care. Dr. Engelmann and our team understand how you feel, and we strive to work in any patients experiencing tooth pain or trauma the same day. Often, we are able to perform definitive treatment that will get you comfortable again and save you from an additional appointment.

Understanding how to handle an emergency situation may also make you less anxious when the time comes. The important thing to remember is to contact our office right away.

Here are some tips for handling common dental emergencies.

Soft Tissue Injuries

When your cheeks, gums, or lips have been injured, the first thing to do is stop the bleeding. With soft tissue injuries, especially in children, the mouth may bleed a lot, even if the injury is small. Use a cold compress and light pressure to accomplish this.

Once the bleeding is controlled, contact Dental 133 for further instructions.

A Broken, Chipped, or Dislodged Tooth

If your tooth is chipped or broken, gather as many pieces as you can and bring them to Dr. Engelmann as soon as possible. There are many options for repairing chipped tooth such as a dental crown, bonding, or a veneer, and weíll assess which one might be right for you.

For a tooth thatís been knocked out, time is of the essence. Carefully transport your tooth to our office immediately. We have the best chance of preserving your tooth within the first hour of your injury or accident. Try to replace the tooth back in its socket if possible. If not, transport it in a cup of milk in order to keep the cells moist and alive.Dental Pain Leawood Dental 133

Dental Pain or Infection

If your tooth becomes injured, fractured, or decayed, you may experience a dental infection. This not only causes severe pain, it compromises the integrity of your tooth. Please donít wait for the infection to go away on its own, as it can actually spread to other critical areas of your body and eventually lead to tooth loss.

Contacting our office right away gives Dr. Engelmann the opportunity to diagnose your condition, help you feel comfortable, and get you back on the path to wellness as soon as possible. Root canal therapy may be able to preserve your tooth if you act quickly.

Please donít hesitate to call us if you are experiencing dental pain.
