Headline: Turn to us for emergency dental care
Check out our previous blog post, “Dental Emergency: 6 Reasons You Need Dental Emergency Care,” for more information on dental emergencies, symptoms, treatments, and more. As a quick recap from that post, it’s important to take your oral health seriously, and get treatment quickly for any dental emergency in order to prevent further issues down the line. A few examples of common dental emergencies are:
- Loosing teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Bitter, metallic taste in the mouth
- Bitten tongue, lip, or cheek
- Broken or painful jaw
Here at Thomas L. Anderson and Associates, we take your dental emergencies very seriously and offer same day emergency dental care at our three locations; downtown Kansas City, the Country Club Plaza, and Independence, Missouri. We want to eliminate your pain and get you back to your normal routine as quickly as possible when any dental issue arises.
The Importance of Treating Quickly
Treating oral pain and issues early on is the key to a successful recovery. That’s why we stick to our same day emergency policy, making sure all patients get the quick care they need in time to catch and fix the problem swiftly. Delaying emergency dental care can cause greater oral issues down the line. For example, ignoring ongoing pain in your jaw could cause more intensive treatment down the line, such as a tooth extraction or root canal.
If you’re unsure if your situation or pain level requires immediate, emergency care, please give us a call and we can discuss the best options for your health. No one likes an unnecessary trip, so we will work together to make sure your problem needs immediate attention and get you in our office at your earliest convenience if needed.
Avoid Dental Emergencies
Although we cannot prepare for all situations, there are some precautions you can take to prevent dental emergencies.
- Wear a mouthguard when participating in sports or recreational activities
- Do not use your teeth to open items – use scissors instead
- Avoid chewing on hard food items such as hard candies, popcorn kernels, and ice
At Thomas L. Anderson and Associates, we know that life doesn’t stop just because you experience a dental emergency. That’s why we are passionate offering same day emergency dental care services at each of our offices, making sure your pain is removed as quickly and effectively as possible.
