Wichita KS dentist describes symptoms that require emergency dental care

East Wichita Dentist is here for you, and not only for regular check-ups, but also for unforeseen conditions or accidents that tend to arise after-hours!

What Is a Dental Emergency?

If it’s an emergency to you, it’s an emergency to East Wichita Dentist. There is no reason to suffer in pain that affects your ability to eat, work, or sleep when we have the tools and knowledge to quickly resolve pain and restore health.

For example, a toothache may be an indicator of a serious infection or it may be sinus problems that produce radiating facial pain. You may hesitate to visit your dentist, assuming that the pain is just your “sinuses acting up again.”

A few clues that your symptoms may require a trip your emergency dental provider in Wichita KS include:
  • Sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweet foods
  • Pain when biting down on foods
  • Lingering pain of 30 seconds or longer after eating or drinking
  • Severe, throbbing toothache
  • Fever
  • Facial swelling
  • Swollen jaw or neck
  • Foul-smelling breath
  • Unpleasant taste in the mouth
The last five conditions listed above are also symptoms of an abscess, a serious infection that can spread to other parts of the body. The other symptoms may indicate the presence of everything from a damaged filling and a cracked tooth to deep decay that affects the soft center of the tooth.

Likewise, an abscess or infection that is affecting how you breathe or swallow warrants immediate medical attention at the ER. Potential trauma to the head, jaw fractures and dislocations, and severe facial cuts should be treated at the hospital.

Don’t delay treatment – prevent dental conditions from becoming worse and feel like yourself again. Call (316) 215-7152 or 316-686-7395 on weekends.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
