Frequently Asked Dental Questions

"When should my child start to see the dentist?"

Your child should see the dentist before they are one year old to check for issues with baby teeth. Early visits also help children to be less anxious when at the dentist. Read more on our blog about the stages of dental care for children.

"How often should we see the dentist?"

You should visit the dentist twice a year for regular exams and cleanings. If you have gum disease, your dentist may wish to see you more often. Regular visits to the dentist help catch problems early to prevent more extensive treatments such as root canals and gum surgery.

"What if I need to reach a dentist in an emergency?"

While our office is open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. we recognize sometimes you experience an after-hours emergency. In those cases, please call us at 316-721-2024.

"What do I do about a cracked tooth?"

If you feel you’ve cracked a tooth let our office know right away. Until you can be seen by the dentist you can use a cold compress on your cheek to reduce swelling, as well as take over-the-counter medications for pain. You should also rinse your mouth with warm water to keep it clean.

"I knocked out a tooth, can it be saved?"

If you have knocked a tooth out, it may be able to be saved. To increase the chances of a successful re-implantation, follow these steps.

  • Get to the dentist. Successful re-implantation is possible only when treatment is performed promptly.
  • Rinse, do not scrub, the tooth to remove dirt or debris.
  • Place the clean tooth in your mouth between your cheek and gum or under your tongue.
  • Do not attempt to replace the tooth back into the socket as this could cause further damage.
  • If it is not possible to store the tooth in the mouth of the injured person, wrap the tooth in a clean cloth or gauze and immerse it in milk.
