It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but it’s also one of the most stressful!

That’s why your friends at Kirchner Dental in Jeffersonville, IN want to do all we can to minimize your family’s stress caused by problems with your teeth and gums that threaten your holiday fun.

Save The Holidays From These Dental Emergencies!

So you don’t have to wonder if the problem you’re having qualifies as a dental emergency, we’re listing some of the most common issues we want to treat as soon as possible, and if you’re ever in doubt, don’t hesitate to give us a call!

*Toothaches & Dental Pain*

Too often, patients let themselves suffer unnecessarily because they don’t want to overreact or seem dramatic about their toothache or dental pain.

You should always assume this type of issue is a dental emergency because pain is your body’s built-in warning system that indicates something is wrong. Call us to set up an appointment so we can figure out what that problem is!

*Sore Or Bleeding Gums*

If your gums are red, swollen, tender, or bleeding, that means you will need to work quickly to stop the progression of gum disease. Because it’s the leading cause of tooth loss, you don’t want to waste any time assuming that changes to your gums are no big deal.

We offer comfortable, effective therapy to deeply clean your gums, remove the infection, and restore your periodontal health before it advances any further.

*Damaged Teeth*

Biting down on something the wrong way can break, chip, or crack a tooth.

If you’re in pain as a result, take an over-the-counter pain reliever, and call your Jeffersonville dentist for the earliest available appointment. We’ll work quickly to strengthen and protect your tooth from further damage.

*Knocked-Out Teeth*

It doesn’t take intense or high-risk activity to knock out a tooth.

You could be hit in the mouth just rolling around on the floor with the kids or your dog. You could trip and fall in the kitchen while you’re busy slaving away on holiday dinner.

Regardless, if you lose a tooth, don’t wait to get help!

Call us immediately so we can guide you through the next steps and arrange your emergency appointment.

*Failing Restorations*

An old dental filling or crown will eventually need to be reinforced or replaced. While your routine checkups will show us when it’s time to do something about your prior dental work before disaster strikes, it’s not unheard of for a filling or crown to break, loosen, or fall out in between those visits.

If that happens, call us right away so we can take care of it before bacteria has a chance to make the problem worse.
