Do you see dental emergencies?
Yes. We accept emergencies and never want you to experience pain. Call the office of Dr. Anthony Bartels at (870) 932-9911 if you think you have a dental emergency. Some of the most common emergencies are listed below.
- Broken or lost tooth – Even though children and adults who play sports wear mouthguards, it is still possible for them to break a tooth, or have one knocked out. When this happens, it is important to try and locate the broken or dislodged tooth. If the missing tooth cannot be placed back into the socket, put it in milk or saliva to keep the root from dying and avoid rinsing it since this can remove important tissue. Call us right away.
- Broken filling or crown – Most of the time, if a filling or crown comes loose, it causes severe pain because the root of your tooth may be exposed. Yet, even if you don’t have pain, it is still good to see your dentist as soon as possible and to avoid eating until you do so. Food can get stuck in the exposed tooth and cause more damage and infection.
- Extreme pain – Even if you don’t think your pain is an emergency, we do. Severe decay is the most common cause of tooth pain and will need a follow-up appointment to be repaired, but coming in for an emergency visit will allow us to determine the issue and at least stop the pain until your next appointment.
Do you see children?
We welcome patients of all ages to our Jonesboro, AR dental office. We begin seeing kids at about the age of three. It is important to bring your child to the dentist at a young age for several reasons.
Early dental visits help them get used to the sights and sounds of the dental office. When you bring your child in when they are very young, their appointment is a good opportunity to let them to get used to our team and the dental office environment. We can familiarize them with our treatment rooms, the sound the suction makes, and even take them for a ride in the chair.
Your child benefits from early childhood dental exams and cleanings because we will monitor their health and make sure that they are developing on schedule, as well as checking for common conditions such as dental decay and gum disease. Even very young children are susceptible to both.
When you start your little one at the dentist at a young age, dental care becomes a routine part of their health regimen, making it easier to maintain good oral health as they get older. Once they reach a certain age, we can do an orthodontic evaluation to determine if your little one will need orthodontics.
