How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in WichitaOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
Even though there are plenty of dentist offices in Wichita, people still aren’t going to the dentist as often as they should. A research done by McKinsey & Company shows that 33% of adults in Kansas haven’t had a dental visit in the last 12 months3. If you want to make sure your teeth stay healthy, you should see a dentist every six months for a regular checkup and cleaning. This will ensure that no cavities form, and even if they do, the dentist will be able to repair them with a simple filling. If you wait longer, chances are the cavity will spread, making the dentist have to perform an expensive and costly procedure, such as a root canal treatment, followed by installing a crown. The key to having healthy teeth, besides good hygiene habits, is in regular visits to the dentist.
According to the American Dental Association, 26% of people that haven’t been to the dentist in the past year said it was because they found the time or location inconvenient4. If you call us, our dental referral specialists will locate a dentist for you that has a time slot available at a time that best suits you. Since our offices are open 24/7, you can even call us in the middle of the night, and we will schedule an appointment for you for the first thing in the morning. We have access to dentists’ appointment books, so we don’t have to wait for the office to open; we can directly schedule an appointment for you.
Things to know before your emergency dentist appointmentPreparing for your emergency dental visit will help minimize anxiety and reduce the overall time you will have to spend at the dentist office.
Many people are afraid of the dentist, and if you are too, you should inform us when scheduling an appointment. Our dental referral specialists can find a dentist for you that specializes in sedation dentistry. Depending on the procedure you need, and how afraid of the dentist you are, the dentist will decide the best type of sedation for you. Sedation through oral medication and laughing gas are used in mild cases of dental anxiety, while IV sedation is used in more severe cases. General anesthesia is rarely used, as it puts you completely to sleep, and is usually used for oral surgery where the tooth is encased by the jawbone.
If you’re suffering from dental anxiety, you should always tell your dentist. This way the dentist can better prepare you for the treatment, by explaining to you each step of the procedure. Knowing what the dentist is doing will make you feel better than not knowing what’s happening. Some dentists have stress relief balls you can hold on to during the procedure. If the dentist doesn’t have one, bring your own, or if your child is going, bring a toy they can squeeze on. If you don’t like the sound of the drill, listen to music on your headphones. Finally, arrive 15 minutes early to the dentist office so you have time to relax and get to know the staff and the surroundings.

In case of a dental emergency, you might think the best course of action is to find a dentist in your vicinity you can go to without an appointment. While it may be true for some emergency cases, mostly it is not. The majority of dentists prefer you schedule an appointment, and will most likely turn you away if it’s not an immediate emergency, such as a tooth abscess or a knocked out tooth, where you should see a dentist in less than one hour if you want to save the tooth. Not every procedure requires the same amount of time, and pricing needs to be determined according to your insurance type, which requires more time to check with the insurance company. Both of these are reasons why dentists need for people to schedule an appointment instead of coming to the office unannounced.
Finding a dentist nowadays is easy with all the apps and websites such as Google or Yelp. The biggest difference between them and our service is that we won’t only locate a dentist for you and give you an address, but we will schedule an appointment for you, regardless of your type of insurance or the kind of procedure you need. We can locate a pediatric or a cosmetic dentist, or one that is in network with your insurance. All you need to do is give us a call and our dental referral specialists will schedule an appointment with an emergency dentist near you.
Top emergency dentist procedures in WichitaLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
Some of the most common dental emergencies in Wichita are a chipped or a cracked tooth, and a broken crown. If a crown breaks or falls out, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the dentist has to install a new one. There’s a chance that the crown can be repaired, and simply cemented back. If the crown fell out, it could mean that the tooth underneath it has a cavity, which makes the crown not perfectly fit it anymore. In that case, the dentist will repair the tooth, and put the crown back onto it. If you need a new crown and want one as soon as possible, we can locate a dentist for you that makes CEREC crowns, which are done on the same day you visit the office.
