Common Dental Emergencies in Sedalia, MO
There are many types of dental emergencies, but the most common ones are:

Persistent Toothache
A persistent toothache may indicate another oral health issue that must be addressed.

Knocked-Out Teeth
When a tooth is knocked out, the nerves, blood vessels and supporting tissues are also damaged. A knocked-out tooth must be repaired immediately to prevent further damage to one's oral health.

Broken or Chipped Teeth
A broken or chipped tooth can be painful and result in further damage, infection, and even tooth loss.

Dental Abscess
A dental abscess must be treated immediately as it can spread the infection to other areas of the mouth and body.

Damaged or Lost Dental Crown, Bridge, Implant, or Other Restoration
A damaged or lost crown can cause pain and result in an uneven bite, placing additional stress on surrounding teeth.

What is a family dentist?
In our Sedalia, MO dental office, we define family dentistry as treatments and services for patients of all ages-even children!

At Tiger Family Dental, our top dentist is skilled in every age group, and he can move between the youngest and oldest patients with ease. He knows what to look for in patients of all ages, and he always takes a preventive approach to your family's dentistry.

Family dentistry has several advantages, including:
  • One dental office for the entire family
  • Your medical records in one location
  • A dentist is better able to anticipate specific inherited traits in your child's dentistry based on the information contained in the records of older family members-perhaps small jaws run in the family or other predispositions to specific dental issues will be present.

Additionally, we simply love treating families and getting to know local residents and their loved ones!

At Tiger Family Dental, we offer comprehensive dentistry, advanced services, and a warm and friendly environment.

Will my treatment hurt?
Dentistry does not need to be a painful experience.
We utilize a powerful topical anesthetic that will make the injection very comfortable. In essence, we are numbing you before we numb you! This gives you double protection against any pain.

Dr. Jon is good at delivering anesthetic without pain. Our patients frequently remark on how gentle he is when it comes to their care. This is an important feature of Tiger Family Dental and the care we provide because we know that the fear of pain can keep people away from the dentist, preventing them from getting the care they need to stay healthy.

We will check in with you periodically after numbing your tooth to make sure you don't feel a thing by the time we begin. Everyone is different, and that is why it is so important to personalize this part of your experience.

During treatment, you may hear sounds or feel a little pressure or vibration, but overall, it should be painless and comfortable!

Don't let dental anxiety keep you from having the dental treatment necessary to keep your smile looking and feeling the best!
