Get Rid Of Your Tooth Pain With Root Canal Therapy

September 10, 2014

489085765Having tooth pain is never a comfortable experience, and living with it day to day can be daunting on the heart and mind. Though some people may brush off the pain in their tooth, there can be many underlying issues, some potentially serious, that could cause you to be in pain. It is important to have any sort of dental pain inspected by our doctors, which is why they offer root canal therapy at their Hutchinson, KS dental office.

A root canal could be needed for a couple of reasons. One could be due to a cavity gone wrong, and another could be due to some sort of dental trauma. If you are unaware as to whether or not you require a root canal, some symptoms include a severe toothache, sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages, swelling, and discoloration. Though root canals have gotten a bad reputation over the years, we offer oral sedation to ensure that the entire process of your root canal therapy from beginning to end is as comfortable as possible.

Root canal therapy is a simple process, and is able to alleviate your pain quickly and efficiently. Our doctors will address the infected tooth and remove the bacteria as well as the tooth’s pulp. Once that is done, your tooth will be filled with a bio-compatible substance in order to protect your tooth from future harm. Depending on the severity of your tooth’s infection, a crown may be placed over your tooth for extra protection. If you would like our doctors to help you with your root canal therapy, contact our office today!

If you are ready to set up an appointment with Dr. Grant Ringler, Dr. Melissa Barnhart, or Dr. Justin Barnhart, contact our Hutchinson, KS dental office, and we will be glad to help. We are able to take care of whatever general, cosmetic, or restorative dental need you may have.

Why Wisdom Tooth Extraction? What You Need to Know

May 19, 2014

467995341Millions of years ago, the ancestors of humans possessed large, protruding jaws that were much wider than they are today. The third molars, or wisdom teeth, were crucial tools necessary to chew uncooked meats and tough vegetation. Today, the human jaw is considerable smaller and more narrow, and we no longer have a need for these large molars. At Grant D. Ringler, DDS in Hutchinson, KS, Dr. Ringler and his team offer a variety of services tailored to meet your every oral healthcare need, including wisdom tooth extraction.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Hutchinson, KS

Despite the fact that we don’t need them to survive, wisdom teeth do still develop within the jaw and often become impacted in the limited space allowed them. This can lead to severe pain, crowding of adjacent teeth, and even potentially dangerous infections. In cases of impacted wisdom teeth, our team of dentists recommends wisdom tooth extraction. Wisdom tooth removal should be seriously considered if any of the following symptoms arise:

  • Painful, swollen gums
  • Unexplained bleeding
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Recurring headaches
  • Swelling in the jaw
  • Tenderness
  • An abscess in the gum near the tooth

It is important to remember that not all wisdom tooth concerns come with obvious symptoms. The best way to ensure that you avoid impaction and related complications is to visit our office every six months for a general checkup. We’re always happy to answer any questions you may have about wisdom teeth extraction, as well as the other aspects of your smile and oral health.

Contact our office in Hutchinson, KS today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Grant Ringler, Dr. Melissa Barnhart, or Dr. Justin Barnhart. If you’re currently experiencing pain associated with your wisdom teeth, call us right away to schedule an emergency visit. We look forward to helping you find relief from wisdom teeth discomfort.
