Don’t Let A Dental Emergency Hurt Your Holiday Smile [BLOG]

Hard Time Chewing Thumb Leawood, KS | S & G Family Dentistry, P.A.

Happy holidays, from all of us at S & G Family Dentistry! We hope you’re enjoying all the delights of the season with your family and friends!


We know how important healthy teeth are this time of year. Delicious food is all around you during the holiday season. When you aren’t able to eat them comfortably, it robs you of one of the most enjoyable parts of Christmas and New Year’s celebrations.

Dr. Schopper and all of us here in Leawood, KS want to make sure you don’t have to deal with dental pain or discomfort this year. With our various restorative dentistry services, we can get to the bottom of your pain and treat it quickly and effectively.

Today, we’re talking about some of the possible threats the holidays can pose for your smile and the ways we can fix the problem and help you enjoy a pain-free season with your beautiful smile intact.

What Dental Problem Poses A Threat To Your Holiday Smile?

If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort while chewing, there could be several reasons behind it:

Maybe You Have Tooth Pain Or Sensitivity…

Whether it’s a steaming cup of hot chocolate, or sipping a cold glass of eggnog, tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures can spoil the pleasure of holiday treats. The same is true for toothaches of any sort.

These dental problems could mean a number of things, but commonly, it could be a sign of infection. Dr. Schopper and our team can clean the infected tooth and get it back to its original strength, health, and beauty with root canal treatment and dental crowns.

Maybe You’ve Damaged Or Lost A Tooth…

Since the holidays invite all kinds of opportunities where your teeth are high demand, it’s not uncommon to hurt a tooth this time of year.

You could be enjoying popcorn watching a Christmas movie with your family and bite down on a kernel. You might be enjoying an appetizer plate of chicken wings at your office Christmas party and hurt a tooth biting down on a bone.

The point is, you can break, crack, or chip a tooth, or worse, lose a tooth. Our team at S & G Family Dentistry can help!

We can repair damaged teeth and replace missing teeth with natural-looking dental crowns, dental implants, or even veneers. Whatever your situation, we will do all we can to make sure your teeth are healthy, strong, and protected so you can enjoy yourself.

Maybe Your Dental Restoration Is Failing…

You’ve probably had some kind of restorative dentistry procedure at some point, and most of the time, they will last for many years. But they aren’t indestructible.

Like anything else, they can start to fail. You could be having problems with an old filling or dental crown that’s broken, loose, or fallen out. This could be quite painful and make enjoying Christmas dinner impossible.

Our team in Leawood, KS can repair or replace your dental restoration so your smile looks great and your teeth are ready to work for you this season!

Trust Our Team This Season!

Despite all your careful planning and caution, dental emergencies can still strike at the worst possible time. But you can count on our team at S & G Family Dentistry when it does!

The holidays can be really hard on your teeth. If they aren’t working like they should, or if you’re experiencing any sort of pain or sensitivity, it can mean the difference between holiday joy and a holiday humbug!

Dr. Schopper and our capable team will do all we can to make sure you enjoy all your favorite foods of the season with our restorative dental services. Whether you want to fix your teeth before Christmas dinner, or you injure a tooth during your holiday feast, we will help you get out of pain fast and back to enjoying the season.
