Dr. Todd Johnson specializes in emergency dental care in Onalaska, WI. You can feel confident visiting Johnson Dental for a variety of dental ailments that need immediate care.

What Are Dental Emergencies?

Dental emergencies are situations that can arise in the blink of an eye. Some of the most common types of dental emergencies are:

  • Loose Teeth- Loose teeth can occur as a result of a variety of dental ailments. They can happen because of periodontal disease, autoimmune diseases, poor dental hygiene, and the like. We specialize in providing emergency dental care in Onalaska, WI, for such problems.  
  • Broken Teeth- Car accidents, altercations, and eating mishaps can cause the teeth to chip and break. We're here to restore such teeth so that you don't have to suffer. 
  • Tooth Infections- Tooth infections can be dangerous and painful. That's why our dentist has a special interest in helping people overcome them. 
  • Mouth Bleeding- Bleeding from the mouth can result from dental diseases, accidental bites, and other emergencies. We're open during convenient hours to assist with such incidents. 
  • Knocked-Out Teeth- You can come to us if you lose a tooth for any reason. We'll do the best we can to get it firmly planted back into its socket. Alternatively, we can provide reliable replacement therapy. 
  • Loss of a Filling- Losing a filling can cause pain and expose your tooth to additional decay. You can visit our office at Johnson Dental right away to get help with such an issue. 

How Can We Help With Dental Emergencies?

We have an array of processes we can use to assist you with your dental emergency. Those processes include:

  • Dental Extractions- In severe cases of decay, we may have to perform an emergency extraction. Our dentist is available to help you in that way if you need relief from the pain of an infection. 
  • Root Canal Therapy- Root canal therapy is a second option that's available to you if you would like to salvage your tooth. In this procedure, the dentist will clean the area of the diseased pulp and replace it with a filler substance. You will then have a crown placed on top of the site to make it stronger. 
  • Medication- Our dentist can provide you with the medication you might need to prevent infection or alleviate your pain. 
  • Bonding- We might be able to bond something to your teeth to cover sensitive areas or areas susceptible to infection. Don't hesitate to communicate with our office to see how we might be able to help you. It's vital that you try to get assistance for your issue right away.

How your family dentist in Onalaska, WI, can help you and your family.

The main difference between a family dentist and a general dentist is that a family dentist can take care of all dental needs during all stages of a person’s life. A family dentist provides dental services to all family members, no matter what their ages are.

Dr. Todd Johnson at Johnson Dental in Onalaska, WI, offers a wide range of family dentistry services, to take care of your family’s smiles.

There are many benefits to having a family dentist, including:

Time savings, because your family dentist may be able to see multiple family members on the same day. That means you won’t have to take as much time off of work or school for dental treatment. You also won’t have to “shop around” for dental specialty services like pediatric dentistry, endodontics, or periodontal therapy. Your family dentist does it all.

Cost savings, because your family dentist can help you budget for the dental needs of all of your family members, so there are no surprises. Your family dentist can treat dental issues while they are still small, before they can grow into large, expensive dental problems.

Stress reduction, because if you or a family member has a dental emergency, you can be confident knowing you have dental services available whenever you need them. You will feel better knowing you are seeing someone you know and trust, in surroundings that are familiar.

This is just a small sample of the services your family dentist can provide:

For young children, preventive dental exams, x-rays, dental cleanings, and fluoride treatments

For older children and teens, preventive dental exams, x-rays, dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and orthodontics

For adults and seniors, dental exams, x-rays, dental cleanings, periodontal therapy, dental fillings, crowns, bridges, dental implants, dental appliances, root canal treatment and more

Cosmetic dentistry services are also an important part of family dental care. Common cosmetic dentistry procedures include professional teeth whitening, dental bonding, cosmetic fillings, and porcelain veneers
