Dental problems can affect anyone at any age, whether you’re getting up there in years or you need a dentist for your kids. Dr. Drake has experience helping thousands of patients with any dental problem.

Sometimes, when our mouth begins to hurt, we can get worried about what is causing the pain — and this worry can over-inflate the problem. Strange as it may seem to some, Dr. Drake has seen patients put off a visit for months or years because they were worried that the pain would be too difficult to handle. Of course, when a patient delays getting a problem checked out, it can cause the problem to degrade further.

We know that it can be uncomfortable and scary to confront going to the dentist office to get something checked out. However, it’s important to at least know what is going on — just the peace of mind from knowing what is causing the issue can be worth the visit.

Dr. Drake works with patients to ensure they understand what is happening and what the remedy is so that they can become fully comfortable with the procedure before beginning. You can trust him and his staff to do a comforting and professional job to get your mouth out of pain and back in a better state of health.

Even if you know you’ve delayed a visit for too long, it’s never too late to see Dr. Drake. He won’t scold you or judge you for not coming in sooner — in fact, he’ll simply be happy that you made it in!

While we’ve discussed some common dental problems and solutions on this website, don’t hesitate to call the office at (913)721-1300 to tell us what trouble you are having specifically. One of our staff at our family dentistry office would be happy to discuss your symptoms and recommend a course of action.

In some circumstances, it may not be possible to do a proper cleaning on the first visit. There are certain oral conditions that make cleaning ineffective. If the staff discover this is the case for you, you will be provided with a voucher for a complimentary cleaning once the oral condition has been repaired.
