Are You Prepared For A Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies always happen when you least expect them, that’s why they are called emergencies! From playground/sports injuries to an abcessed tooth, they happen everyday. Are you prepared?

Tip #4
If you have broken a tooth, schedule with our office as soon as possible. Sometimes the tooth will start hurting immediately or it could not hurt at all. Regardless, once a tooth has broken, it is in need of treatment. It could just need a filling or maybe a crown. It will depend on how bad it is broken. Do not leave it unattended to long because it is very susceptible to decay.

Tip #3
In case of a tooth being knocked out, try to find the tooth! Stay calm; sometimes finding the tooth can be difficult expecially when you are on a basketball court, playground or football field. Hold the tooth by the large crown area and rinse well with water (don’t try to scrub it). If possible, place tooth into the socket and hold in place otherwise put the tooth in a cup of milk while you are on the way to the office. Time is crucial so call us ASAP.

National Children’s Dental Health Month


This month it’s all about kids and helping them achieve A+ dental health.

As soon as your child has teeth, decay can occur. Baby Bottle Tooth Decay is frequent and prolonged exposure of a baby’s teeth to liquids, such as fruit juice, milk, or formula, which all contain sugar. Babies should finish their naptime/bedtime bottle BEFORE going to bed. Because decay can destroy the teeth of babies, you should encourage your children to drink from a cup by their first birthday.

Celebrating Dental Health Month With Cookies and TIPS!

Dental Health Month Tip:
Anytime you eat or drink anything that is sugary, the bacteria in your mouth feed on these sugars to make acids. These bacterial acids cause the overall pH in your mouth to drop below normal levels and make your tooth enamel “softer” and more vulnerable to abrasion. It takes about 30 minutes with healthy saliva to return your mouth to a neutral pH. Always wait 30 minutes after eating to brush your teeth.

Tip#2 If you have a toothache, first rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area out. Use dental floss to check for food or debris that may be caught between your teeth. If the toothache continues, schedule an appointment with us immediately. When you put a toothache off by taking pain killers eventually they will not take care of the pain. Dr. Morehead will need to examine the tooth and decide what is the best treatment.
