How Preventative Care Can Keep You from Experiencing a Dental Emergency

A dental emergency is a situation where immediate action is required in order to prevent the loss of a tooth, stop bleeding, or alleviate severe pain. In short, a dental emergency is not much fun. The good news is that, with proper preventative care, you can greatly reduce your chances of ever experiencing a dental emergency.

Maintaining Strong and Healthy Teeth

How Preventative Care Can Keep You from Experiencing a Dental EmergencyOne of the most common dental emergencies is a fractured tooth. While a fractured tooth can sometimes arise as a result of trauma—such as when playing a contact sport or being involved in an automobile accident—it most often is the result of biting down on hard food with a tooth that is weaker than it should be.

You can help keep your teeth strong enough to avoid most of these kinds of situations. Simple preventative care such as brushing, flossing, and rinsing with a good mouthwash, plus regular dental cleanings and checkup visits, can go a long ways towards keeping your teeth strong and healthy.

Preventative Care is Simple

The great thing about preventative care is that it is so easy to do. It doesn’t involve huge amounts of time, either: most dentists suggest that proper oral hygiene practices will consume a total of around 10 minutes per day. Given the significant benefits from this, there really is no reason to not engage in regular preventative care. What’s more, it will help you avoid the costly—and painful—proposition of having a dental emergency.

With all the benefits of preventative care, there’s really no reason not to do it. Here at Solace Dentistry we can be a part of your regular preventative care regimen. Contact us today to set up a time to come in for a cleaning and checkup. We can’t wait to help you keep your smile healthy and strong!

Improving Confidence with Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening is a relatively recent development in dental services. A few decades ago, if you wanted whiter teeth, you were pretty much stuck with the option of getting veneers. While dental veneers look and perform great, they can also be costly. Fortunately, tooth whitening is now available to everyone at a very affordable price.

Here at Solace Denistry, we work with people like you every day: people whose teeth are healthy but not quite the shade that they want. We can help you get the smile you want with tooth whitening.

Benefits of Tooth Whitening

Improving Confidence with Tooth WhiteningIt has been said that confidence makes up for a multitude of shortcomings. This is true, and the opposite is true as well: if you struggle with confidence issues, you will find it causes a number of problems in other areas of your life.

If you are self-conscious because of the shade of your teeth, tooth whitening is a great way to get that confidence back. It is very affordable, and you can see results in as little as a single treatment. Just come in to our office, relax while we perform the tooth whitening procedure, and then go on about your day.

Tooth Whitening is Easy

It has never been easier to get the smile you want. When you tell us you want to have your teeth whitened, we will fashion a tray that fits your mouth. Then we will apply a specialized whitening compound to the tray, set it in your mouth, and wait.

After a short time, we will remove the tray, let you rinse out your mouth, and let you go on with your day. Depending on the kind of whitening you are having done, we may or may not use a specialized laser to activate special elements in the whitening compound.

At Solace Denistry, we are here for you. Give us a call today!
