When should I visit the dentist?
At Houston smiledocs, our knowledgeable dentists recommend that you visit our office at least once every six months for a routine exam and cleaning. During these cleanings, we will inspect your smile for signs of potential problems. Depending on what we discover during this examination, we may recommend that you visit us more frequently until your smile is at its optimal health.
How should I react to a dental emergency?
For all of these emergencies, we recommend that you contact and visit our practice immediately:
- If your tooth is knocked out, our friendly dentists, Drs. Farmer and Farmer, recommend that you rinse the tooth with water and place the tooth in a cup of milk. Then, come to see the dentist immediately.
- If you break a tooth, we recommend that you rinse your mouth and reduce the swelling using a cold compact.
- If you have bitten your tongue, use a cloth to apply a cold compress.
- If you have damaged your jaw, immediately visit your dentist or doctor and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling.
If you have experienced a dental emergency in Houston, Texas, we urge you to contact us immediately. We are happy to help you preserve and protect your smile.
