Emergency Dentist Services for Greeley Residents
Don't wait, get the dental care you need ASAP!
Given how delicate your teeth are and how heavily you rely on them, responding properly to dental emergencies is critical. The sooner you obtain the emergency services you need, the easier it is to save your teeth and avoid further complications. Foothills Family Dental is committed to solving dental emergencies as soon as necessary to protect your teeth and preserve your smile.
How to respond if you've lost a tooth
Having a tooth knocked out of your mouth is one of the most severe and shocking dental emergencies. If you experience this, the following steps will raise your chances of a full recovery:
- Pick up the tooth by the crown. Do not touch its roots, as this can damage them and prevent it from being reattached.
- Rinse the tooth gently with whole milk or your saliva. Do not scrub it or apply soap.
- Place the tooth back in its socket, and then bite on gauze or a wet bag of tea to keep it in place. If it won't fit back in, put it in a container surrounded by whole milk or saliva.
- Get to the dentist as quickly as possible.
General, Family & Pediatric Dentistry Services
To keep a healthy mouth and bright smile, you need proper regular cleanings from a qualified and experienced dentist. We take extra measures to ensure that your oral health is as healthy as it can be. At Foothills Family Dental, it's no secret that we treat our patients like family, we take the extra time to effectively communicate with each and every patient. Our team understands that no two mouths are alike which is why we like to talk in-depth with all our patients to discuss their oral health, any treatments needed and preventative maintenance plans to keep their teeth healthy.
Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth. Lastly, prevention also helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.
Through one-on-one consultations and in-depth treatment explanations, our patients are able to better understand the condition of their smiles and select dental care that contributes to their long-term oral health.
Your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:
- Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
- Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
- Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
