Emergency Dentist Services for Wellington 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.
You need immediate attention if you've experienced the following:
- Bleeding: Large amounts of blood coming from your teeth indicate that they or the roots and gums beneath them have been seriously harmed. If your teeth start to bleed, place a wet, cold compress next to them and call us immediately.
- Swelling: As with bleeding, swelling around your teeth indicates that there is some serious dental problem that may not otherwise be visible yet. You should take the same precautions.
- Severe Pain: Any amount of dental pain is a bad sign, but especially severe pain indicates that time is of the essence. If the pain is serious enough that you cannot concentrate or it persists for long periods of time, you should seek immediate attention from a dentist.
- Physical Damage: If a tooth is chipped, broken, or knocked out entirely, you need to act quickly. Recover the bits of tooth that have fallen out and get to a dentist as soon as you can.
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.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
In addition to comprehensive cleanings and preventive care for all of our patients, Foothills Family Dental offers several specialty procedures tailored to help patients enhance their natural smiles.
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.
