Are you experiencing a dental emergency?
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you in severe pain? Severe pain and bleeding are signs of an emergency.
- Have you lost a tooth? Fast treatment can potentially save a tooth.
- Do you have loose teeth? Adults should never lose teeth. A loose tooth, even without pain, is a serious problem.
- Do you have an infection? An abscess or serious infection in your mouth can be potentially life-threatening, and treatment should not wait. You may notice swelling or knots on your gums or swelling around the face.

Sealants and Fluoride Treatment
Sealants can help preserve a smile for a lifetime! They are cost-effective and helpful to patients –specifically children – in controlling decay in certain areas of the mouth. Dental sealants are plastic coatings that are usually placed on the chewing surface of the permanent back teeth — the molars and premolars — to help protect them from decay.
Flouride is the key to good oral health and by fluoride therapy, the teeth get the minerals that they need. Fluoride works by restoring minerals to tooth surfaces where bacteria may have eroded the enamel.
