What Do I Do in a Dental Emergency?
When dental emergencies arise unexpectedly, the Groovy team is here to help you. Injuries to the face, mouth, and teeth are very common among children. First, you will need to assess whether your child’s injury caused vomiting or loss of consciousness even for a short time. If it did please contact your child’s physician right away. It’s important to remember that head injuries take priority over any mouth or tooth concerns. If your child has a tooth or mouth issue, simply follow these steps for treating common emergencies.
Our team promises to ALWAYS work you into our schedule when an emergency hits during office hours. If you happen to experience an emergency after our regular hours, call us at 501-764-3883 and we will direct you to an on-call dentist.
We recommend routine dental cleanings for several reasons. When we perform a professional cleaning, we remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. We also clean the parts of your child’s teeth that are hard to reach, such as underneath the gums.
After a cleaning, we will polish your child’s teeth so that they shine! We can also apply a fluoride treatment, if necessary, to help prevent tooth decay.request an appointment
Oral Health Exams
We truly believe that regular dental examinations are important in order for your child to have good dental health and a smile of which he or she can be proud. We start by doing a professional cleaning, removing all of the bad tartar and other buildup on your child’s teeth.
We then do an examination, looking to catch and fix any problems before they become bigger ones. We examine each tooth, looking for any signs of decay, damage, or any other problems, such as signs of infection. We want to correct any problems your child may have before they get any worse.request an appointment
This dental process focuses on repairing or restoring damaged or broken teeth. This can include procedures such as fillings with a metal material referred to as amalgam or tooth-colored material; caps also known as stainless steel crowns or ceramic crowns and many other services. These procedures can keep your child’s mouth healthy and fully functioning for years to come.request an appointment
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral treatment doesn’t have to be painful or traumatic for your child. Groovy Smiles offer oral conscious sedation so your child could calmly receive the dental care they need. It safely combines the use of oral medication with nitrous oxide to relax your child while we take care of their oral health.request an appointment
Silver Diamine Fluoride
We believe that fluoride works well to strengthen children’s teeth. It also has been shown to help prevent tooth decay in people of all ages.
For this reason, the American Dental Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Medical Association believe that topical fluoride is necessary for good oral health.
Because of this, you may be wondering if your child needs fluoride treatments. Often water is enhanced with fluoride, so additional fluoride treatments are not necessary.request an appointment
Cavities and Fillings
Dental fillings are used to treat different dental problems like cavities and broken teeth. Teeth are usually filled with a material called composite resin, which is designed to look like natural teeth. Fillings can also be done with gold, porcelain, or silver amalgam.
Composite resin takes a little longer, though most people still prefer it because it creates natural-looking teeth. It takes more than one layer, and a special light is used to harden the area around the filling.request an appointment
Dental sealant is a plastic coating painted on your teeth. It attaches to your child’s teeth, smoothing the rough edges, depressions, and grooves that are typically found on teeth. It gives your child’s teeth a protective coating, helping to prevent tooth decay and cavities.
Sealants are usually done on the back teeth since they are hard to reach and very irregular. Even if your child brushes and flosses properly, he or she may miss some areas. For this reason, sealants are a good way to protect your child’s teeth.request an appointment
