Dental Services & Treatments
Dental emergencies always choose to arise at the most unexpected and unwanted times.
Need to fix A Dental Emergency?
Dental Emergencies don’t come at the most convenient times (hence, emergency). Whether you’re about to make an important public appearance or approaching a walk down the aisle, you can’t plan for dental emergencies. So what should you do if an emergency arises?
Typical emergency dental cases cannot wait for a scheduled appointment and require immediate dental care. Dental emergencies can vary from the loss of a tooth, loss of a filling, or an extremely uncomfortable and unmanageable tooth pain. These types of cases require urgent contact with your local dentist. Trust Stonegate Dental to help guide you through.
How Can I Avoid A Dental Emergency?
As many patients who have visited the dentist several times before may recognize, brushing and flossing every day will increase your dental health, make dental cleanings easier, and lessen the risk of dental pain and dental emergencies.
Regularly scheduled dental cleanings and oral exams with your dentist will lower the likelihood of a dental emergency. If your dentist recognizes any current problems or risks of future harms to your teeth he or she can identify solutions to fix or monitor before anything gets out of hand.
Despite this amount of care, sometimes, the emergency is unavoidable, like when you lose a tooth from a sports injury. In this case, it’s important to know what you can do.

Protecting Your Teeth During the Spring and Summer
Warm weather, sunshine and sandals— what’s not to love about spring and summer? As we all prepare for months filled with friends, food and hours spent outdoors, it’s important we remember that with new seasons comes new potential risks to our teeth. Everything from summer-inspired food and drinks, to sports and the non-conventional use of our teeth, raise new risks to our teeth that we may not be aware of.
Superfoods For Your Teeth and Oral Health
When we think about the food we eat, we probably don’t think much about what it does for our teeth or oral health. There’s a reason your parents told you to drink milk when you were a kid—and that’s because it’s one of the superfoods for your teeth. Superfoods are exactly what they sound like. They’re foods that are high in nutrients and are generally good for your health and wellbeing. And when it comes to teeth, there are superfoods out there that can do wonders for your oral health. Here’s what they are and what they do!
