Tooth Knocked Out? Dental Implants in Blue Ash

emergency dental Cincinnati

It seems like a catastrophe when it happens, but having a tooth knocked out doesn’t always mean you’ll wind up with a gap in your smile. If you can keep a cool head and remember a few simple instructions, chances are your tooth can be salvaged. And if worse comes to worst, there are dental implants in Blue Ash and other Cincinnati suburbs.

If you have a tooth knocked out, the critical thing to remember is to find it, handle it carefully, and keep it in the best condition possible. Meanwhile, make a beeline to the emergency dentist.

Do not handle the tooth by the root, only the crown. It’s okay to gently rinse the tooth in water, but don’t scrub it or remove any tissue fragments.

If possible, place the tooth gently back in the socket. This is the best place for it. Holding it between the lip and gum or under the tongue is good, too; just be careful not to swallow. (Don’t laugh – it happens!) If neither of these is an option, place the tooth in a cup of milk.

Most teeth that can be reinserted by a dentist within an hour can be saved. If you get much beyond that, the odds go down. If you end up losing the tooth, a dental implant may be for you. An implant is a titanium post inserted directly into the jaw. An artificial tooth is fitted on top of it. Of course, you’d rather not have it knocked out, but implants have the look and function of a real tooth.

Endres Gateway Dentistry provides dental implants to people in Blue Ash and the surrounding area. We also provide cosmetic and family dentistry. Call our Cincinnati office to schedule an appointment.

Professional Teeth Whitening In Cincinnati

Professional Teeth Whitening at Endres Gateway Dentistry A dazzling smile leaves a lasting impression. Professional whitening of teeth can dramatically improve your overall appearance and give you a boost in self-confidence.

Our teeth often turn yellow or gray as we age. The things we eat and drink continually such as colored sodas, coffee and red wine contribute to the staining. Most of us are aware that smoking is not only bad for our lungs, but can also discolor our teeth. There are even some medications that can affect tooth color.

If you are considering having your teeth whitened, you must first decide which method to use. At Endres Gateway Dentistry, we enjoy discussing treatment options with our patients. To schedule a consultation to talk about teeth whitening or any other dental procedure, call 513-914-4918.

At-home whitening treatments usually consist of trays filled with whitening solution. It generally takes 7-14 days to achieve 3-6 shades lighter. Brush-on teeth gels and whitening strips take up to 30 days to achieve results. Whitening toothpaste may lighten superficial stains but often provides no change in appearance of teeth.

Professional teeth whitening procedures performed by a dental professional achieve dramatic results that can last longer than other treatments.

All of the whitening methods may cause tooth pain or sensitivity, but this usually goes away in a few days. If you have crowns, porcelain veneers or dental bonding, it is important to talk to your dentist before choosing a whitening method.

Peace Of Mind At Endres Gateway Dentistry

At Endres Gateway Dentistry, we make a conscious effort to help our patients feel comfortable. Though our chairs are cushy as can be, we are not talking about physical comfort here. We are talking about emotional comfort. In other words, peace of mind.

Here are four ways we are devoted to your peace of mind at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati:

1. We don’t judge you. Dr.  Eleanor Endres has devoted a professional career to promoting oral health and creating beautiful smiles.

The courteous dental team at Endres Gateway Dentistry is here to help you, regardless of the state of your teeth. We have treated patients with severe tooth neglect, advanced gum disease, enamel erosion caused by eating disorders, tooth damage caused by illegal drug use, baby bottle tooth decay, tobacco-stained teeth: basically, every imaginable dental trouble. We don’t live in a bubble. We understand and empathize with our patients.

2. We protect you from pain. From topical analgesics to oral conscious sedation, we will eliminate or minimize pain as best we can. Doctor Endres is a pro at administering barely noticeable injections.

3. We help you with your dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist is far more common than you might realize and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. The perceived loss of control, instruments poking in your mouth, and teeth being worked on is not pleasant. Some patients get claustrophobic because they need to lie still in the chair for treatment.

Sleep dentistry (oral conscious sedation) not only aids in pain management, it allows you to sleep through your appointment. There are different levels of sedation, so you don’t have to be completely unconscious unless you want to be. If you would like more specifics about sedation, call 513-914-4918 to schedule a consultation. We can highlight the different levels of oral conscious sedation so you can elect the one that is best for you.

4. We communicate with you.
 Dr. Endres has established a reputation as an effective and compassionate communicator. Procedures are thoroughly explained and all your critical questions will be answered prior to treatment. If you are not sure you want to initiate treatment, we are happy to let you think about it for a while. There is no rush.

If you have postponed dental treatment for any reason, we encourage you to give Dr. Endres and the team at Endres Gateway Dentistry a try. Neglecting your oral health has serious consequences. Call today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to meeting you.
