My teeth feel great. Do I still need to see the dentist?

November 17th, 2014

Absolutely. Checking in with Dr. David Hennington on a regular basis—usually every six months—is essential to keeping your smile looking its best. At Trade Winds Dental, we are proud to offer a number of preventive procedures to ensure the health of your mouth and the beauty of your smile. Your smile is just as important to us as it is to you!

Another good reason to visit our Georgetown, TX office is to check for hidden issues in your mouth you may not even realize you had. Bacteria, tartar, and cavities are known to form in the hard-to-reach crevices of your mouth and may only be detected through a professional exam. If left untreated, these cavities and decay can get worse, requiring more extensive treatment, and costing you even more time and money down the road. During your routine exam, Dr. David Hennington and our team will also check to make sure your fillings or other dental restorations you may have had are in good shape.

Preventing problems before they start is the key to optimal oral health. If it has been more than six months since your last visit, please contact our Georgetown, TX dental office to schedule your routine checkup! See you soon!

Patient Spotlight: Ary’s Tooth Brush Drive!

November 14th, 2014

AryHawes

Our patients come up with great ideas on a daily basis it seems like, and we wanted to spotlight one on our blog! As part of an activity for her school council, Ary Hawyes would like to encourage her classmates’ participation in a tooth brush drive for our office!

The project she came up with is an easy one – she’s urging her classmates to just send an old, used toothbrush to their school and drop it into the donation box. Trade Winds Dental will then take that old toothbrush that hasn’t been used in a while and turn it into something useful! For each toothbrush donated, $1 will be donated to HopeAlliance of Williamson County to benefit battered women and children in our community.

Ary wants to encourage her class to bring as many toothbrushes as possible – if the entire class participates and brings at least 1 toothbrush per child, they will have an Ice Cream Party with toppings to choose from!

Thank you Ary for helping us to reach our goal of donating 1000 for $1000!

Five Common Reasons for Emergency Care Visits

November 10th, 2014

A dental emergency can strike anywhere, anytime, and without warning. Perhaps you’re playing a game of touch football on Thanksgiving and your brother-in-law decides to up the ante and tackles you, accidentally knocking out your two front teeth. Or maybe you’re on vacation somewhere in the tropics and decide to go deep-sea fishing, but when you’re climbing onto the boat you slip on the dock, fall, and chip three of your teeth. From misplaced fly balls to bagel seeds causing a painful bout of inflammation, there are all kinds of dental emergencies.

Here are the five most common reasons for emergency care visits.

  1. Somehow you’ve managed to knock out a tooth. Whether it’s the result of a sports injury or because of decay, when you lose a tooth, you need emergency dental care. If the tooth is salvageable, then it can be reattached to the socket, but this needs to be done within a one- or two-hour window.
  2. A chipped tooth is the most common dental emergency. Small chips can be caused by food (chicken bones and nuts have sent many people to the dentist); however, it’s usually some sort of accident or injury that more often causes a chip. While you might be embarrassed to walk around with a gaping chip in your front tooth, it is easily fixed with a bond, crown, or veneer.
  3. A broken tooth is more severe than a chipped tooth. When a tooth breaks, it might be due to a small or hidden chip. However, chances are the pain and discomfort will be more severe.
  4. It might seem comical, but getting a piece of food lodged in the wrong place can result in a dental emergency. If something gets stuck deep in a crevice, it can cause pain and inflammation.
  5. The loss of a filling happens more often than you think. When you lose a filling, you need to receive emergency care immediately. If you don’t, you risk further damage to your tooth.

When you injure your teeth or mouth, you need to seek emergency care as soon as possible. In the event of a suspected emergency, don’t wait. Contact Dr. David Hennington immediately.
