Your Smiles Elevated journey begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth and gums. Using a co-diagnostic model, together we create a customized treatment plan to meet your unique goals and needs. Your examination will include low radiation digital x-rays, intraoral pictures, and a complimentary oral cancer screening. We will then gently break up plaque and tartar below your gums. Our visit will culminate with a customized home care routine designed with your mouth in mind to help you maintain your smile between visits.

If you are having a dental emergency, please call our office and we will do our best to shift our schedule to get you out of pain STAT. During your visit, we will complete a 15-30 minute clinical examination and take an X-ray of the affected area to properly evaluate your issue. We will then be able to provide you with a clear plan of what needs to be done to have you feeling comfortable again.
Dental abscess is a dental emergency and needs to be treated immediately as dental swelling may spread and become dangerous if not treated properly.
Dental trauma involving a lost tooth is a dental emergency! If your permanent tooth falls out of your mouth due to injury, hold the tooth by the chewing surface and gently dip it in a bowl of warm water. Do not hold the tooth under running water, which damages the root. Do not wash with soap or clear debris with a cloth or your finger. Do not dry or wrap the tooth with a cloth. If your gums are bleeding, rinse your mouth with warm water. If the root is still intact, try to replace it in the socket, holding it by the crown, in the appropriate orientation as soon as possible. If you can replace the tooth within 30 minutes, research shows a much higher percentage of keeping your original tooth! If you are not able to do this, you can also store the tooth in saliva (like in your cheek), or milk. You should not wait over two hours to be seen by a dental professional so call us as soon as possible.
If your gums begin to bleed spontaneously despite the fact that you have routine cleanings and checkups, this is an emergency. Please visit your medical doctor as soon as possible to assess your health status, and advise our team. Bleeding gums may be a symptom of more serious health conditions.
If you are experiencing severe pain, please call us right away. If you are not in pain but have observed that a piece of your tooth or filling may be broken, this is not an emergency. However, we will do our best to schedule you at our earliest opening.
