Preventive Care

Maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile takes work. It’s important to stick to a good at-home routine of brushing twice a day and flossing daily. But it’s also key to visit the dentist every six months for an exam and cleaning. When you regularly come to our dental office, our team is able to look out for signs of potential problems. When we can catch problems early, we can often provide more conservative treatment and save your smile from needing lots of work down the road.

Restorative Treatments

Could your smile use some work to get back to full health and function? Dr. Marino offers an extensive line-up of restorative dental services to ensure that you have full use of your teeth as well as a beautiful smile.

Dental Emergencies

Let’s face it: dental emergencies rarely happen when you have an appointment the next day. No matter what emergency comes up, our office can help you get your smile healthy again fast. As an emergency dentist serving Lauderhill, we set aside time in our schedule each day to treat dental emergencies, so call us as soon as you can to be seen quickly. In the meantime, here are a few of the most common emergencies we see and how you can treat them until your appointment time.

Severe toothache

Clean the area thoroughly by brushing lightly. Use a saltwater rinse to dislodge any food particles that might be stuck. Use an over-the-counter pain reliever, but never put it directly on the gums or tooth. If there is swelling, apply a cold compress for 15 minutes. If swelling continues or gets severe, go to the emergency room.

Chipped or broken tooth

Rinse dirt and debris from the area, and find and save any tooth pieces you can. If there is swelling, use a cold compress to relieve it; to control excess bleeding, apply pressure by biting down on a clean piece of gauze. Bring the tooth pieces to your appointment so we can do our best to save your natural tooth.

Knocked-out permanent tooth

Pick up the tooth, being careful to only touch the crown (the part that shows above the gumline). Limit handling the tooth to avoid transferring debris or bacteria. Instead, place the tooth in a glass of milk to transport it to our office. Keeping the tooth moist – either by reinserting it or putting it in milk – is essential to saving the tooth, as is getting to our office as soon as possible. See Dr. Marino within the hour for reinsertion.
