    A Guide to Mini Dental Implants

    Last updated 6 days ago

    If you have one or more teeth missing and are exploring the options available for restoring your smile to its previous state, then don't forget to ask your Cleveland dentist about mini dental implants. Unlike standard dental implants, mini implants do not contain screws and are not placed fully into a space during a narrow implant procedure. They also differ based on size, as mini dental implants are half the width of traditional implants, which means your dentist will not have to resort to grafting should the implant fail after insertion.

    As your Cleveland dentist will share, an additional benefit of mini implants is that they are less expensive than standard implants. It's important to note, however, that since their ideal placement is in the front of the mouth, where they replace incisors and other small teeth, they might not be the best solution for your particular type of tooth loss. To find out if mini dental implants are right for you, call Hudec Dental at (216) 661-8888.

    Tips for Handling a Dental Emergency

    Last updated 11 days ago

    From a sports injury to a fall, there are a number of unfortunate situations that can put you at risk for a dental emergency. It's important to visit your dentist in Cleveland as quickly as possible following an accident or injury, in order to prevent further damage to your teeth or gums and to restore your oral health. Here are our top tips for handling a dental emergency:

    Act Quickly with a Knocked-Out Tooth

    A tooth that has completely dislodged from the socket following a fall or a serious injury needs to be handled quickly and efficiently if you want to boost its chances of remaining viable. If your tooth is knocked out, try to put it back into place gently. If it is not able to be placed in the socket, then soak it in a cup of milk or saltwater before rushing to your Cleveland dentist's office.

    Use Cold Therapy in the Event of a Broken Tooth

    If your tooth is not completely knocked out but becomes broken or chipped, then the best step to take after retrieving all of the pieces is to rinse the mouth out and then stop the bleeding. You are likely to feel a significant amount of pain after your tooth is chipped or broken, which you can alleviate with help from a cold compress. Simply apply it around the mouth before seeing your dentist.

    Avoid Using Sharp Items to Retrieve Stuck Objects

    It is incredibly important that you never use a sharp object such as a hair pin, a needle, or a nail file to dislodge an item from between your teeth. As frustrating as it may be to deal with a trapped popcorn kernel or a seed trapped between two teeth, attempting to remove such an item with a sharp object can lead to bleeding and infection. Instead, use dental floss or see your dentist for assistance.

    The dentists and staff here at Hudec Dental can help restore your smile following any major dental emergency. We offer the latest tooth replacement options and will see to it that you feel secure and comfortable through every step of the smile restoration process.

    I needed to reline my teeth with dentures at the age of 55 and it was suggested by most my age that Hudec is the best around. The doctor Mancuso is young and patient with his clients.
