Murray Family Dentistry

Murray UT Family Dentistry Your Murray child’s dental health is essential to overall health and vitality. At Salt Lake Dental Care, our Murray family dentist loves working with you and your child to ensure a healthy smile for life. Why? The health of your Murray child’s teeth and gums can affect their speech development, eating habits and self-esteem.

Salt Lake City pediatric dental care is critical, and that is why we recommend bringing your Murray child in for a first exam before age one, or when their first tooth erupts. During the initial visit, we can discuss Murray UT dental treatments such as sealants, fluoride treatments, brushing and flossing techniques and Utah orthodontics.

Salt Lake City children’s dentists also counsel parents about thumb-sucking, pacifier use and other habits that affect your child’s Murray pediatric dental health. We can also help you keep your child’s teeth protected during sporting activities. Call us immediately at 801-938-8855 if your child has a dental emergency or Sandy tooth injury.

Our caring staff will make your child feel comfortable during their Murray dental visit.

In additional to offering experienced Murray kid’s dentistry, we are also a full-service Utah dental clinic. We offer advice and care on porcelain veneers, tooth implants, teeth whitening, tooth bonding, and restorative dentistry for residents of Sandy, Salt Lake City, and Murray UT.

We hope to be your Murray children’s dentist consultant.

Tooth Knocked Out? Call Salt Lake Dental Care ASAP!

Call Your Salt Lake City Dentist With Any Dental Emergency

It may sound like a catastrophe to many Salt Lake City area dental patients, but having a tooth knocked out doesn’t always mean you’ll need cosmetic dentistry to fix your smile. If you can keep a cool head and remember a few simple instructions, chances are your tooth can be salvaged.

The most important things for Murray UT residents to do if they’ve had a tooth knocked out is to find the tooth, handle it carefully and keep it in the best condition possible so their Salt Lake City dentist can reinsert it properly.

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

If it is possible, the best place for the tooth to be held is back in the socket (placed there gently, of course). Holding the tooth between the lip and gum or under the tongue is good too, just be careful not to swallow. If neither of these is an option, place the tooth in a cup of milk.

Next, you’ll want to get to your Murray UT, Salt Lake City, or Sandy dentist as soon as possible. Most teeth that can be reinserted by a dentist within an hour can be saved.

Healthy Smiles For Murray UT Kids

Family Dentistry For Murray UT Kids

Hello Utah! Today’s Salt Lake Dental Care blog is for new Murray UT, Salt Lake City, and Sandy UT area parents. We know that your child’s health and safety is your top priority. That’s why you baby-proof your home, serve healthy foods, and buckle them tightly in their car seat before you pull out of your driveway.

I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood. I want to remind Murray UT parents that oral health is an intrinsic component of overall health. Teeth and gum condition can affect speech development, nutrition, and self-confidence. From birth, there are important things parents can do to promote healthy teeth – even before your son’s or daughter’s first tooth erupts.

At Salt Lake Dental Care, we maintain a kid-friendly environment so our youngest patients look forward to family dentistry check-ups and never develop the fear of dentists that was more common in generations past. I love working with you and your child to ensure a healthy smile for life and I can assure you that my high-quality staff will help your child have a positive experience.

We recommend bringing your child in for a first exam before age one, or when their first tooth erupts. During the visit, we can discuss pediatric dental issues such as fluoride treatments, brushing and flossing techniques, clear braces, and dental sealants. Dental sealants are composed of a plastic material that is applied to children’s teeth. The sealants bond to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, mainly in the pits and fissures and protects the enamel against acids and plaque.

Murray UT children’s dentists also advise parents about pacifier use, thumb-sucking and other habits that can affect your child’s tooth development and oral health. Remember to call us immediately at 801-938-8855 if your child (or any member of your family) experiences a tooth injury or dental emergency.
