COVID-19 Update

Pure Dental Health is dedicated to helping our community during this time. We are seeing patients for emergencies BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call our office to schedule your appointment.

We’ve made a decision based on ADA and CDC recommendations to postpone elective procedures for at least one week, however, we are still seeing patients depending on your need.

According to the association, emergency dental care include:

  • Any treatment for pain, swelling or infection
  • Chipped, cracked and broken teeth
  • Loose or displaced restorations

Refrain from coming in if you have:

  • A fever
  • A cough or shortness of breath
  • A history of significant chronic illness
  • A compromised immune system
  • Or if you or a family member:
    • Are considered high-risk
    • Have traveled to a location with a level 3 travel health notice
    • Have traveled in a airplane in the past two weeks
    • Have been previously asked to self-isolate or self-quarantine
    • Have had close contact to an individual diagnosed with the COVID-19 infection

We are also scheduling virtual exams. You can meet with a dentist from your home. This service will allow you to have a virtual exam with your dentist via video call. This service should be available by 3/20/20. When calling, notify our scheduler if you would like to schedule a virtual appointment and they will take your name and number and get back with you with available times once this service is live.

We will be posting updates as we have them.

Article Title:  What your mouth is trying to tell you

Article Review:

Your mouth can say more about you than you ever thought possible.  In this health news article, researchers examine different parts of the mouth and what they can say about your overall health.  Some areas of the body that were taken into review included:

  • The Tongue- if the tongue’s color is pale, then you could have an issue with anemia or iron deficiency).  Iron helps produce energy and hemoglobin.
  • Your Saliva- if you are left with dry mouth, then you can experience more tooth decay, oral yeast infections, and gum disease.
  • Gums- if your gums are puffy, bright red in color, or with small abscesses, then you could be experiencing the first signs of gum disease.

All of these areas of the body are important to take note of so that you always have a pulse on the state of your oral health.  At Pure Dental Health, we always are looking for ways to help you maintain your smile’s health.  We want you to feel happy and confident with how your teeth look and feel, and also have the tools to learn more about your oral health.

To learn more about your oral and general health, do not hesitate to contact Pure Dental Health.  We are here to help you learn how to keep your smile at its best.  Learn more today!
