Our Tallmadge emergency dentist at Darrow Dental provides a complete range of restorative, general, cosmetic and implant dentistry. If there is a dental emergency our emergency dentist is available to respond to it. There are several dental traumas that our practice handles. Often an infected tooth and roots are an emergency situation, especially if there is a great deal of pain involved or an abscess has formed. Other emergencies deal with trauma or injury to a tooth.
Often a dental emergency involves traumatic injuries to teeth. As a result of some sort of blow to the mouth or injury teeth may become dislodged, pushed partially out of their socket. Our Tallmadge emergency dentist will re-position the tooth in the socket and stabilize it. If the pulp or root of the tooth is intact the tooth will heal itself. If the pulp is damaged or infected a root canal treatment may be necessary to clean out the damaged pulp. Another emergency injury is when a tooth is completely knocked out or avulsed. If this should happen keep the tooth moist by placing it back in the socket if possible, or if not by placing it in milk or water. Our doctor will treat the tooth and place it back in the socket, the treatment depends on how long it has been detached and the condition it is in.
Another Tallmadge emergency dentist involves teeth that are cracked or fractured. A crack or fracture can occur as a result of a sudden trauma but is usually the result of many years or even decades of clinching and grinding of teeth, which can cause a crack in the hard outer layer of the tooth. These fractures are sometimes very difficult to find and may eventually cause pain, difficulty chewing and thermal sensitivity. Whenever you feel pain or sensitivity in your teeth or experience a trauma to the mouth, we encourage you to call our office.

Ultimately, prevention is always the best strategy, which is why you should see our Tallmadge dentist every six months. A complete examination includes periodic x-rays, and we use digital radiography so that you won’t be exposed to the higher levels of radiation that are typical with traditional x-rays. Detection of cavities in a timely manner means less chance of toothaches, infections, or possible loss of teeth to extraction. And teeth cleanings make future cavities and gum disease less likely, while also reversing the effects of current early stage gum disease. Among our restorations are fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures. Implants are available for optimal results in the replacement of missing teeth. Root canal therapy is done using advanced techniques and equipment to make certain that you have a comfortable experience and the best chance of retaining your tooth. For a more attractive smile, you may want to benefit from cosmetic treatments offered by our Tallmadge dentist, like veneers, bonding, and teeth whitening, done with the state-of-the-art Opalescence method. Yes, we are pleased to have the latest technology for you, among which are CEREC one day crowns and Six Month Smiles. We also offer Invisalign, the invisible braces that do the job of metal braces but without the drawbacks of them.

Dentist in Tallmadge
If you want to improve the look of your smile, you will want to visit us at Darrow Dental for more information about Six Month Smiles. Our dentist in Tallmadge, Dr. Marino, will be able to improve your smile with this exciting, short-term orthodontic treatment.
Our dentist will be able to provide patients with Six Month Smiles as a way of correcting the positioning of front upper and lower teeth. Treatment time with this innovative treatment process takes about six months. However, treatment times can vary from patient to patient and will depend on the type of bite correction that is needed. Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored nickel and titanium wires. This treatment is used to correct the cosmetic appearances of the teeth, and does not make major orthodontic changes to a person’s bite. This treatment is very comfortable for our patients, and is an ideal option for patients who want to have their teeth cosmetically straightened, but who do not need or want involved bite correction. Six Month Smiles can be used by our dentist in Tallmadge to correct: spacing issues; overbites and open bites; crowded and overlapping teeth; and other issues. Our dentist will meet with you and perform an exam of your teeth, gums and oral health to see if you are a good candidate for treatment with this innovative treatment process. This exam is quite involved and will involve x-rays, intraoral photographs, and making impressions of your teeth. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for the procedure, these models will be used by the lab to calculate the precise tooth movement needed, as well as determine where the clear brackets and wires should be placed.

Your smile can say a lot about you and forms the first impression that most people get when meeting you. Unfortunately, the white teeth we are born with dull and yellow over time due to years of eating and drinking. Other factors that can discolor teeth include habits like smoking and taking certain medications. Thankfully, modern dentistry can renew teeth and bring them closer to their natural whiteness. Our Tallmadge dentist at Darrow Dental has a very effective yet inexpensive way to whiten teeth.
Our Tallmadge dentist whitens teeth significantly while letting our patients do the whitening in the convenience of their own homes whenever they have the opportunity. Our dental whitening procedure starts with one visit to our office. During the office visit our doctor will make an impression of your teeth, which will be employed to fabricate form-fitting trays that will be used to hold the bleaching agent snugly against your teeth. When the trays arrive from the lab our doctor will give them to you with a supply of a special professional strength bleaching agent. The patient will use the trays and bleaching agent for two hours a day for about two weeks, depending on how discolored their teeth are. After the two weeks our dentist will compare the color of their teeth to the color before the whitening process started, it will be several shades whiter following the procedure.
The whitening system used by our Tallmadge dentist has several advantages over the whitening kits, strips and toothpastes sold in drugstores. Our whitening agent is stronger than the retail variety and designed to work on tooth surfaces. The major advantage is the custom mouth trays which are designed to keep the whitening agent in contact with every tooth surface for maximum exposure to the agent and an even whitening, this is something that the one-size fits all retail kit trays cannot duplicate. If you want to bring your smile back to its original brightness and make a wonderful impression on everyone your meet just give our office a call.
