Need a gift that makes Christmas White?
Professional Teeth Whitening can do that in just 30 minutes, or maybe a new sonicare toothbrush, or airflosser. Take one more thing off your list, just stop by the office or pick up a gift card when you are in.
We even package up your gift certificate for you so you have one less present to wrap!
Merry Christmas from Creekwood Dental!

Dental Emergencies can happen at anytime, anywhere so parents be prepared! It could mean the difference between losing or saving your child’s tooth.
Here are some tips for how to handle some common dental emergencies:
- Knocked-out tooth – It is important to retrieve a knocked out tooth, hold it by its crown, and rinse off the root of the tooth if it’s dirty. Do not touch the root; the root is usually darker than the crown. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments. If possible, put the tooth back in its socket. The mouth is usually numb after that kind of trauma, so it will not hurt to put the tooth back into the socket. It is the safest place to transport the tooth, even if the dentist has to remove it and replace it again. If that isn’t possible or the child is too young to keep it there, put the tooth in a container with cold milk or cold water (not contact lens saline solution) and contact our office immediately. If it is after hours call (210) 286-9671.
- Broken tooth – Rinse the child’s mouth with warm water to keep the area clean. Use cold compresses on the area to keep the swelling down and get the child to the dentist’s office quickly. Bring the tooth fragment with you.
- Bitten lip or tongue – Clean the area gently with a cloth and then apply cold compresses to reduce the swelling. If the bleeding doesn’t stop, take your child to a hospital emergency room immediately.
- Objects caught between the teeth – Try to gently remove the object with dental floss and avoid cutting the gums. Do not use a sharp instrument. If you are not successful in removing the object, take the child to the dentist.

Recently Creekwood Dental in Kingwood, TX converted to using digital X-rays, which have several advantages over traditional X-rays. For instance,:
Less Radiation: Digital X-ray provide an 80% reduction in radiation!
More Comfortable for You: Biting the paper tab used in taking traditional X-rays can be uncomfortable and push up against your mouth in awkward ways. Digital X-rays work differently by putting a small sensor in your mouth connected by a thin wire to a computer. X-rays are sent out to the sensor through your teeth to capture the image. The sensor can be moved to take other images.
Quick Developing: Typically they are ready in as short of a time as 3 seconds.
Magnified Images: Digital X-rays are easily displayed at larger sizes. We are even able to magnify the image to show you close up any tooth decay or abnormalities.
Earth Friendly: Digital X-rays are electronic so they save us from needing to use chemicals or film. They also make processing insurance claims faster.
X-rays are an important part of your dental visit, because they help us diagnose problems we can’t see on the surface. Digital X-rays are just one of the many ways we are working to make your visits better.

Dental Health month is just around the corner and this week we have already had CLC (Creative Learning Center Preschool) come for a visit. They were such good helpers who learned all about what it takes to have healthy teeth and that the dentist is a FUN place! My favorite was when some of the children called our office a “toy shop” after we loaded them down with stickers, toys from the treasure tower, and of course a toothbrush, toothpaste, etc…
We love having LITTLE visitors, so feel free to schedule a Happy Visit with your child if they just want to ride in the chair, get a toy, and realize that going to the dentist isn’t scary,
but actually can be FUN!!!
Fun Dental Sites and Activities You and Your Child Can Visit:
Crest Kids – Learn how to get your kids interested in learning about dental health, gum disease and cavities. Includes tips for tykes, parent’s guide, product information, and games.
