After witnessing a loved one lose a front tooth, Dr. Mia noticed how the loss of a smile led to the loss of confidence. As a dental patient herself, she experienced that same boost in confidence and health.

As a dental professional with a strong educational background, I possess a distinctive combination of compassion and clinical expertise that greatly benefits the Smile Snob team. Having spent eight fulfilling years as a preschool teacher, I have successfully transitioned into the dental field, where I take great pleasure in directly assisting patients on their oral health journeys. Prior to this, I had the opportunity to work in a respiratory clinic, which not only expanded my healthcare knowledge but also reinforced my unwavering dedication to providing exceptional patient care. Now, as I return to New Orleans, I am eagerly looking forward to welcoming both new and familiar faces at Smile Snob.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I’ve knocked out a tooth?

If you've accidentally knocked out a tooth, it's important to act quickly to increase the chances of saving it. First, carefully pick up the tooth by the top (crown) and avoid touching the root. Rinse it gently with warm water to remove any debris, being careful not to scrub or rub it. If possible, try to place the tooth back into its socket without forcing it. If it doesn't go back in easily, store it in a container of cold milk and contact us immediately for guidance and to ensure we are prepared for your visit. Time is of the essence, as the tooth needs to be replaced and splinted within 1-2 hours to avoid further damage.

What should I do if my dental work has fallen out?

If any of your dental work, such as a filling or crown, has fallen out, it's important to take action promptly. Place the dental work in a plastic bag or container and bring it with you to our office. Call us right away to schedule an emergency visit so we can address the issue as soon as possible. Even though it's not a natural tooth, losing dental work can expose vulnerable parts of your mouth to bacteria, leading to infection, decay, or other complications. Don't delay in getting in touch with us to ensure your smile is restored with restorative dental work.

What should I do about a severe toothache?

If you're experiencing a severe toothache that lasts for 2 or more days, it could indicate a tooth infection, which requires immediate attention. Contact us without delay to schedule an appointment. In the meantime, you can manage the pain by applying a cold compress to your cheek, taking over-the-counter pain medication, or using a topical product like Orajel to numb the tooth. However, it's crucial to seek professional dental care to address the underlying cause of the toothache and prevent further complications. Root canal therapy may be necessary to save the tooth.

What should I do about a chipped, broken or cracked tooth?

If you have a chipped, broken, or cracked tooth, it's essential to seek professional dental care as soon as possible. Without a thorough examination, it's difficult to determine the severity of the damage. Leaving such issues untreated can lead to infections and additional complications that could have been prevented. Contact us immediately to schedule an appointment and allow us to assess the extent of the damage. We will provide guidance and recommendations on how to restore and protect your smile, as well as alleviate any dental pain you may be experiencing.

What should I do about a loose tooth?

If you have a loose tooth due to a dental injury, it's crucial to contact us right away to schedule a same-day appointment. Leaving a loose tooth untreated can result in the nerves supporting the tooth dying, leading to its loss. To maintain stability, avoid touching the loose tooth with your tongue or fingers. When you arrive at our office for emergency care, your dentist will attach the loose tooth to the adjacent teeth with a stabilizing splint. This splint will provide support and initiate the healing process, allowing the tooth to reattach itself to your gums. Don't hesitate to reach out for our help – we are here to assist you in preserving your tooth.
