Dental emergencies can arise at any time. You may experience a sudden onset of pain, break a tooth, or suffer trauma to the mouth. However, there are certain measures you can take to help reduce your chances of dealing with a dental emergency.
How do I prevent a dental emergency?
Here are some ways to help prevent a dental emergency:
- Maintain regular dental cleanings and checkups.
- Take care of dental concerns when they arise. Don’t ignore problems with your mouth.
- Wear a protective mouthguard if you play sports. This prevents the likelihood of losing a tooth, should you suffer an injury to the face.
- Avoid chewing hard candies, popcorn kernels, and ice, which can break, crack, or chip teeth.
Even with your best efforts, a dental emergency can still happen to anyone. We encourage you to contact our office if you have a dental problem that arises.
