Prevent a Dental Emergency

Inevitably, accidents happen that result in dental trauma. However, there are steps you can take to avoid a preventable dental emergency. If you or a family member participate in sports or other athletic activities, always wear a customized mouth guard. This shield will protect not only your teeth but your entire mouth from injury. Patients who clench or grind their teeth at night should wear a nightguard to prevent serious damage.

Other ways to protect your oral health include:

  • Do not chew on hard objects like ice or pencils
  • Do not use your teeth as tools to hold objects
  • Do not use teeth to tear or cut materials like scissors

These are easy ways to avoid common dental emergencies.
