In many aspects of life, playing it safe can prevent lots of headaches, and in this case, toothaches as well. As much as we love seeing you, we never like when you are faced with an injury and need to see us immediately. Here are some tips to prevent and avoid dental emergencies.
Avoid Damaging Food
Our first suggestion is that you avoid any food that can damage your teeth. Rock hard candies, or tough shell foods like pistachios are dental disaster causes. They can cause a multitude of ailments to your teeth, not to mention the fact that they are both well known choking hazards as well!
Wear A Mouthguard
If you are the sporty, adrenaline-seeking type? If so, to avoid any dental emergencies, try to wear a mouthguard as often as possible! Any sport or activity that has the potential to come in contact with your mouth, you should make sure you have protection!
See A Dentist
As always, our top tip for avoiding an emergency is to see your dentist! Your dentist can help you prevent a dental disaster by alerting you of any weaknesses that might already exist in your mouth, and give you advice on what you can do to fix those problems.
