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.

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.
