How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

Not all dental emergencies can be prevented, but taking a proactive approach to your oral health can significantly lower the chances of harm to your smile. Keep in mind the following practices:

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day helps minimize the accumulation of plaque, which is a leading cause of painful decay.
  • Scheduling regular visits to our office every six months allows us to identify and address potential oral health concerns before they escalate into emergencies.
  • When engaging in sports activities, wearing a mouthguard provides crucial protection by cushioning the impact of blows to the face. This precautionary measure is vital for protecting your smile from potential injuries.
