Preventing Dental Emergencies
A dental emergency is any case of trauma to your mouth that can cause bleeding or lacerations to the gums. It also includes dislodged or fractured teeth – all which require immediate medical attention. If any of these scenarios are left untreated, they can lead to serious complications. How can you prevent a dental emergency? If you are actively playing sports, you should be wearing a mouthguard to protect your teeth. Another good tip is to avoid eating any hard foods, candies or ice. Biting into one of these things can create pressure and stress on a tooth, leading it to crack which can be very painful. If you have a dental emergency – contact us as soon as possible. If it is outside of our office hours, visit a medical professional at the hospital.
