How to Avoid a Dental Emergency

At Dental Care of Waldorf, we understand that you can’t plan for an accident or injury. However, you can avoid most unexpected trips to the dentist by practicing good habits and protecting the health of your smile. Here are some tips:

  • Wear a mouthguard when participating in contact sports or physical activities that can result in an injury to the mouth, lips, or teeth.
  • Avoid foods that are hard or excessively chewy, which may crack or damage your teeth.
  • Never use your teeth to cut or tear things. This can damage your teeth or cut your gums.
  • Don’t chew on pens or pencils.
  • Be sure to practice good at-home dental care and keep up with regularly scheduled checkups.
