How can I avoid dental emergencies?
Most dental problems can be avoided by exercising proper oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing and routine dental visits for professional teeth cleaning and oral examination for early detection of problems and timely treatments.
You should also take simple precautions such as:
- Avoiding bad lifestyle habits like nail biting, chewing on ice, and using your teeth to cut things as the impact may crack of break your teeth and/or restorations
- Avoiding hard foods that may also damage your teeth and/or restorations
- Wearing a mouthguard when participating in recreational activities and sports
When to consider emergency dental treatment
You may require emergency treatment for any dental problem that cannot wait to be dealt with by booking an appointment during normal dental office hours, due to the severe pain, uncontrollable bleeding, discomfort, or risk of further dental or oral damage. It can be caused by accidents, tooth decay, infection, damaged restoration, or injury during sports or slip and fall.
We recommend that you book an appointment or call our office while on your way (for cases that need urgent care) so we can make arrangements to reduce the waiting time, which can vary depending on the day and complexity of required treatment.
