Tips to Prevent Dental Emergencies

Posted on 3/22/2021 by Mark Bieber
Tips to Prevent Dental EmergenciesWe tend to take our oral health for granted until we experience toothache. Some of the main causes of toothache may include injury, infection, or teeth sensitivity. If you have experienced a dental emergency earlier, you are probably aware of the pain and dread that it brings. At Toomin & Bieber Aesthetic Comprehensive Dentistry, we can help you to prevent such a situation and ensure strong and healthy teeth.

Causes of Dental Emergencies

•  Broken or chipped tooth
•  Loss of tooth filling
•  Dental crown falling off
•  Tooth infection
•  Tooth sensitivity
•  Abscessed gums

How to Prevent Dental Emergencies

Taking preventive measures to avoid tooth decay and gum disease is imperative to avoid pain and other complications. These measures can help keep your teeth intact and protect your tissues from damage. Here are 3 tips you should consider:

Maintain an Oral Hygiene Routine

This is an easy step where all you have to do is incorporate oral hygiene into your daily life. Make sure you brush your teeth for two full minutes, once in the morning and once before going to bed. Floss once a day, and use a mouthwash to get rid of any bacteria inside your mouth.

Avoid Hard Food Items

Steer clear of hard food items, but if you must, be mindful while chewing. Bite carefully and break down your food into smaller pieces. Hard and crunchy goodies may taste great, but they can chip, crack, and break your teeth. Look for other alternatives, such as sugarless gum instead of hard candy.

Go for Regular Dental Checkups

A dental checkup every 6 months is the key to maintaining your oral health. A dentist can detect potential problems early and guide you regarding remedial measures. Timely consultation will help your dentist determine whether or not your at-home care is effective and perform treatments for extra protection, if necessary.

Dental procedures can range from a simple cavity filling to a complex root canal. However, if you ensure good oral habits, you will easily be able to prevent dental emergencies. In case you notice any signs of a dental issue, such as bleeding, swelling, or pain, call us at Toomin & Bieber Aesthetic Comprehensive Dentistry at (818) 748-9998 today for an appointment.
