Preventing a Dental Emergency
When it comes to dental emergencies, prevention is the best treatment. While it’s not always possible to avoid a dental emergency, here are some steps you can take to help protect your oral health:
- Wear a mouthguard when playing sports. If you don’t have a mouthguard, our dentist can customize one.
- Practice regular oral hygiene. It includes brushing at least twice a day, flossing at least once a day, preferably before bedtime, and rinsing between meals.
- Avoid tobacco products and limit alcohol. Tobacco and alcohol often inhibit your body’s ability to heal, exacerbating any oral injury you may have or may receive.
- Avoid chewing on hard things and using your teeth to open things.
- Visit Broadway Dentistry in Broadway, VA, at least once every six months for dental exams.
