Don’t Let A Preventable Dental Emergency Sideline Your Oral Health

Your oral health is a matter of great importance since it coordinates with the whole body. Neglected emergencies can only result in future problems if not cured on time. Regular visits to your dentist’s office and periodic check-ups can help prevent major dental issues.

What are Some Preventable Dental Emergencies?

Below given are some of the dental emergencies that can be cured if necessary steps are taken on time:

Tooth Decay

Tooth decay is the damage done to the enamel of the teeth due to excessive plaque and bacteria build-up. It can happen to anyone, whether children or the elderly and can cause significant damage to oral health.

Tooth decay is entirely preventable with regular brushing, twice or thrice a day, and flossing, which is the first step. Keeping your teeth clean can prevent plaque build-up and severe damage to teeth.

Chipped Tooth

Not every broken or chipped tooth is curable like those from car accidents or trauma to face. However, chipping due to minor accidents like falling or a punch can be corrected. Regular biting on hard food like candy, ice, or bones without protective gear can increase the chances of breaking teeth.

Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold press to reduce swelling if you get a broken tooth. Keep the broken piece of tooth in a jar of milk to retain moisture and calcium. Rush to the doctor who will be able to fix the problem immediately.

Abscessed Tooth

An abscess is a pocket of pus that forms around a tooth or gum caused by bacteria, leading to severe pain or even tooth loss. Like other dental problems, brushing and flossing regularly also works wonders here. Use toothpaste containing fluoride and visit your doctor regularly to look out for such a problem as early as possible.

Importance of Mouthguard

Mouthguards are cushion paddings to protect your teeth from blows that can knock them out. How would you feel if you suddenly lost a tooth or two while receiving a punch? Your beautiful smile will be hampered. To refrain from such accidents, mouthguards are used.

Also known as mouth protectors, they can minimize the risk of broken teeth and injuries to lips, tongue, face, or jaw. Mouth protectors can help prevent dental emergencies also. To know more about them, contact us or book an appointment at
