Don't Put Off Emergency Dental Treatment
Dental emergencies are unpredictable, but there's one thing you can count on: they won't treat themselves or go away on their own. Even if you find temporary pain relief, the underlying problem will remain until you see your dentist for treatment.
In many cases, waiting only worsens the problem and makes the situation more complex or costly to treat.
At Mint Dental Care, you'll find that we genuinely care about the kind of experience you have with us, and we do everything to ensure that you are comfortable. Please don't let dental anxiety ruin your oral health—we are here to help you!
How to Avoid Dental Emergencies
We've already established that no one likes dental emergencies, so what can you do to avoid them? You can't predict an emergency like dental trauma from an accident, but you can take steps to avoid most of the other situations listed above.
Dental Checkups Every 3–6 Months
Exams and teeth cleanings every six months are preventive, and that's what you want—to prevent problems that lead to emergencies. Not only does our dentist look for signs of cavities, gum disease, and broken or cracked teeth, he also checks all your dental work to make sure it's stable and in good condition.
Practice Excellent Oral Hygiene
Dental checkups are crucial, but healthy smiles start at home when you are conscientious with your oral hygiene. Brush at least twice a day and floss once to avoid cavities, gum disease, and tooth infections or abscesses.
Protect Your Dental Work
Tooth restorations like crowns and bridges are durable and can last for many years. However, they're no match for hard chips, nuts, or crusty bread that can crack or break them. Also, avoid gummy candies, caramel, or other sticky foods that can pull out a crown faster than you can say, "call my emergency dentist."
