How can I avoid needing emergency dental care?
Sometimes unpreventable accidents occur that require emergency dentistry, but there are a few things you can do to help prevent a dental emergency from occurring in your home. Many dental emergencies begin as minor issues that go untreated for too long, resulting in emergency care being required, like a small toothache that is ignored until it turns into unbearable pain. Scheduling regular visits with our team and practicing good oral hygiene at home is one of the best ways to avoid needing emergency dental care. If you participate in aggressive contact sports, we also offer custom athletic mouthguards that can protect your smile from potential trauma.Contact Us
