How can I prevent a dental emergency?

Depending on the nature of the dental emergency the following simple precautions can help prevent injuries to your teeth, gums, and mouth.

  1. When playing any contact sport or high impact recreational activities it is essential you wear a custom-made mouthguard that is designed and fitted by your dentist.
  2. Try not to use your teeth to open objects such as a sealed glass bottle or pack of chips. Avoid chewing on hard objects such as ice, nuts, or your pen!
  3. Visit your dentist for regular dental checks – at these periodic appointments your dentist will identify, treat and monitor any problem/at risk areas, whilst prioritising any urgent issues.
