HOW TO PROTECT YOUR TEETH

Sadly, there are many instances where dental emergencies are unavoidable. However, there are some steps you and your family can take to protect your smiles and keep them shining brightly. These include:

  •  Exercise caution when eating foods that are particularly hard, chewy, or sticky.
  •  Don’t chew the ice in your drinks.
  •  When opening a new item that’s wrapped in difficult packaging, always use a pair of scissors instead of your own teeth.
  •  Always wear a mouthguard when participating in sporting events that could involve contact with a projectile, a hard surface, or another person.
  •  Attend check-ups and cleanings at Marvel Dental every six months! Our team can locate and treat dental problems before they have the chance to develop into emergency situations.

These are some situations where our team may recommend going straight to your nearest emergency room instead of our Midlothian, TX practice. These include when the patient is experiencing heavy oral bleeding that isn’t subsiding with pressure or a badly injured jaw that could be broken. After your condition is stabilized and there’s no immediate danger, our team can discuss possible restorative and reconstructive solutions with you. Patients from Midlothian, TX and surrounding areas are welcome to contact us today for assistance!
