The best way to avoid dental emergencies is to remove the perils from your home. Avoid chewing on hard foods such as ice. Practice car safety by using car seats for younger children and seatbelts for older kids. If your child engages in contact sports, encourage them to wear a mouthguard. We offer custom mouthguards for children, ask us during your next visit. And don’t forget to prevent tooth decay by brushing regularly, flossing, and visiting us for regular checkups.
