Not all dental emergencies can be avoided, but there are times patients can take certain steps to reduce their risk of experiencing a problem. For example, patients who are involved in high impact sports will want to ask the team at Hebron Smiles about the use of a mouth guard for sports involvement. Avoiding hard objects that can break the teeth, such as hard candy and chewing ice, will reduce one’s overall risk of cracking teeth or breaking restorations. Also, the teeth should never be used for cutting things, only scissors.
