Not every dental emergency is avoidable, but some of the basics you should keep in mind to minimize your child’s risk for a dental emergency include:

  • Make sure your child carefully brushes and flosses each day.
  • Limit your child’s consumption of sugary and acidic foods to reduce plaque production and cavity risk.
  • Bring your child to see us at least two times each year for dental exams and teeth cleanings to keep smiles healthy.
  • Make sure kids who play sports wear a customized mouthguard to protect their smiles during athletic events and practices.
  • Don’t let kids use to teeth to open packages and try to stop them from chewing on fingernails, ice cubes, and other hard objects.
