First, you should call our team. You can also follow these at-home care instructions:
The first step of preventing dental emergencies is maintaining basic oral hygiene by brushing and flossing teeth each day and visiting the dentist two times each year for checkups and teeth cleanings. You should also avoid bad habits like chewing on ice or fingernails. Don’t use your teeth as tools to open packages or crack nuts. Wear mouthguards to protect teeth from damage caused by nighttime teeth grinding and clenching or sports related dental injuries. While store bought mouthguards are available, it may be beneficial to consider a custom crafted sportsguard or nightguard to ensure optimal smile protection.
