Smile Trauma: Prevention And Care

When you think about dental emergencies and reasons you may come see us for emergency dental care, you may find yourself wondering if there’s something you could have done. You may wonder at the moment, as well, if perhaps you are overlooking instances in your daily life when smile trauma is highly possible but it’s not on your radar. Fortunately, it is very easy for us to quickly outline some simple ways to prevent serious trauma from occurring. However, should it happen, we are also happy to report we are here to help. Get the details!

Wear An Athletic Mouthguard

If you want to avoid smile trauma, then it is very important to wear an athletic mouthguard when you participate in anything athletic that could result in an impact. This might mean team sports like soccer, deciding to take up roller skating, or anything else! The guard offers immeasurable protection from impacts, so your smile remains safe rather than severely damaged. Not sure where to begin or what to purchase? Ask during your visit.

Wear Your Helmet!

Again, you might think more about your overall safety than about your smile but one thing you should keep in mind: Wearing a helmet can protect you from smile trauma, too! If you take a tumble off of a bicycle or trip while rollerblading, the damage can be serious. Wear your helmet for additional protection.
