How to Avoid Dental Emergencies
Accidents are unplanned, and therefore hard to prepare for. The best option for staying in front of a dental emergency is to be preventative. Schedule regular exams every six months and continue your regimen of good oral hygiene. Brush at least twice a day, floss once per day, and avoid brittle foods like hard candy that may do damage to your teeth!
