Particularly if you’re someone who likes to look on the bright side, the last thing you want to think about during the holidays is something that will require emergency dental care. After all, why think about a possible broken tooth, when you can be thinking about all the delicious foods and desserts you get to look forward to? Well, because sometimes, those yummy foods are the very cause of traumatic dental accidents you never saw coming! Thankfully, with simple advice, you can step around such issues (or at least react to them quickly, calmly, and with confidence, should you need to).
You Don’t Want It
You don’t want to deal with emergency dental care, of course, because you want your smile to be in excellent condition. You can usually prevent serious problems if you are mindful about your choices and actions:
- When you know it could break a tooth or you suspect it, don’t eat it
- If you want to eat something that could break a tooth but you know if you cut it up first, it won’t harm your oral health, cut it up first!
- When you know you have an untreated cavity or other issue that requires care, be careful with that tooth
However, You Might Need It!
You might be a picture perfect dental patient over the holiday season. However, even with extremely careful choices and actions, it’s still possible to end up with sudden trauma that you just didn’t expect. Not to worry, this is not the end of the world. True, it’s annoying to interrupt an otherwise happy time. However, getting the urgent treatment you need with our emergency dental care will ensure you can salvage what’s left of your holiday time! Call us if something happens. Stay nice and calm. We’ll handle the details and tell you exactly what to do!
