Why Choose Texas Dentistry for Emergency Dentistry?

Be Mindful of What You Eat

From biting down on a hard piece of fruit or vegetable to chewing ice or consuming too much sugar, what you eat can lead to serious problems for your oral health. If a cavity develops and the infection reaches the inner layer of your tooth (the pulp), you’ll be looking at a root canal to save your tooth and eliminate the pain. But if you chip or crack a tooth because of something you ate that is hard or crunchy, you may be spending time and money to have a dental crown put into place.

Protect Your Teeth

Do you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding)? Do you enjoy playing sports? A nightguard or sportsguard are both beneficial oral devices that are designed to protect your teeth from excessive wear and tear and injury. If you discover that you grind your teeth at night, a custom nightguard will help to keep your teeth from coming into contact with each other while you sleep.

If it’s sports you enjoy or other outdoor activities, protect your mouth from a hard hit, sudden slip, or spiked volleyball to the face. By wearing a sportsguard, you can reduce the impact on your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues, lessening your chances of dealing with a serious dental emergency.

Keep Brushing and Flossing

A good oral hygiene routine is imperative if you want to reduce the chances of a dental emergency. Not only are you removing harmful bacteria and food particles from the surfaces and crevices of your teeth and gums, but if you use fluoride toothpaste, you are also helping to strengthen tooth enamel and combat tooth decay.

Make sure you’re brushing your teeth twice a day for two full minutes as well as flossing in-between your teeth once a day and rinsing with an ADA-approved mouthwash.
