We never want anyone to have dental injuries or pain, yet we are prepared to help when they occur. With this in mind, here are three things you should do when it comes to dental emergencies.
Learn Some Dental First Aid
Just like you learn some basic first aid to help with other injuries, knowing some dental first aid can be valuable for you or a loved one. Rinsing your mouth after breaking or losing a tooth. Keeping dental floss to dislodge something stuck between your teeth. Keeping a lost tooth in a glass of milk all can help.
Don’t Wait to Call
When you need emergency dental care, call us right away at 843-627-4076. We will do everything to relieve your pain as soon as possible, including seeing you that same day whenever we are able.
Focus on Prevention
You can’t stop every dental problem, but you can take steps to prevent many of them from becoming emergencies. Having a good oral care routine, including regular dental checkups, can save you from tooth infections and gum disease. Wearing an athletic mouthguard also can spare you from broken and lost teeth.
