You can prevent dental emergencies by keeping up with your six-month dental exams and cleanings. As part of these regular dental appointments, your dentist looks for loose fillings or other signs of problems.
It is through both the visual examination and the X-ray, your dentist can find an infection, decay, and gum disease. Of course, preventative maintenance for your teeth is the main way to prevent the need for most urgent care. Sometimes these dental needs necessitate treatments like fillings, root canal therapy, or tooth extraction. You can also watch for signs of problems when you brush your teeth each day.
Dental emergencies still happen from time to time, even when you take great care of your teeth and gums.
