Preventive measures to avoid dental emergencies:
a) Avoid actions that cause harm to your teeth and gums:
Do not use your teeth other than to eat. Opening packages and bottles with your teeth will lead to tooth damage and can also develop into severe issues and will require emergency dental care.
b) Safety measures to be followed with your family to prevent a dental emergency like wearing protective gear while taking part in contact sports.
c) Limit your consumption of sugar and acids.
However, some dental emergencies are out of our control; we can do our best in dental emergency prevention by maintaining a robust and healthy set of teeth through small steps such as brushing, flossing and monitoring the foods we eat.
