How Can I Prevent Dental Emergencies?
Never chew on the ice in your drink.
Exercise plenty of caution when enjoying foods that are overly chewy, hard, or tough in the mouth.
Use scissors when opening packaging and not your own teeth.
Always wear a sports guard when participating in a sport where you could come into contact with hard objects or other players.
