- If heavy, sustained oral bleeding is occurring or it’s possible your jaw has been broken, please proceed straight to your nearest emergency room for assistance.
While some instances of dental damage that can’t be avoided, there are some steps you can take to decrease your family’s risk of experiencing dental emergencies. Be careful when eating foods that are overly hard or sticky, and don’t chew on the ice in your drink. Always wear an athletic mouthguard when participating in your favorite sporting event. Use scissors instead of your teeth to open the packaging. And most importantly, make sure to attend regular check-ups and cleanings! During these visits, Dr. Joseph and his staff can locate and treat minor issues that could have turned into the dental emergencies of tomorrow without intervention.
