Prevent Dental Emergencies This Spring!
Planning ahead could mean the difference between a fun spring season with your family and a painful dental emergency at the worst possible time.
So here are a few things you can do to protect your family’s smiles and lower their risk for dental emergencies this season:
*Take Care Of Dental Problems Before Traveling*
If you’re like many people this time of year, you may have plans to take a family vacation during spring break.
To help ensure your family has a nice time, free from dental problems that would derail your fun, you should go ahead and take care of any nagging oral health issues before you travel.
Tooth sensitivity, a toothache, or a decayed, weak tooth should be addressed now so that they don’t worsen while you’re away from home. You don’t want to be enjoying time with your family in an exciting new city only to be faced with a broken tooth at dinner or a pulsating pain in your mouth while touring a museum.
Get restorative treatment before you leave so you can have a pain-free, problem-free getaway!
*Use An Athletic Mouthguard*
Spring sports season is underway, which means you’ll need to protect the athletes in your family from injuries to their teeth and gums.
The best way to do that isn’t by going to the nearest sporting goods store for a boil-and-bite mouthguard. It’s by visiting your San Antonio dentist for a custom-made athletic mouthguard!
We take precise measurements to ensure proper fit and full coverage so the active movers and shakers in your household don’t risk a mid-game dental emergency!
*Drink Plenty Of Water*
You may not have seen this one coming.
Of course, you know how important it is to drink plenty of water each day. Your body needs it, but so does your mouth!
Water can even help you prevent dental emergencies.
Just to be clear, it’s not going to do you any good to grab a quick drink of water at the first sign of a throbbing toothache!
But keeping your mouth hydrated goes a long way to protect your dental health overall. That’s because it keeps your saliva production at a healthy level, enough to coat your teeth and gums with bacteria-fighting protection and prevent harmful acids from eroding your enamel.
Without enough water, you’ll have a dry mouth, and your teeth will be more prone to dental problems.
We can provide treatment at Miner Dental if you’re drinking lots of water but are still suffering from dry mouth symptoms.
Otherwise, keep yourself well-hydrated so that valuable saliva continues to flow freely and can do its job for your smile!
