Our goal is for our patients to have optimal oral health and never experience a dental emergency. Unfortunately, as much as we would all love to always have amazing oral health, that is not always reality. One of the most common dental emergencies that we see in the office is a cracked tooth. There are many ways to prevent a cracked tooth, but the best way is to maintain your routine oral hygiene examination and cleaning appointments. During these visits, we will look for any problem areas in the mouth and recommend treatment. If we recommend treatment, be sure to schedule your appointment as soon as possible.
Did you avoid eating ice cream this past summer because it causes issues with tooth sensitivity? While an occasional issue with sensitivity is nothing to be concerned about, If you find yourself avoiding certain hot and cold foods because it bothers your teeth frequently, it can be cause for concern.
