Although it’s impossible to avoid all dental emergencies, there are ways to reduce your risk of having to see Dr. Cole, Dr. Yeary, or Dr. Weaver for a sudden injury. You can do this by:

  • Wearing appropriate mouth protection should you decide to play sports.
  • Wearing a custom nightguard if you tend to grind your teeth at night.
  • Eating healthy foods that are full of beneficial nutrients and vitamins.
  • Giving up unhealthy habits that can easily damage your teeth and gums (i.e., eating ice)
  • Keeping up with your oral hygiene routine at home.
  • Seeing our team every six months for regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings.
