Tooth enamel is one of the hardest substances in the human body, but it’s not indestructible! Everyday habits can result in wearing down your tooth enamel and weakening it to the point of breaking on something as soft a bread roll! In most cases, that little snack was simply the final straw for an already damaged tooth.
Fractures can go undetected for years if you do not maintain regular dental exams. A dental exam, at least twice a year, with Santa Rosa emergency dentist Dr. Field is a good way to maintain your oral health and ensure no tooth fractures go untreated.
Avoid biting into harder things like ice, or using your teeth as tools, as this can crack or damage even the healthiest of teeth.
Infections in a tooth or gums can come on quickly, and be extremely painful. Infections in your mouth can lead to your bone diminishing, nerve exposure, tooth loss and many other painful side effects that can be avoided.
Brushing 2x a day for 2 minutes at a time, and flossing once a day is your best in-home defense against oral infections that cause dental emergencies.
Regular dental cleanings with Santa Rosa emergency dentist Dr. Field are an inexpensive way to protect your teeth and gums from infection and maintain your oral health.
