Avoiding dental emergencies
You can protect your teeth from cavities with regular brushing and check-ups with the dentist.
Be aware of your diet and avoid consuming too many sugary or acidic foods which can erode enamel. Be careful with very hard foods which could break your teeth.
Watch out for potential hazards (for children and adults) around the house. Close any cupboard doors, watch out for spills and any loose wires on the floor.
When playing contact sports always wear mouth guards to avoid injury.
