Dealing with a dental emergency is no fun! While you can’t really plan for an emergency, there are steps you can take at home to avoid them.

We’re sharing a video from the ADA that talks about ways you can avoid a dental emergency. For example, don’t make it a habit of using your teeth to open objects, like a bottle or package in the mail, and make sure to wear a mouthguard while you play sports.

Most of all, it’s important to know what to do if an emergency does happen! Whether you are dealing with a broken or lost tooth or something else causing you pain, we can handle it. We work on fitting in our emergency appointments the same-day, so call North Oaks Dental at 248-712-1522 (Royal Oak) 248-963-1969 (New Hudson) for any urgent needs. You can also request an appointment online.
