Wondering how you can avoid a dental emergency? For patients who participate in sports/athletic activities, we always recommend wearing a sports mouthguard; this can protect your teeth and jaw. We also advise against chewing on ice or any other hard objects which can damage your teeth. Do not use your teeth to open things, hold things or do anything else your teeth aren’t meant to do.
