Prevention Advice

  • Regular Dental Visits: Visit a dentist regularly. It is important to diagnose and treat dental problems early before they become a dental emergency.

  • Early Warning Signs: If something does not feel right in your mouth, see your dentist as soon as possible. Ignoring it often will lead to worsening of the problem and it may become a dental emergency.

  • Mouth Guards: All children, and adults, should wear a mouth guard if they are are playing any sport where accidental contact can occur. For example,  we see a number of traumas every year related to basketball accidents. 

  • Full Face Cage: We highly recommend a full shield when playing hockey, in addition to the mouth guard, at all ages. A mouth guard only provides limited protection when it comes to a puck or hockey stick to the mouth.
