There are a number of simple precautions
You can take to avoid accident and injury to your teeth. One way to reduce the chances of damage to your teeth,
lips, cheek and tongue is to wear a mouth guard when participating in sports or recreational activities that may pose a risk. Avoid chewing ice, popcorn kernels and hard candy, all of which can crack a tooth. Cut tape and cellophane wrappers with scissors rather than your teeth.
Accidents do happen, and knowing what to do when one occurs can mean the difference between saving a tooth and losing a tooth.
Remember pain is a signal that something is wrong – a problem that will not disappear even if pain subsides.
BITTEN LIP OR TONGUE
Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area . Use cold compresses on the area to keep swelling down. Call your dentist immediately.
JAW POSSIBLY BROKEN
Apply cold compresses to control the swelling. Go to your dentist or hospital emergency room immediately.
KNOCKED OUT TOOTH
Hold the tooth by the crown and rinse off the root of the tooth if it is dirty. Do not scrub or remove any attached tissue fragments. If possible, gently insert and hold the tooth in it’s socket. If that isn’t possible, put the tooth in a cup of milk and get to the dentist as quickly as possible. Remember to take the tooth with you!
OBJECTS CAUGHT BETWEEN TEETH
Try and gently remove the objects with dental floss; avoid cutting the gums. Never use sharp instruments to remove any object that is stuck between your teeth. If you can’t dislodge the object using dental floss, contact your dentist.
Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean it out. Gently use dental floss to remove any food or debris caught between the teeth. Never put aspirin or any other painkiller against the gums near the aching tooth. This could burn the gum tissue.
If the pain persists, contact your dentist.
STAY SAFE & KEEP SMILING!
THE HEART OF THE MATTER
Studies by the American Heart Association concluded that while a cause-and-effect relationship has not yet been proven, most heart patients have some form of gum disease. Scientists believe that inflammation caused by gum disease may be responsible for the association. Though the link between oral health and heart health is not completely clear, the existing findings show that practicing good oral hygiene may contribute to a healthy heart.
Bottom line: Since inflammation from gum disease and heart disease, artery blockage and stroke are linked, it makes sense to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
THE GOOD NEWS: YOU CAN TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR ORAL HEALTH FOLLOWING THESE SIMPLE STEPS.
Eat a healthy diet that includes whole foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and dairy.
Limit sugar intake, starches and simple carbs.
Don’t smoke or chew tobacco.
Reduce stress through regular exercise. (stress can affect your body’s ability to fight infections, including gum disease)
Brush your teeth 2x daily with a soft bristled toothbrush. (try a battery operated toothbrush)
Change your toothbrush every 3-4 months.
Use an antibacterial mouth rinse.
See your dentist if you notice bleeding or tender gums.
Tell your dentist if you have heart disease; you may need antibiotics before certain procedures.
See your dentist every six months for preventive checkups and cleanings.
