There are a number of simple precautions you can take to avoid accident or a dental 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. Accidents do happen, and knowing what to do when a dental emergency occurs can mean the difference between saving and losing a tooth.
