Keeping Your Smile Healthy
We never want you to experience the pain that comes with many dental emergencies, which is why we recommend preventive dental care.
Best practices for lowering your risks include:
- Brushing and flossing at least two times every day
- Visiting your dentist at least two times each year for exams and cleanings
- Wearing your nightguard if you suffer from bruxism (grinding and clenching your teeth)
- Wearing a mouthguard if you play sports
At Naylors Court Dental Partners, we want you to enjoy a comfortable and healthy smile. Preventive dentistry is designed to lower your risks for complications like root infections, deep cavities, and periodontal disease—all of which can lead to a dental emergency.
