emergency dentistry coquitlamSometimes, accidents are just bound to happen. No matter how careful you are or how well you take care of yourself, you can never really be sure about anything that’s about to happen. The same is true with your dental health. It may seem highly unlikely that you’ll ever need an emergency dentist, but it is better to know you have access to help and not have it, than need it but not know where to find one.

When a person gets into a fist fight and loses a tooth in the process or you are eating a meal and you bite on something particularly hard and damage your tooth fillings, or maybe you snag your braces on something and damage your teeth…these are just some of the common things that happen in our daily lives that require you to find an emergency dentist as soon as possible.

The best thing to remember and prepare for these kinds of situations is to develop a strong and personal relationship with your family dentist. This ensures you know who to call or talk to when emergency dental situations arise. Developing a relationship with your dentist will be beneficial in the long run as they will have a working knowledge of your dental records and history, which means they’ll know what’s the appropriate measures to take to help you immediately. Finally, you can always ask your regular dentist if they can help when it comes to an emergency dentist, because if they are unavailable, most likely they know someone who they can recommend and trust to be able to handle any emergencies.

When it comes to unforeseen situations and accidents, it is better to be prepared than to be sorry. Always keep the number of your dentist saved in your mobile phone. You never know when you or someone you know will need help fast.
