28 Jun Be prepared!
Summer is here and that can mean a whole lot more time outside having adventures, trying out new sports and perhaps losing your front teeth. If you are a mountain biker, or a surfer, or love doing something that could involve a sudden facial injury, then you need to be prepared. This means making sure you have access to a good emergency dentist in North London.
Here at Dental Beauty Southgate in Southgate, we pride ourselves on our services as an emergency dentist in North London. We are here when you have sudden, unexpected needs and we will do our utmost to help you.
Get a mouth guard
If you are regularly doing something that could involve you getting your teeth knocked out, then you need to get a mouth guard. This is a rubbery guard that fits over your top teeth and gums to cushion them from any blows against a hard surface or someone else. It protects your teeth as well as your lips, tongue, cheeks and jaw. We make mouth guards using impressions of your teeth so that they fit precisely and are comfortable.
Put our number in your phone
If you do get your teeth knocked out, you need to be able to get to us as soon as possible. Putting our number in your phone will save you valuable time when you are in a state of shock.
Get here fast
If your teeth are still in one piece and you can get to us within two hours, we stand a good chance of being able to re-implant them into their sockets.
How to transport your teeth
Here are few tips on what to do:
- Pick up your teeth by the crown and not the root. This avoids damaging the fibres still attached to the root;
- Store the tooth either in your mouth or in a jar of milk. Never store them in tap water. The chemicals in it will kill the tooth;
- Don’t let your tooth dry out;
- Get here as fast as you can.
Now that you know all that, you can be prepared. We look forward to helping you when we act as your emergency dentist in North London.
