Your Teeth Aren’t Tools!

Posted .

Your beautiful teeth can make your smile brighten someone’s day, chew your food, or properly pronounce your words, but avoid using your teeth as a tool.  If you are in the habit of using your teeth to open a snack bag or pry something open, you can damage your teeth.

But what should you do if this does happen?  Let us know if you have an emergency.  First, do not be alarmed.  Broken or chipped teeth are not unusual, and we are experienced in handling dental traumas.  We can advise you on immediate treatment until your visit to the office and can treat you more thoroughly once you arrive.

Remember to use scissors or other tools to open the holiday packages, not your teeth!
