There is no way you can completely prevent dental emergencies from occurring in your household. However, there are some ways to minimize the chances of your child developing oral pain or discomfort, including:

  • Bring your detective in twice a year for dental checkups and teeth cleanings with Agent T
  • Strengthen their protective enamel with fluoride treatments at the end of each professional teeth cleaning
  • If your child is susceptible to cavities, consider investing in dental sealants
  • Encourage a routine of brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing daily
  • Encourage your child not to chew on items that are hard, excessively chewy, or sticky
  • If your child plays contact sports or grinds their teeth, invest in a custom-fitted mouthguard
