Dental Pulp Infection - How to prevent?

Regular check-ups with your dentist and practising good oral hygiene are the best modes of prevention. Decay or a defective filling can be detected and treated early before there is irreversible damage to the dental pulp.

Avoid chewing on hard objects such as ice, hard nuts or pens so as to prevent cracked teeth.

You should wear a mouth guard if you participate in contact sports to avoid dental trauma. Any activity involving speed has an increased chance of falling and the potential of getting in contact with a hard piece of equipment.

A mouth guard helps to distribute the force of impact in any accident to prevent the likelihood of dental injury to the front teeth.

Do not clench or grind your teeth. If you clench or grind your teeth at night, speak to your dentist about getting a night guard.
