It’s that time of year when the temptation of Halloween candy is nearby. You know that enjoying a sweet treat can be OK in moderation, but it’s also possible that biting into the wrong thing could lead to a dental emergency.
We want to help you as quickly as possible if you experience any of these problems:
▶ BROKEN TOOTH
Biting into the wrong thing could cause a tooth to break. We can ease your pain, then plan your restorative care, such as a dental crown.
▶ CRACKED TOOTH
We hope you don’t find out the hard way why they are called jawbreakers, but if you do, once again we are here to help.
This isn’t likely to happen overnight, but eating too much candy could leave behind some sugary residue on your teeth. This can become food for harmful bacteria, which could lead to tooth decay or tooth infections.
Don’t hesitate to call 256-274-8680 to get relief from your dental emergencies at Charles F. Betts, Jr., DMD, Family Dentistry in Decatur, AL.
