Apple Valley, MN, July 29, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Dakota Dental family dentists in Apple Valley, MN, are reminding Minnesotans to be careful with their teeth this summer because dental emergencies can quickly ruin an otherwise fun experience. One of the best ways to protect teeth is to schedule regular checkups and cleanings with family dentists such as your friends at Dakota Dental. It is also important to wear properly fitting protective gear, including a mouth guard, when participating in sports, in-line skating, or skateboarding. And never use teeth as a tool to open, pry, or cut things.
If dental emergencies do occur, take quick action. Permanent teeth can often be saved, so it is essential to contact the Apple Valley dentists at Dakota Dental right away. Dakota Dental will work to achieve the best possible outcome following a dental emergency when further treatment or cosmetic dentistry is needed to prevent infection or darkening of the tooth.
Beyond protecting teeth or handling dental emergencies, Dakota Dental reminds Minnesotans to take time this summer to evaluate if any dental insurance benefits remain. Often, these benefits will be lost at the end of the year, so summertime is a good time to move forward with recommended dental services and treatments. It is also a good time to plan for setting aside money in pretax plans for dental services to be completed in 2013.
Dakota Dental serves the southern Minneapolis/Saint Paul suburbs from offices in Apple Valley, Minnesota. Dakota Dental provides comprehensive dental services including, but not limited to, preventative dental work, dental implants, dental for kids, cosmetic dentistry, and dental emergency services.
