Tips for Living Mouth Smart
Get Regular Dental Checkups
Have you ever wondered why the American Dental Association and your dentist recommend you come back every six months? It’s because regular dental visits are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums. And in between those examinations, it’s important that you work to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy.
Protect Teeth During Sports
Any participant in a sport that involves possible (or even potential) impact with other players, balls, or hard surfaces should protect their teeth with a mouth guard. The American Dental Association recommends wearing mouth guards during all practices and competitions for the following sports: acrobats, basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, handball, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, shot putting, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer, squash, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weightlifting, and wrestling.
Gum disease, bad breath, bone loss, and oral cancer are only some of the dental health problems smokers face. Just another reason to quit!
