Are you protecting your smile against dental dangers that pop up in your daily life? Did you know that dietary choices as well as lifestyle choices can play a key role in your oral health and can often dictate whether your smile will thrive or fail? It’s true, so it is important to always take the necessary steps to have a prevention plan in place as well as treatments associated with any tooth hazard risk factors that can arise.
Always exercise caution when biting into any hard products. This can include hard candies, ice, or cough drops. These products can chip and crack your teeth, and they can potentially cause your teeth to move out of alignment as well. Furthermore, products such as candies and cough drops are often loaded with sugar, which can increase your risk of dental erosion.
Exercise caution with any activities that include putting your mouth at risk for accidents and injuries. Ideally, you should wear a mouthguard to help protect your teeth from getting knocked out. Furthermore, a mouthguard appliance can be used if you grind your teeth at night due to bruxism. A night guard or bite plate may be required.
