Protecting your smile doesn’t have to be a full-time job. However, there are a few things you should do to ensure your smile can thrive for the rest of your life. Set forth and effective oral health care plan checklist so you can make sure that any tooth hazards that arise in your daily life can be minimized. Ensure that your smile can overcome any obstacles that are thrown into your path so that your smile can continue to thrive for the rest of your life.
A common tooth hazard that often results in dental damage is mouth jewelry. Mouth jewelry, specifically lip and tongue rings, can give rise to numerous forms of oral ailments including infectious diseases, nerve damage, oral inflammation, cracked and chipped teeth, and can severely hinder your smile due to oral accidents and injuries associated with choking hazards they might pose.
If your smile requires an oral appliance such as a mouth guard, speak with their dentist about receiving a customizable one for your exact dental profile. As an alternative, a mouthguard can be purchased at local stores that come pre-formed and ready-to-wear. Mouth guards are highly effective for preventing dental damage and broken or lost teeth caused by blunt trauma or oral accidents and injuries.
Exercise caution when biting into products that can easily chip and crack your smile. If you’re not careful, these products can chip and crack your teeth and lead to severe dental damage. Tooth hazards in the form of hard candies or chewing on ice are well-known and can easily destroy your smile, so you should always avoid products that are not meant to be bitten into.
