Our dentist, Dr. Jeremy Johnson, wants you to have the top-notch smile and oral health you deserve. One way to achieve those goals is to make sure to protect your smile. Unfortunately, there are many things in the world that can threaten and damage your teeth and gums. The good news is that there are also things you can do to fight those destructive things. Some tricks for doing so include:
-Wearing a mouthguard: A mouthguard is an appliance that protects your teeth, gums and jaw when you participate in high-contact sports and activities. It absorbs the force applied to the mouth when something strikes it.
-Use fluoride: Fluoride can protect your smile because it makes the tooth enamel harder. The harder the tooth enamel, the less chance you have of suffering dental issues. So, make sure to expose your teeth to fluoride regularly.
-Take advantage of dental sealants: Dental sealants keep bacteria and acid from wearing down the enamel of your back teeth. This is because it covers the chewing surfaces of those teeth and keeps harmful substances at bay. So, consider protecting your molars with dental sealants the next time you come into our office.
