If you’re not already done so, it is a good idea to establish a tooth hazard prevention plan to correct any issues and ailments that may exist with your smile. The more you can do to keep your smile safe; the healthier smile will be and the longer it will last. Numerous forms of oral health plans and safety equipment should be used to prevent any damage from befalling your teeth and gums. However, accidents do happen.

Exercise caution with tongue piercings. If placed incorrectly, a tongue piercing can lead to nerve damage and even popped blood vessels. Furthermore, the pieces can break off and become choking hazards. In addition, they are known for chipping and cracking teeth, and leading to infections. Thus, avoid tongue piercings given the tooth hazards that they pose.

Mouth guards are always a highly effective option for treating your smile and protecting it against dental damage. Tooth hazards can arise anytime, so it is always important to have a safety device inserted in your mouth to help keep it safe. Your dentist will be able to craft you a customizable mouthguard, or you can purchase one at the store to help keep your teeth and gums safe.

Exercise caution with any products that you bite into including chewing on ice. By chewing on ice, you’re putting yourself at severe risk for dental damage due to chipped or cracked teeth. Similarly, avoid hard or sweet treats that can easily chip and crack your teeth as well. Furthermore, numerous sweets are loaded with sugars which can promote tooth decay and cavities.
