Although your teeth are somewhat strong, numerous tooth hazards in this world are much stronger. Thus, you will have to take extra care of your teeth to ensure they last as long as you do. In too many situations, individuals who neglect their oral health care can end up with severe dental damage. In order to avoid having broken teeth or infected gums, it’s a good idea to be prepared for any tooth hazards that may come your way.

Protecting your risk of tooth hazards that may arise includes avoiding mouth jewelry in the form of tongue piercings. If a tongue piercing places, it can cause nerve damage and severe bleeding due to pierced blood vessels. In addition, tongue piercings can give rise to infections, chipped or cracked teeth, oral inflammation, and other potential oral health risks.

To help keep your smile safe, feel free to speak with your dentist about receiving a customizable mouth guard. Mouth guards are designed to help protect the top of your teeth and gums as an additional level of support against dental damage. Mouthguards can prove to be highly effective against blunt trauma and can help minimize the damage that would normally break or severely hinder your teeth.

Are you aware of the risk of biting directly into hard products? In order to keep your teeth safe, it is important to avoid biting directly into products that can easily chip and crack your teeth. Doing so can not only damage your teeth, but it can also potentially even knock your teeth completely out. Even if your teeth are strong enough to bite into these products in the past, they may have weakened over time and are now no longer effective for biting through these products. This can include chewing on ice, or other similar hard products such as candies and popcorn kernels.
