There are many things that can threaten, attack and damage the smile. It’s very important to protect the teeth and gums regularly so you can maintain a top-notch oral health. Our dentist, Dr. John Cloud, is happy to help you do so by giving you the tips and tricks you need. Those are:

-Wear a mouthguard: When you play high-contact sports and activities, there is a chance hard, forceful objects can hit the mouth and damage the smile. It’s very important to protect the smile when this happens with a mouthguard because the mouthguard can absorb the force and help you prevent knocked-out and broken teeth.

-Use fluoride: Fluoride can help you have a strong smile because it strengthens the tooth enamel. This is why our dentist encourages you to expose your teeth to fluoride regularly. You can do so by using fluoride oral hygiene products, drinking fluoridated water and receiving professional fluoride treatments.

-Take advantage of dental sealants: Dental sealants keep bacteria and acid from wearing down the enamel of the back teeth. This is because it covers the teeth and keeps those harmful substances at bay. So, consider protecting your molars with dental sealants the next time you come into our office.
