Never be afraid to look for new ways to improve your smile through the use of effective cleaning tools. Always make sure you are flossing and brushing your teeth every day and using tools that are safe and effective for use. This can include visiting your dentist for product recommendations or suggestions or looking for the ADA Seal of Acceptance on product packaging.

If you are concerned about issues associated with risks from playing contact sports, be aware there are numerous safety tools that can be used to help keep your mouth and face safe. Helmets, face masks, and mouth guards have all been proven highly effective for keeping your smile safe. It is important to do so as a single wrong blow to the face can easily knock out multiple teeth or even break your jaw.

Be aware that there are several health risks associated with wearing mouth jewelry. Most importantly, it is essential to avoid lip and tongue rings whenever possible. This is because these products can easily cause damage your mouth via infections, chipped teeth, or nerve damage. Furthermore, avoid unhealthy products in your diet that can either chip and crack your teeth or lead to severe dental erosion.
