Oral Health Tips For Athletes And Sports Enthusiasts

If staying active is a priority for you, or if you’re an athlete that needs to perform at high level, you’ll want to know how to keep your body strong and healthy.

A balanced diet and a personalised training plan can definitely help. But did you know that your oral health can negatively affect your sports performance? Here are some tips to ensure this doesn’t happen.

Key takeaways:

–   Athletes and those who exercise frequently have a higher risk of suffering injuries to their teeth or mouth. You may want to have a custom mouth guard made for use during training or competition. Ask your dentist for details.

–   Stay hydrated at all times. Otherwise, you can develop dry mouth, which is a risk factor for several dental conditions like gum disease and cavities.

–  You must also keep an eye on the sugar content of your snacks and sports drinks. Consuming too much sugar can cause cavities and decay.

Cavities, gum inflammation, and other dental conditions can cause pain and have a negative effect on your performance. The tips above will help you prevent that.
