Avoid These 5 Smile Wreckers

oral health hazards Wetaskiwin

We hope this post will alert blog visitors to some harmful oral health threats. At Dr. Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin, we treat too many cases of tooth decay and damage caused by the following:

1. Sports Injuries

Many parents send their little ones out on the playing field with a mouthguard but fail to safeguard themselves when they participate in activities that put teeth at risk. Talk to us at Timothy G. Mahoney DDS about custom sports mouthguards for every athlete in the family.

2. Ice Chomping

Many people love chewing ice, especially that irresistible pebble ice you can get in some fountain drinks. You may not even be aware that you chew on the ice when you have finished your drink. Breaking this habit can protect your teeth from cracks, chips, and tooth sensitivity.

3. Oral Piercings

Are you someone who expresses your personality with piercings in and around the mouth? We strongly discourage this. In addition to the risk of cracking or chipping, infection and permanent nerve damage can occur.

4. Gummy or Sour Candy

Sugary treats are no friend to your enamel, but gummy candy packs a double punch because it is both sugary and clings to teeth. Sour candy triggers even more acid production than sugary candy alone. If your sweet tooth is extremely persuasive, chew sugarless gum.

5. Eating Disorders

These complex mental disorders have a plethora of mental and physical ramifications and, for most affected people, cannot be simply wished away with willpower. If you suffer from bulimia or anorexia, we hope you are receiving the appropriate specialized care. Be advised, however, that there are some things you can do to receive a measure of protection for your teeth while you work through the healing process. Doctor Mahoney can provide sensitive, discrete oral health counsel for those currently suffering or those who have overcome a disorder but have tooth damage as a result.

What If It’s Too Late?

If you have oral health problems due to one of these, or for any other reason, there are still ways to heal your smile. Virtually all tooth damage can be treated with advanced dentistry.
