Your dentists, Drs. Brown and Brown, encourage you to care for your smile while you participate in winter sports. This is because there is a chance you can suffer dental issues and even dental emergencies if you’re not careful. You don’t want that, do you? Well, they would be happy to help you care for your teeth and gums by recommending doing the following things:

-Wear a mouthguard: A mouthguard can protect your teeth when hard, forceful objects hit your mouth. This can help you prevent knocked-out, chipped, and broken teeth as well as injured gums.

-Avoid drinking sports drinks: Sports drinks are oftentimes loaded with sugar, and sugar promotes tooth decay. It’s recommended to avoid drinking sports drinks and to drink water or other non-sugary drinks instead.

-Attend your dental cleaning and exam appointments: Your dental checkups are very important. In fact, they are vital for a top-notch oral health and smile. So, don’t forget to attend your regular dental appointments every six months.
