Happy New Year!
If you’re someone who enjoys making resolutions, then you’ve probably made plans already to start good habits to improve your health and quality of life in 2024.
Your friends at Houston Uptown Dentists want to support your efforts in every way possible, starting with today’s video about how physical fitness can impact a healthy smile.
You’ll hear from several elite athletes who have to take certain precautions so intense training for their sport doesn’t compromise their dental health.
While you may not be an Olympic athlete, ramping up your fitness routine at the start of a new year to shed some pounds or get into better shape can pose the same risks for your teeth and gums. Dehydration, dry mouth, high-impact activities, and sugary sports drinks can all contribute to issues like tooth decay, tooth loss, gum disease, and dental damage.
So be sure to keep your smile safe while you’re sweating it out in the gym with plenty of water, athletic mouthguards, and routine dental care in Houston, TX!
