If you are ready to improve your smile, seek out the use of our dentist office to ensure that restorations and repairs can be applied as needed. If for any reason you have suffered any dental damage, treatments will often need to be given as soon as possible to prevent the effects of further damage to your smile. If left untreated, several health risks associated with dental damage can progress further and lead to tooth loss or gum disease.

If you routinely partake in contact sports, you could be putting your smile at an increased risk of dental damage. However, in many situations, you will find yourself at risk of further trauma to your smile due to the fact that a single strike or blow to your face can knock out several teeth or even break your jaw. In most instances, decades of support for your smile can be erased with a single strike or accident due to contact sports. Thus, make sure that you are applying the necessary care and preventive treatments, including the use of oral appliances and safety equipment to keep your smile safe. Furthermore, be aware of any other unhealthy habits in your life that can also be putting your smile at risk of dental damage, including smoking or using drugs.
