People who take part in sports have been advised that fractured teeth and other oral health problems can be avoided.
The Hattiesburg American reported that Dr John Roberson, a board-certified oral surgeon who practices oral and maxillofacial surgery in Hattiesburg, has claimed wearing a mouth guard is the best way to avoid broken and lost teeth.
He argued that: “Mouth guards should be worn at all times during competition; in practice as well as in games.”
Elsewhere, individuals were recently advised that they could boost their oral health by ensuring they keep themselves well hydrated – something that those who take part in physical exercise will no doubt be aware of.
The Record reported that drinking lots of water not only helps people avoid dry mouth, but it also acts to wash away debris from food.
