It’s never too early to start thinking about what you can do to take care of your smile for the rest of your life. Your adult teeth will be the last set you get once your wisdom teeth grow in as a teen. This means that they have to last you for the rest of your life. It is a lot of responsibility, but as long as you stay safe and have protective measures in play, your teeth can continue to thrive for as long as you do.

If you’re not careful, tongue piercings can pose significant tooth hazards. This is because of tongue piercings are inserted directly into your tongue and can lead to severe nerve damage and other forms of oral health accidents. Tongue piercings can chip and crack your teeth if they break off and can even pose as choking hazards. In addition, tongue piercings are known to lead to infectious diseases and oral inflammation.

If you require an oral health care device to protect against dental damage, mouth guards can be highly effective. Speak with your dentist about the option of having a custom mouth guard designed and customized for your dental profile. Mouth guards help provide you with an additional level of oral health care for your teeth and gums to help prevent blunt trauma from destroying your smile.
