Do you want to have a top-notch smile? If so, you need to protect your it from the many dangers out there. Unfortunately, there are many things that can affect the health and strength of your teeth and gums. Our dentist, Dr. Carolyn Walker, encourages you to do everything you can to protect your smile by using the following tricks:

-Wear a mouthguard: A mouthguard can help you prevent knocking out and breaking your teeth when you participate in high-contact sports and activities.

-Use fluoride: Fluoride can protect your smile because it makes the tooth enamel harder. The harder the tooth enamel, the less chance you have of suffering tooth decay or sensitivity.

-Take advantage of dental sealants: Dental sealants cover the back teeth and protect them from bacteria and acid. The sealants are needed because the back teeth are tough to thoroughly clean. Consider having dental sealants placed the next time you come into our office.
