Soon, people everywhere will be tuned in to the summer Olympics to see world-class athletes competing for a coveted spot on the podium and in the history book of sports.

But studies suggest that if they gave Olympic medals for oral health, many of them might not make the cut.

That’s because athletes tend to suffer from more problems like tooth decay, enamel erosion, and cavities than non-athletes. A physically active lifestyle can pose oral health risks you may not have considered before, especially during the hot summer months.

Dehydration, chlorine, and other dental dangers don’t have to hurt your smile, though. Visit us for a dental cleaning and exam so we can make sure your teeth and gums are safe and healthy this season!
