The summer Olympics are coming up soon, so we thought it was a great time to talk about some of the unique oral health challenges people face this time of year.

That’s especially true for athletes! Studies show that athletes tend to struggle with poor dental health, particularly those who spend a lot of time sweating it out in the gym or are exposed to excessive amounts of chlorine. 

Watch today’s video to hear more about the impact an active lifestyle has on your teeth. But keep in mind, it’s not just world-class athletes who can be affected by dehydration, enamel erosion, and other dental dangers during the hot summer months. 

Visit us for routine dental cleanings and exams, and talk to us about how you can protect your smile all season long!
