If you would like to maintain a strong and healthy smile this lacrosse season, then our dentist, Dr. Ricky Chung, is more than happy to help you. There are things you should do regularly to care for and protect your teeth and gums while you compete on the field. Unfortunately, you can suffer dental issues and even dental injuries if you’re not careful. So, to help you have the top-notch smile you deserve this lacrosse season, our dentist encourages you to do the following things:

-Drink water instead of sports drinks: This is recommended because sports drinks contain high amounts of sugar, and sugar creates cavities. So, it’s best to drink water instead. You can’t go wrong with a little H2O!

-Wear a mouthguard: A mouthguard is a handy and reliable appliance that can protect your teeth when hard objects hit the mouth. As you play and wear the mouthguard, you can prevent knocked-out teeth, chipped teeth and more.

-Keep up with oral hygiene: Brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, rinsing daily and attending your six-month checkups can help you have a clean and healthy smile. This can help you have the strong teeth and gums you need during the season.
