Don’t Let Intense Training Hurt Your Teeth

Whether you’ve resolved to exercise more regularly or to start training for a marathon, your fitness goals for the new year shouldn’t have to put your teeth and gums at risk.

An active lifestyle is certainly good for your overall health, but when you’re sweating it out in the gym, you face unique dental problems like tooth decay, cavities, dry mouth, gum disease, and more. 

To learn more about the relationship between fitness and oral health, check out today’s video where several elite athletes talk about how intense training compels them to take extra precautions when it comes to protecting their teeth and gums.

Maybe you aren’t planning on running a marathon or qualifying for an Olympic sport this year, but you don’t have to be an athletic champion to feel the effects of extra time in the gym or on the track. 

Be sure to stay well-hydrated with lots of water, protect your teeth with a custom mouthguard, keep up with your daily oral hygiene routine, and as always, visit your Charlotte, NC dentist every six months for a checkup!
