Don’t Let Poor Oral Health Take You Out Of The Game

Brandon FL cosmetic dental and tooth implants

It’s hard to win a gold medal if you have a toothache. A recent study cited in the British Journal of Sports Medicine explored how poor oral health affects athletic performance at the elite level. In fact, it found that “more than 40 percent of athletes were bothered by their oral health with 28 percent reporting an impact on quality of life and 18 percent on training and performance.”

The dental problems experienced by Olympians and professional athletes are not any different than those found in the general population: tooth decay, dental erosion, periodontal disease, and inflammation around partially erupted wisdom teeth. It’s essential to note that these problems are largely preventable. And when they do, Dr. Jeff Bynum, and our team at Five Star Dental Care in the Tampa and Valrico, Florida areas can help.

Athletes are also at risk for mouth injuries suffered while competing or training.  Tooth trauma can prevent injured athletes from competing in the short term and cause ongoing complications down the road. A custom mouthguard may provide the protection that you need to stay on top of your game!

Whether you are an Olympic runner or a busy Valrico working parent who seems to be running all the time, dental health affects your overall health and quality of life. Don’t let your performance suffer because of poor oral health Dr. Bynum and our entire team provide a vast array of general and cosmetic dental treatments, including restorative dentistry, emergency dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. If it has been a while since you have had a dental exam, we invite you to schedule a check-up and cleaning by contacting us today at Five Star Dental Care at 813-653-2273.
