To help minimize the effects associated with various forms of dental damage in your life, it is important to always establish a risk prevention plan to help minimize any oral accidents or injuries that can arise. Unfortunately, an oral accident can easily destroy your smile and wash away decades of hard work that you put into it. To combat this, always protect your smile during periods of high risk.

If you are involved with any bad habits such as using drugs or smoking or chewing tobacco, be aware of the oral health risks they pose. Not only can they stain teeth and lead it immediate bad breath, but they can also have long-term effects including tooth loss and oral cancer. Avoid any bad habits and bad substances, so your smile can continue to thrive for decades to come.

Another common risk associated with dental damage is due to sports. Although sports are a wonderful activity for improving your physical health, it can lead to injuries if you are not adequately protected. To make sure that your teeth and gums are well protected against the risks of dental damage, always wear the necessary safety equipment such as mouth guards, face masks or helmets.
