Are you aware of the risks associated with not wearing the appropriate safety equipment while playing sports? As a teenager, you may be involved in several high-risk activities that are putting your teeth and gums in harm’s way. If left untreated, an oral accident or injury can destroy your entire smile. To be safe, always wear the necessary safety equipment such as helmets, mouth guards, face masks or any other appliances that can minimize the damage that may arise.
Beyond safety gear and equipment that can help keep your smile safe, be aware of peer pressure risks, and how it can negatively affect your smile during your teen years. If you are commonly bombarded with peer pressure risks such as using drugs or smoking and chewing tobacco, you may eventually give in and suffer the consequences over many years in your life. However, avoid the downfalls and pitfalls of peer pressure by staying strong and avoiding any temptations that come your way. Just remember how bad you will be if you neglect your oral health, and your teeth and gums are destroyed.
