Don’t Let Poor Oral Health Take You Out of the Game

Published on April 5, 2019

This article from Kernagis Dental Excellence in Tampa about the growing body of evidence that emphasizes the importance of good dental health.

A recent study cited in the British Journal of Sports Medicine explored how poor dental health affects athletic performance at the elite level.

“More than 40% of athletes were bothered by their oral health with 28% reporting an impact on quality of life and 18% on training and performance,” the Journal noted.

The dental problems experienced by Olympians and professional athletes are no different than those found in the general population: tooth decay, dental erosion, periodontal disease, and inflammation around partially erupted wisdom teeth. It’s important to note that these issues are largely preventable.

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.

Whether you are an Olympic runner or a busy working mom, dental health affects your overall health and quality of life. Don’t let your performance suffer because of poor dental health.

If it has been a while since you’ve been to the dentist, we invite you to schedule a checkup with Kernagis Dental Excellence in Tampa right away. Services include family and cosmetic dentistry. Call for an appointment today!
