There’s something thrilling about watching the summer Olympics, and in just a few weeks, we’ll be tuning in to watch world-class athletes compete. With their incredible strength and skill, we’ll cheer them on as they compete for the most coveted victory in sports.

But when you watch today’s video, you’ll hear why these same athletes probably wouldn’t be winning any medals when it came to their teeth and gums.

Studies show a connection between athletes and poor oral health, and you’ll discover in the video what sort of unique risks we face with lots of exercise and training.

During the hot summer months, however, you don’t have to let your efforts to stay physically fit lead to problems like dehydration and dry mouth, cavities, and enamel erosion.

You can keep up with your routine dental cleanings and exams, wear custom athletic mouthguards, and more, to protect your smile!
