We get it. Oral hygiene is probably not something that you find yourself talking to your buddies about on the weekends. You probably don’t watch YouTube videos of teeth cleanings. That’s why Cove Family Dental in Copperas Cove is here to offer you only the information that you really need to know to keep both your mouth and body as healthy as possible.
Your Teeth Are Not Tools
It’s super handy to just have a mouth full of jar-openers and label-peelers and tag-rippers, right? No! Men’s teeth are just as delicate as anyone else’s and you can damage the enamel, leaving them sensitive to both heat and cold. At the worst, you can break off a tooth and need a painful extraction of the pieces left. So stick with tools outside your mouth, please, and save your teeth for food.
Why Do My Teeth Need To Be Aligned?
The only reason people get braces is to improve their smile, right? Wrong! Occlusion, or the alignment of your teeth, is a crucial factor in the health and functionality of your entire mouth. It may not seem like anything more than a cosmetic issue, but malocclusion (misaligned teeth) can cause jaw pain, difficulty eating, jaw popping and more. Your mouth is a finely tuned digestive organ and even the slightest issue with teeth alignment could cause big problems.
