Things That Are Bad For Your Teeth

Video taken from the channel: Electric Teeth


Numerous studies and dental professionals have found that vigorous exercise can harm teeth, gums, and the jaw without proper techniques or equipment being used. The problems often start with jaw-clenching or teeth-grinding. Both are common during high-intensity workouts or certain demanding sports. But researchers noted the results should be something of a heads up and people who exercise may want to employ more preventative measures for protecting their teeth. Here are some reasons athletes might be increasing their oral health risks and tactics for better preventio.

Is Exercise Bad for Your Teeth? Results from a new study suggest athletes may be at risk for dental problems. Exercise is supposed to be good for you.

However after reading an article in the New York Times, I found out that exercise can in fact, be bad for your teeth. After olympians mouths were examined in 2012, many of them were found to have “poor oral health” but there was no link as to why. But is it possible that exercise is actually bad for your teeth? A recent study seems to suggest so, but we don’t recommend that you stop exercising. A much better approach for your oral health is to maintain a schedule of regular professional dental cleanings and practice good oral hygiene.

Numerous studies and dental professionals have found that vigorous exercise can harm teeth, gums and the jaw without proper techniques or equipment being used. The problems often start with jaw-clenching or teeth-grinding. Both are common during high-intensity workouts or certain demanding sports. HEIDELBERG, Germany — A study published in The Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports says vigorous exercise is good for virtually every part of the body — except perhaps the teeth. Gum disease or periodontitis, is when harmful bacteria inflame gums.

A Journal of Dentistry study in 2005 found that regular exercise lowers the risk of gum disease. In fact, it found that participants who never smoked and who exercised regularly were 54% less likely to have periodontitis compared to those who did not exercise. It’s no secret that regular exercise has countless physical and mental benefits.

But what should be a respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life can be a painful undertaking when you have mouth problems during your workout regimen. If you maintain an active lifestyle, you might unknowingly put your teeth in harm’s way. It’s a silicone ball that molds to your teeth.

You simply bite down on it for exercise. The company says the ball offers 40 or more pounds of resistance, depending on which model you’re using.

In the short term, following a specific workout program can make some changes to your body, but for the best results, exercise has to become a habit, one that you practice for the rest of your life, like brushing your teeth or putting on some clothes before leaving the house.
