Register with your dentist* for a free Patient Activation Code. Don’t let fear, anxiety, embarrassment, or past experience stop you from enjoying excellent dental health.
No one wants cavities...
Or gum disease...
Or to lose their teeth...
And, going to the dentist – only when you have a toothache – is not the best strategy.
You’ve seen the headlines: poor dental health is associated with heart disease, dementia, adverse pregnancy outcomes, and more. The research backs this up, yet nearly 32% of us are deficient in dental care.
It’s really not your fault. Fear, anxiety, and embarrassment keep us from getting the help we need. Most of us were never taught the proper skills and habits for effective dental care. It’s very likely you were handed a toothbrush and told to “just brush your teeth”.
Consider this: one-fourth of all adults in the US, who are 65+, have lost all of their teeth.
And: nearly 32% percent of all people are deficient in dental care.
Do you think they might have passed on their dental hygiene habits to their kids?
You can stop the cycle of poor dental health and take charge.
Dental Athlete, together with your dental team, will help you overcome dental anxiety and fear, stop nighttime teeth grinding (bruxism), and develop the right habits and correct techniques for healthy teeth and gums.
Dental Anxiety and Fear
Do you suffer from dental anxiety and fear? You’re not alone. Nearly 75% of people surveyed were considered dentally phobic – even for simple checkups.
Dental anxiety and fear prevent you from getting the help you need. It makes you avoid going to the dentist and creates problems that ultimately require much more extensive treatments – making your fear worse!
Dental Athlete, together with your dental team, will help you get dental anxiety and fear under control, put you in charge of your dental health, and improve your quality of life.
Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)
Do you ever wake up with a headache, soreness in your jaw, or your jaw muscles feeling tight, tired, or even locked?
Has your sleep-partner mentioned that you make disturbing sounds with your teeth while you’re sleeping?
You could be grinding your teeth while you sleep.
It’s called bruxism and it’s quite common. More than 85% of the population will experience this and more than 31% of the population will suffer with it on a regular basis.
It’s a hidden problem because people don’t realize the cause is dental. If left untreated, it can cause flattened, fractured, chipped, or loose teeth. It can wear away your tooth enamel and expose the deeper layers of your teeth to pain and damage. It also disturbs your sleep and can even disturb your sleep partner.
Dental Athlete, together with your dental team, will help you put an end to teeth grinding. It will help you fall asleep faster, sleep more soundly and deeply, and wake up refreshed and without pain caused by dental grinding.
Three Essentials to Dental Health
Fresh breath is great and not having cavities is good too.
What about heart disease, diabetes, dementia, brain abscesses, Alzheimer’s disease, and adverse pregnancy outcomes?
As researchers find more associations between gum disease and various systemic conditions, the need for good dental hygiene and care becomes very clear.
You tell yourself that you should brush and floss, but it never really works out. It’s not your fault. So much of what people think they know about dental health is wrong or incomplete.
Brushing and flossing shouldn’t be painful, difficult, or damaging. But, if you don’t have the right information, techniques, habits, and coaching, you could be doing more harm than good.
When you take care of your teeth, you are taking care of your health.
Dental Athlete, together with your dental team, will help you build the right habits and the correct techniques to get your teeth and gums into a healthy condition.
