Back To School Dental Tips For Students

School can make all students crazy busy with tests, short deadlines, and the need to find time to deal with a social life. This makes it is easy to forget about the dentist and to take care of our teeth. Keeping up with your dental health is an easy way to cut down on the cost of a dentist trip, and keeps your teeth healthy. Here are some tips to help you stay on top of your teeth when you are at school.

Watch What You Drink.

We all know that some drinks are going to stain our teeth, and that the stains can only be removed by a dentist or one of those at home kits. However, drinks are also able to cause tooth decay. The best thing to do is to avoid many of the sugary cocktails, and switch red wines for white wines. Coffee is another staining drink, so try to rinse your mouth out after every cup to lower the chances of your teeth being stained.

Have your dentist whiten your teeth.

If you are planning to have you teeth whiten, the best tip is to go to the dentist’s office to have the whitening done. The cheap products that you are able to buy off shelves at most stores can damage the enamel if you are using them a lot or in the wrong way. Also, the process that is done by dentists lasts longer, works immediately and doesn’t damage your teeth.

Think twice about Mouth piercing

While a tongue and lip piercing can be an aesthetic choice, many times it is better to avoid them. Most of the time they lead to chipped teeth. These piercings are also more likely to become infected than nearly all other piercings.

Keep an eye on your stress level

When you are stressed out, you are more likely to grind your teeth. Grinding your teeth can lead to tooth damage, and intense pain in the jaw. Try to make sure that you are relaxed before bed, and take breaks during studying. If you know that you are grinding your teeth in your sleep, using a grind guide can help until you are able to lower the stress levels that you have.


Dental checkups are very important, no matter how old you are. You should have a check-up every six months. Even though it may not seem like there is anything wrong with your teeth, not all problems are visual.
