New year, new resolutions: For many, the turn of the year is a welcome opportunity to set new sporting goals and think about their health. For us, health starts in the mouth: after all, dental health is an important part of general well-being and is closely linked to the health of the whole body - and therefore also to the performance of athletes.

Teeth and body: a close interaction

Did you know that your teeth and your whole body are functionally closely connected? This means that tension in the facial area can spread to the whole body. Headaches, neck pain and aching joints are the result. And thus a considerable reduction in athletic performance. This is known as "craniomandibular dysfunction", or CMD for short. As your dentist in Freiburg, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of CM D and treat you with a large network of competent partners from the fields of orthopaedics, physiotherapy and orthodontics.

Protect teeth, boost performance

The key to success is a healthy diet. This applies equally to a strong body and healthy teeth and gums.

The wrong diet can lead to a variety of problems in the mouth and teeth. From tooth decay to gum disease and infections in the mouth. These can slow athletes down considerably. Because they spread through the body and can put a serious strain on the immune system. Find out here how you can improve your dental health with a good diet.

In addition to a healthy diet, a thorough dental care routine and good oral hygiene will ensure that it doesn't come to that - and that your dental health doesn't stop you from playing your favorite sport.

In many sports, athletes also expose their teeth to the risk of damage from external influences. For example, through physical contact or falls. To protect your teeth and dentures from damage, we recommend wearing a mouthguard - especially for contact sports.

We wish you a good start to the new year - here's to top sporting performance with beautiful and healthy teeth in 2024!
