Whether they call you “the little ripper” or “newbie,” keep your smile safe on the slopes. Safely shred the “gnar pow,” with these tips:
1. Slalom Racers
Slalom racers move between gates at high speeds. To cut time, athletes take close turns and hit the poles or gates. Chin guards keep athletes’ faces safe, making them an important piece of protective gear for the face and mouth.
Freestylers live to hit the rails or catch big air in the park, and need as much oral protection as slalom racers. Since teeth can exert pressure that is equivalent to 500 pounds per square inch while clenching, just think of the amount of pressure freestylers experience. Using a mouthguard can help prevent cracked teeth.
For lodgers, staying cozy with cocoa and cocktails in hand, is all in a days work. To keep that socializing smile bright, opt for lighter drinks to prevent staining.
If you find yourself at any one of Idaho’s top notch ski resorts, keep your pearly whites protected. Use proper gear and our tooth-friendly tips during the cold season.
