Six Things YOU May be Doing
Every Day that CAN
Destroy YOUR Teeth.

   

So, which one of these are you guilty of?

Your teeth, your smile speak volumes to the world. Teeth are strong but they are no match for abuse, misuse or neglect. Here are five things YOU may be doing every day without realizing, that can destroy your teeth.

1. Use your teeth as tools

Using your teeth to open nut shells, beer bottles, packages, wrappers, cut tape, thread and other objects can seriously damage your teeth. Such habits create invisible micro-fractures in your teeth. With time these micro-fractures will turn into bigger cracks that can pop out fillings, chip and break your teeth.

Keep your smile beautiful. Use your teeth only for what they were meant to do - chewing food. Use the proper tools [scissors etc.] for everything else.

2. Crushing Ice

But, it's only water! Wrong! Chewing on ice, hard candy, pencils, pens, fingernails and other objects also creates micro-fractures which may lead to cracked and/or broken teeth. These can be difficult to fix and can lead to more serious problems.

3. Drinking soda, sports drinks and fruit juices

These drinks usually contain large amounts of sugar or acid. The acids in foods like orange juice, lemons, wine, soda and sports drinks will wear away your enamel. Once it's gone, it's gone. It won't grow back. Make healthier choices. But if you can't stay away, reduce your intake and drink water immediately after to neutralise the acid attack.

4. Grinding and Clenching

Tooth grinding and clenching can seriously damage your teeth. The constant pressure placed on the teeth can cause tooth fractures and wear making you look 10 to 20 years older. Most often people grind in their sleep so they are not even aware they are doing it.

5. Using the wrong toothbrush

The harder the bristles on a toothbrush - the better the toothbrush. Right? Wrong! Just the opposite. Using a toothbrush with anything but soft or ultra-soft bristles can actually cause gums to recede, bone loss, exposed roots, decay and open the door for other oral health problems.

6. Skipping the dentist

So you brush and floss daily and adhere to all the recommended oral care tips, but you skip your dental cleanings and other dental appointments. Not going for your cleanings or other essential dental treatments is the same as not doing anything at all and will come back to haunt you. Make your efforts count and keep your mouth gorgeous. Go see your dentist when it's time! And if that is us, GREAT!

If you have been doing one or more of these things, stop and set up an appointment with us. We can help strengthen your teeth and make them healthy again.

Your smile is for life.
It's worth taking care of.
