Caring for your smile every day is essential to ensure your teeth can survive a lifetime’s worth of happiness. To ensure your teeth and gums remain safe, always effectively avoid unhealthy habits and lifestyle choices that contain tooth hazards known to cause damage if you’re not careful.

Did you know that chewing on inedible products can destroy your smile easily by chipping and cracking teeth? This includes biting your nails or chewing on pencils, pen caps, or other similar products. In addition, you should avoid unhealthy habits that can severely hinder your oral health and stain your teeth. This can include smoking and chewing tobacco. Furthermore, exercise caution with any products that you are consuming in your diet. By drinking coffee and wines, you can increase your risk for tooth stains and discolorations. In addition, wines tend to be highly acidic and can raise your risk of dental erosion. Thus, with all products, exercise caution with anything that you consume. For additional help with tooth hazard prevention, visit your dentist for a comprehensive examination.
