You deserve to have a smile that is healthy and beautiful, and our dentist and team encourage you to achieve that smile by maintaining good oral hygiene and having dental checkups twice a year. Good dental habits are key to preventing tooth damage caused by substances and activities that are not healthy to your smile. We suggest that you to avoid following tooth hazards as much as you can to protect the quality of your smile:

– Having bad dental hygiene: Neglecting to brush your teeth twice a day, floss every day, rinse your mouth with mouthwash or visit the dentist regularly, could cause you to suffer many types of dental issues, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Instead, we encourage you to take the time to practice good oral hygiene.

– Chewing on hard objects: If you like to gnaw on pens and pencils, then you put your teeth at risk of cracking. You might not be aware of these cracks forming at first, but as you continue to chew on objects, the cracks can grow until you develop a severe problem.

– Eating foods and drinks that aren’t healthy: Some foods contain sugars and acids that will weaken your teeth because sugar contributes to cavities by helping to create the the acid affects the tooth enamel. Eat a balanced diet with an emphasis on foods that are actually good for your teeth.
