Did you know that even the most strict oral care routine could be ruined by inadvertently indulging in certain bad habits?
– Fizzy drinks, sparkling water, and energy drinks contain a nasty combination of sugars and acids. Limit their consumption or drink them through a straw so they aren’t in contact with your teeth for too long
– Dryness in the mouth can cause cavities and tooth decay. Breathing through the mouth when exercising and then having a sugary drink is a bad idea. You should also know that snoring and the regular intake of certain medications cause dryness
– Chewing on ice, teeth grinding, teeth clenching when lifting weights, and tongue piercings can cause enamel erosion. Think twice before you do any of that
It’s never a bad time to let your dentist assess your overall dental health and to start caring for your smile on a daily basis.
