The Things That Can Damage and Affect Your Smile

Posted .

If you want a top-notch smile and oral health, then there are things you need to do on a regular basis to care for the teeth and gums. Unfortunately, there are many things that attack and harm the smile, which might make caring for the mouth a bit difficult. However, there is no need to worry. Our dentist, Dr. Jim D. Nored, is more than happy to help you. It’s best to keep up on oral hygiene, attend your checkups every six months, and avoid the things that harm the smile. Those things are:

-Having poor oral hygiene: If you don’t brush (twice a day), floss (once a day), rinse (once a day), and attend your checkups (every six months), then your smile can be vulnerable to many dental issues, like cavities and periodontal disease. It’s very important to have good oral hygiene.

-Chewing on pens and pencils: Chewing on tough things can harm your teeth because it can create small cracks in the enamel. As you continue to chew, the crack can get bigger and bigger, which can result in a fully damaged tooth.

-Consuming foods and drinks that harm the smile: The harmful products include those that are acidic and sugary. If you consume these foods and drinks regularly, you can suffer enamel erosion and cavities.
