Brushing and flossing twice a day is the best thing you can do for your dental health. The team at Dental Care Today in Fishers reminds you that other activities aren’t so good, such as…
Chewing sugared gum all day.
Cavities, a sore jaw, or damaged bridgework may result. If you must chew, select gum with Xylitol.
Drinking soda and energy drinks.
These sugary, acidic beverages are very efficient at weakening enamel.
Chewing ice or hard candy.
Your enamel is quite durable. But so are ice and hard candy, and head-to-head, sometimes they win, resulting in a cracked tooth.
Maybe you think brushing is satisfactory. Following brushing with an attentive flossing job cleans away fragments of food and plaque between teeth.
Using a firm bristled toothbrush.
A soft bristled brush is the best suited tool for the job. Save your firm brush for cleaning the grout around your bathtub.
Delaying dental checkups.
Don’t wait until something hurts. Call Dental Care Today to book an exam and cleaning. Our hygienists really are the best!
