The team at Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte – Dr. Christopher A. Bowman would like to discuss how to have a healthy smile. Here is a list of what NOT to do.
Chewing sugared gum all day.
Cavities, a sore jaw, or issues with your bridgework may result. If you must chew, select gum with Xylitol.
Drinking soda and energy drinks.
These sugary, acidic beverages erode enamel and bathe your mouth in sugar, which leads to cavities.
Chewing ice or hard candy.
Your enamel is quite hard. But so are ice and hard candy, and head-to-head, occasionally they win, resulting in a broken tooth.
Maybe you think brushing is enough. Following brushing with a careful flossing job cleans away particles 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.
