Although you may brush your teeth twice daily there are many other factors that may be ruining your teeth. Keep your smile in tip top condition by bearing the following advice in mind.
– Avoid acidic/sugary/carbonated drinks as well as sugary food, as these feed the bacteria that naturally occur in your mouth; if you suffer from acid reflux make sure you get this treated
– Avoid chewing on hard items such as candy or ice and wear a mouth-guard if you’re prone to grinding your teeth; if you have a tongue piercing it is advisable to wear a mouth-guard while exercising to avoid cracking or chipping your teeth
– Workouts, snoring and some medications (e.g. medications for allergies, pain and depression) can lead to a dry mouth which increases the risk of developing tooth decay
Speak to your dentist if you have any concerns.
