    Everyday Habits Which May Cause Damage To Your Teeth

    teeth health dentist smileA thorough oral hygiene routine, along with regular check-ups with your dentist, is the best way to preserve a sparkling smile. However, certain everyday habits can be more damaging to your teeth than you might think. Bacteria in your mouth feeds on sugar and produces acid as a result. This then causes damage to the enamel coating on the teeth.

    Saliva helps the teeth by washing away excess sugar and acid. Therefore, anything which dries the mouth out can also be a potential risk.

    – Food and drinks high in sugar allow bacteria to multiply.

    – Snoring, medications and even exercise, can increase the risk of tooth decay, as they cause the mouth to dry out.

    – Biting down on very hard foods and tongue piercings can damage the enamel coating on teeth.

    It all comes down to managing bacteria.
