Chewing sugared gum all day.
Cavities, a sore jaw, or weakened bridgework may result. If you must chew, select gum with Xylitol.
Drinking soda and energy drinks.
These sugary, acidic beverages are extremely 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 broken tooth.
Maybe you think brushing is enough. Following brushing with an attentive flossing job removes fragments of food and plaque between teeth.
Using a firm bristled toothbrush.
A soft-bristled brush is the most appropriate tool for the job. Save your firm brush for cleaning the grout around your bathtub.
