STOP Before You Ruin Your Smile

 

Your teeth are strong, but they can still be damaged. Fortunately, we can restore your chips, cracks, cavities, and other problems caused by poor dental care.

 

Biting Hard Objects

Your teeth are strong and designed to chew, but crunching down on hard objects may cause chips, cracks, or fractures. Crushing ice cubes, biting nails, chewing pens, and eating hard candy all place unnecessary pressure and force on your teeth. In addition, if you frequently clench or grind your teeth, you will be forcing your teeth to crush against each other. This can wear out your teeth and create problems with your TMJ joints.

 

Poor Diet Choices

The foods you eat greatly impact your smile. Dark-colored foods and beverages can stain your teeth, acidic items can erode your enamel, and sugary treats can decay your teeth. It’s important to consume the proper nutrients you need to keep your teeth and body strong and healthy. If a poor diet weakens your smile, our dental clinic offers the cosmetic and restorative procedures you need to repair your grin.

 

Incorrect Dental Hygiene

Brushing and flossing your teeth properly will help keep your mouth clean and strong to fight dental disasters. You should brush your teeth at least twice a day—for three minutes each time—and floss daily and thoroughly.
