Chewing sugared gum all day.
Cavities, a sore jaw, or damaged bridgework may result. If you must chew, select gum with Xylitol.
Drinking soda and energy drinks.
These sugary, acidic beverages are uncommonly efficient at eroding enamel.
Chewing ice or hard candy.
Your enamel is quite strong. But so are ice and hard candy, and head-to-head, now and again they win, resulting in a cracked tooth.
Maybe you think brushing is adequate. Following brushing with a careful flossing job removes particles 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.
