Especially for Braces Wearers
Do you absent-mindedly commit Tooth Abuse? These are habits definitely off limits for the health of your teeth:
- Don’t chomp on a toothpick—it can wear teeth down and get caught in your braces.
- Stop chewing your nails, pens and pencils—it’s hard on teeth and gums.
- Leave the ice in your drink? Chewing ice can crack teeth and fillings, and pop wires in braces.
- Don’t consume something very hot just after something very cold. The rapid expansion and contraction can crack dental enamel.
Treat your teeth right!
