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 exceptionally efficient at damaging enamel.
Chewing ice or hard candy.
Your enamel is quite hard. But so are ice and hard candy, and head-to-head, from time to time they win, resulting in a broken tooth.
Maybe you think brushing is enough. Following brushing with a conscientious flossing job cleans away bits of food and plaque between teeth.
Using a firm bristled toothbrush.
A soft-bristled brush is a right tool for the job. Save your firm brush for cleaning the grout around your bathtub.
