5 Worst Behaviors for Teeth

5 Worst Behaviors for Teeth

Healthy and sparkling teeth are one of the biggest blessings of God. They not only add value in your personality but also perform the job of food chewing. Brushing and flossing teeth regularly at least twice a day) are necessary to maintain the health and shine of the teeth but there are many things we do unknowingly which put all efforts into a downward spiral. Here we are going to bring in the limelight the five common but worst behaviors for teeth.

      Before                     After

  • Use of Wrong Brush

Always use soft-bristled or medium, high quality, and multi-tufted brush to ensure the health of your teeth. Hard and rough brush causes to damage and bleed the gums. It also removes enamel from the teeth that is our upper protective layer on teeth.

  • Brushing Too Forcefully

Brushing too forcefully and too often are some other ways to damage your teeth. Forceful brushing irritates gums and abrasion damages the tooth root. Ask Dr.Jean-Jacques Edderai or any of our hygienists to tell you the right technique of brushing as gentle whisking is required to remove stranded food particles and bacterial deposits mixed in.

  • Crunching and Sucking

Crunching cold and brittle things leave microscopic cracks or linear fractures on your teeth. The temperature of cold things is harmful for teeth and weakens enamel that results in major teeth problems. Crushed ice is extremely harmful and increases the risks of major fractures. Sipping soda for many hours is another fatal habit of teeth decay as they are acidic in nature that chemically reacts with enamel weakening its bodily structure.

  • Grinding and Clenching

Some people grind their teeth while sleeping and this habit triggers teeth problems, headache and migraines. Bruxing is a dental term used for this habit in which the person exerts immense pressure on teeth while sleeping or even unconsciously awake. Medications as well as orthopedic repositioning appliances prescribed in our office for pain management treatment and some other psychological therapies are helpful for it.

  • Excessive Mouth Dryness

Saliva is extremely important for teeth as it contains some minerals which ensure the protection of your teeth and prevent enamel damage. Dry mouth badly affect your teeth and multiplies the risks of bad breath, tooth decay, and enamel erosion. Moreover, the presence of saliva neutralizes acidity of the mouth that deteriorates enamel.

Small and unknowing habits shorten the life of your teeth and trigger severe pain and other medical problems. Avoid the excess use of coffee and soda drinks. Never use your teeth as a tool for ripping or tearing things apart.

Its never too late, before addressing any issue related to your smile, gums, teeth, or other oral problems consult with Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai. A dental prophylaxis or cleaning including our check-up every three to four months will allow Dr. Edderai to keep a watchful eye on your oral health and prevent cavities or minor problem before they start.
