Chewing sugared gum all day.
Cavities, a sore jaw, or broken bridgework may result. If you must chew, select gum with Xylitol.
Drinking soda and energy drinks.
These sugary, acidic beverages are extremely 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 an attentive flossing job eliminates fragments of food and plaque between teeth.
Using a firm bristled toothbrush.
A soft-bristled brush is the best tool for the job. Save your firm brush for cleaning the grout around your bathtub.
