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 extremely efficient at eroding enamel.
Chewing ice or hard candy.
Your enamel is quite hard. But so are ice and hard candy, and head-to-head, sometimes they win, resulting in a cracked tooth.
Maybe you think brushing is adequate. 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 right tool for the job. Save your firm brush for cleaning the grout around your bathtub.
