Chewing sugared gum all day.
Cavities, a sore jaw, or weakened bridgework may result. If you must chew, select gum with Xylitol.
Drinking soda and energy drinks.
These sugary, acidic beverages are immensely efficient at weakening enamel.
Chewing ice or hard candy.
Your enamel is quite hard. But so are ice and hard candy, and head-to-head, now and again they win, resulting in a chipped tooth.
Maybe you think brushing is adequate. Following brushing with a careful flossing job gets rid of particles 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.
