10 Tips to Protect Your Teeth

  1. Brush Correctly
    • Brush your teeth for 3 minutes

    • When you brush, position the head of the toothbrush toward your gums at a 45 degree angle. Move the brush back and forth gently in short strokes.
  2. Eat teeth damaging foods sparingly
    • Popcorn kernels, frozen candy bars, and ice cubes can crack your teeth
    • Carbonated drinks erode tooth enamel
    • Coffee and tea stain your teeth
  3. Floss daily
  4. Use an electronic toothbrush
  5. Use your teeth only for chewing food
    • Cracking nut shells, chewing pen caps and tearing off clothing tags can crack enamel, dislodge fillings or loosen teeth
  6. Don't smoke
    • Smokers are 4 times more likely to develop gum disease than non smokers
  7. Don't clinch or grind teeth
    • The pressure from clinching or grinding can add an additional 250 pounds of pressure per square inch of teeth.
    • Clinching and grinding causes premature receding of gums and accelerates gum disease
  8. Know the side effects of Medicines
    • Side effects of some medicines indirectly affect your dental health
  9. Don't ignore other health problems
    • Some stomach conditions like gastrointestinal reflux disease can erode tooth enamel
  10. Exercise Cautiously
    • If necessary, wear a mouth guard to protect teeth
  11. See a dentist twice a year
    • A dentist can help you detect dental problems and fix them before they get worse.
