5 Things That Can Destroy A Healthy Smile

#1 – Not Flossing

Brushing your teeth twice a day is important. But did you know that flossing at least once a day is just as important to a healthy smile. Flossing removes cavity-causing bacteria left behind from small particles of food that get stuck between teeth. Although bleeding and irritation sometimes can occur when you first start flossing, it’s important to keep at it. Your gums will toughen up and your smile will be better for it.

#2 – Brushing Too Soon After Eating

Consuming acidic foods and drinks, such as sports and energy drinks, citrus fruits, wine, and tomatoes, can erode tooth enamel—the glossy outer layer of the tooth. Brushing your teeth too soon after eating and drinking these items can cause more damage because you are essentially brushing the acid into the teeth, not getting rid of it. Instead, you should rinse your mouth with water after consuming acidic foods and beverages and wait at least 30 minutes before brushing.

#3 – Not Replacing Your Toothbrush Often Enough

Not only are old toothbrushes ineffective, but they also harbor harmful bacteria that can cause infections. Toothbrushes should be changed every three to four months. It’s also important to change your toothbrush after you’ve been sick.

#4 – Excessively Bleaching Your Teeth

Overzealous bleaching can cause your teeth to look unnaturally white and increase tooth sensitivity. Before using an at-home bleaching product, talk to Dr. Jackie.

#5 – Using A Hard-Bristled Toothbrush

A hard-bristled toothbrush coupled with an aggressive brushing technique can cause irreversible damage. Use a soft toothbrush and gently brush your teeth at a 45-degree angle, in a circular motion. Using a back-and-forth, sawing motion causes the gums to recede, and can expose the root of the tooth, making teeth extremely sensitive and unattractive. An electric toothbrush is a better alternative.
