Tooth hazards are some of the leading causes of oral accidents and injuries because there are so many ways your smile can be damaged. Everything from your diet to your lifestyle habits can potentially lead to an oral health disaster. With this in mind, it’s always a good idea to think about tooth hazards in your life and access any risk prevention plans you can use to keep your smile safe.

In order to keep optimum oral health, it is important to understand the risks in your life that could potentially cause your teeth harm. Within your diet, numerous substances can not only cause dental erosion, but they can lead to potential tooth slippage, cracks, as well as stains and discolorations. Drinks such as coffee and wines can easily discolor your teeth due to the fact they have deep pigments and tannins which can easily alter your tooth color. Furthermore, wine is known for being extremely acidic which could potentially lead to dental erosion.

To keep your smile safe, avoid unhealthy habits with your teeth and gums that can potentially cause immediate dental damage. This includes chewing on pens, pencils, pen caps, or any other product that is not edible. Furthermore, biting into your nails can have a similar effect. Always avoid using your teeth for this purpose as it can cause chips and cracks and can potentially even knock teeth out. Only use your mouth for eating, as that is all your teeth are equipped to do.

Nobody said it was going to be easy, but the quest for a perfect smile is more in reach with tooth hazard care.
