7 HABITS ...THAT ARE HARMFUL FOR YOUR TEETH

1.NAIL BITING

 Nail biting may be a little less common these days but I still see it quite often. It can cause teeth and fillings to chip off and can also cause wearing off of enamel.


POSSIBLE SOLUTION:- 
Paint the nails with a bitter taste polish. 

2. ACIDIC DRINKS

 Cold drinks and other aerated drinks that is more common than milk or any other liquid in between adults is the main cause that led to wearing off of enamel surface. This helps in decaying process. The sugar content that is too high in it promotes decay.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION :-
Avoid these drinks, have some water through out the day at intervals. Avoid drinking aerated drinks, if must, sip by sip instead drink it in one go and rinse after that to remove acids.

3.ICE CUBE CHEWING
Chewing on any ice cube will not make you "RAMBO."Teeth are meant for chewing but not ice cubes.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION :-
Avoid eating ice cubes.

4. BRUSHING TOO HARD

Brushing too hard can lead to wearing off enamel surface. It creates a notch between teeth margin and gum line causing sensitivity and pain also.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION :-
Use a medium or soft tooth brush. Avoid using it too hard. Its not the physical force that removes plaque, its the technique. Use it in circular motion at an 45 degree angle to teeth and gums. If you cannot control the amount of force, use a electric toothbrush instead.

5. GRINDING AND CLENCHING

Some thing are beyond control. Often patient has a habit of clenching teeth while sleeping. Well one cannot help it after one falls asleep but a "dentist in rohini" like us can definitely help. It can also lead to muscle stiffness or pain.And in extreme cases may also cause joint dysfunction.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION :-
Night guard can help you. visit a "dental clinic in rohini" and you can get it easily fabricated. It helps keeping teeth apart at night.

6. REGULAR SNACKS

Snacks often are rich in carbohydrates that favors the bacteria to act and cause cavities. Avoid frequent snacking.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION:-
Avoid these habits. if you have to eat then nuts are the best solution.

7.USING  TEETH AS TOOLS

Opening up BEER bottles with teeth doesnot sounds good or feels good to your teeth. Teeth are meant for other functions. let them do that only.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION :-
Get a Bottle opener instead.
