5 Bad Dental Habits Threatening Your Teeth

dca-blog-bad-dental-habits

Face it, we all have a few bad dental habits that we know we need to deal with. Rather than wait until they cause problems and pain, find out how to cure bad dental habits with these savvy smile solutions.

1.    Repeatedly Whitening Teeth

You may think that frequent whitening is needed to maintain your dazzling results when you want whiter teeth. As whitening has increased in popularity, it’s become one of the most common bad dental habits. Overuse of whitening products can cause major mouth pain and sensitivity, so only use them as directed. For the safest and longest-lasting whitening, get a professional treatment from your dentist.

2.    Regularly Grinding Teeth

The bad dental habits of grinding and grating your teeth are called bruxism. This is often caused by stress and happens to many people while they’re sleeping. Since teeth grinding can lead to fractured teeth, headaches, jaw pain, and earaches, you need to talk to your dentist about dealing with this painful dental problem.

3.    Roughly Brushing Teeth

Brushing is one of the basics of good dental care, but brushing your teeth too roughly is one of the worst bad dental habits because it can harm the very tooth enamel that you should be trying to protect and preserve. When it comes to how to cure bad dental habits like this, dentists recommend using soft-bristled toothbrushes and brushing gently. Plus, try not to brush more than three times a day.

4.    Recklessly Chewing on Ice

Many people find that chewing on ice is an enjoyable way to cool down on a hot day or relieve tension when feeling stress. However, it’s very tough on your teeth and can cause them to chip, crack, or break. It can also erode your tooth enamel and increase your risk of major dental care problems.

5.    Routinely Reaching For Staining Drinks

Beverages such as cola, coffee, and wine can cause severe staining on teeth. According to research, coffee stains are some of the toughest to remove because they’re resistant to regular brushing. Because these stains tend to be sticky, they can attract bacteria in the mouth and lead to dental problems. Try to cut down on drinking these darker beverages and always rinse your mouth with water after drinking them to help wash away some of the stains.
