Watch your diet! Diet is important. Certain foods are damaging to the teeth. The more acidic they are, the more chance there is of erosion, and that can be a problem.
Refined foods adhere more easily to the surface of the teeth, which is why whole wheat bread is better for your teeth than white bread.”
Think before you drink. Alcohol turns into sugar. People drink without thinking much of it, but alcohol will create erosion and damage the structure of the teeth.
Some people give the responsibility for their teeth to their health professional. They think all they need to do is go to the dentist for a cleaning twice a year.
You should be responsible for your own oral health with daily home care.
