Tooth Hazard Risk Factors

Posted .

Implementing an effective tooth hazard prevention plan is essential to ensure your smile can thrive. This includes limiting unhealthy lifestyle choices that can severely damage your teeth and gums. Oral accidents and injuries can often arise due to lifestyle habits and oral health care techniques.

To help protect your teeth and gums, avoid chewing on inedible products such as pencils, pen caps, or even your nails. These hazards can easily chip and crack your teeth and cause dental damage to occur. Furthermore, within your diet, known tooth hazards can arise in the most unlikely of places. If you’re worried about stains or discolorations, be aware of coffee, wines, and other similar products as they can easily stain your teeth. In addition, wines can be extremely acidic and contribute to erosion.
