This message from Koch Aesthetic Dentistry in Birmingham is about tooth enamel, and its role in good dental health.
Your tooth enamel is uniquely suited to protect your teeth. If you keep your tooth enamel healthy, you can avoid many dental ailments. You won’t get cavities. Your teeth will be less likely to chip or crack. You will avoid many causes of tooth stains.
It’s best to form enamel-healthy habits when you’re young.
Teach your son or daughter to protect their tooth enamel. There are a multitude of collateral health benefits as well.
For Healthy Tooth Enamel, Avoid The Following
Frequently Eating Sticky Food
Gummy candy, protein bars, and dried fruit can chip teeth.
Chewing On Hard Foods
For example, beef jerky and hard or stale bread.
If you grind your teeth, talk about it with us. It can cause headaches, tooth damage, and gum recession. An appliance can guard your enamel.
Drinking Anything Besides Water Frequently
If your teeth are awash in carbonated beverages (sugared or diet), juice, coffee, or sports drinks consistently, your enamel will suffer from the acids and sugar.
Playing Sports Without a Mouthguard
Sports pose a major risk of tooth damage. Custom-fitted mouthguards from your dentist are more comfortable than the boil-and-bite type.
