Introduction
  • Your oral health is important for your overall
    health and wellbeing.
  • Taking care of your teeth, and keeping them
    healthy and strong should be your priority.
  • There are many bad habits which hurt your teeth
    and compromises your oral health.
  • Along with good oral hygiene and regular dental

    maintain your oral health.

Bad Habits Your Dentist Want You to Quit
  • Brushing your teeth for more than 2 minutes or
    brushing with a hard bristled toothbrush.
  • Not flossing at all. Flossing daily removes food
    particles and plaque from hard to reach places.
  • Frequently using over the counter whitening
    products to get whiter teeth. It is advised to go
    for professional teeth whitening to improve your
    smile.
  • Biting your nails. Nail biting is not only
    unhygienic but can chip off your teeth and affect
    your jaw. Also, the germs and bacteria present
    underneath your nail can enter your mouth and
    cause infections.

Bad Habits Your Dentist Want You to Quit
  • Chewing on ice. This habit can erode your tooth
    enamel, fracture your teeth and damage dental
    appliances such as filling, implants and other
    restorations. Opt for a sugarless gum instead of
    ice.
  • Drinking carbonated beverages or sipping soda.
    Sugary drinks or foods create an acidic
    environment in your mouth and put your teeth at a
    higher risk of cavities.
  • Brushing your teeth immediately after eating. It
    is advised to wait at least 30 minutes after
    eating for brushing.
  • Grinding your teeth. Teeth grinding mostly occur
    during sleep due to stress and anxiety and can
    cause a number of dental problems including
    Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. Your dentist
    can suggest a mouth guard to prevent it during
    sleep.
