Tip: Keep Up With Your Preventive Care!
If you don’t want to break a tooth, then you want to remember to keep your teeth super strong. How do you do that, you ask? Protecting your teeth and ensuring their strength simply means keeping them healthy. You do this by practicing the best preventive dental care that you can. You brush every day, two times daily, with fluoridated toothpaste. You floss every day, doing a thorough job. You see us for cleanings and checkups, too!
Tip: Don’t Overload Your Smile
You’re going to want to be careful to avoid overloading your smile. Don’t ask it to withstand lots of pressure or you could break a tooth or multiple teeth. Remember that your teeth aren’t invincible. They’re strong, of course, but biting into something hard or carrying something with your mouth may lead to damage.
Tip: If It’s Not Food, Keep It Away
Things that you should be placing in your mouth? Your toothbrush, dental floss, or food that’s easy enough to bite into. Stuff you shouldn’t be placing anywhere near your teeth? Eyeglasses, grocery bags, the straps of your tote bag, ice, etc. Just remind yourself that you’re headed for a broken tooth and the need for restorations if you’re asking more of your teeth than you’re supposed to.
Tip: Treat Problems Now, Not Later
Prevention goes quite a long way with helping you keep your smile safe and strong. However, remember that if any problems do develop, you want to seek immediate care (such as a filling for a cavity) to repair any damage, thereby restoring structure, well being, and strength. Otherwise, your damage tooth becomes much more likely to become broken.
