Tooth hazards can arise in various ways. Not only can your diet lead to an increase in tooth hazards such as dental erosion and tooth decay, but so to can daily lifestyle choices and products in our day-to-day life. Because of this, you should always effectively practice tooth hazard prevention. Make sure you’re doing everything you can to keep your smile safe from any oral accidents and injuries that can arise due to tooth hazards.
Exercise caution with any unhealthy habits in your life as they can easily contribute to dental damage. Be aware that drinking products such as coffee and wines can potentially stain and discolor teeth. In addition, avoid unhealthy habit such as smoking or chewing tobacco as they can also stain teeth and lead to further oral health ailments as well. Furthermore, known tooth hazards occur by chewing on inedible products including biting your nails and chewing on pencils and pen caps. This habit can potentially lead to teeth chipping and cracking, so avoid these hazards as much as possible.
