If you wish for your smile to survive the ages, it is important to care for your teeth at all times beyond brushing and flossing daily. Environmental factors can destroy a lifetime’s worth of work with a single oral accident, so be sure to always exercise caution when it comes to your smile. Keep tooth hazards at bay with these helpful tips:

– Avoid unsafe vices such as drugs and tobacco, as they can all seriously harm your smile.
– If you wear mouth jewelry, be careful of the perils they pose, including being ripped loose, or cracking and chipping teeth.
– Avoid opening products or materials with your mouth, such as cans and soda bottles.
– Contact sports and activities that put your mouth in a place where it can be damaged will increase your likelihood of an oral accident.
– Be careful of the foods you bite into, as some can chip or crack your tooth enamel.
– Chewing on inedible objects such as pens or pen caps can cause microscopic harm to your teeth or even minor malocclusions that knock your teeth out of position.
