At Southern York Smile Care in Shrewsbury we want all of our patients to havethe best possible smiles, and it begins with good dental health. That’s why we advise you to avoid the following:
Chewing sugared gum all day.
Cavities, a sore jaw, or weakened bridgework may result. If you must chew gum, select one sweetened with Xylitol.
Drinking soda and energy drinks.
These sugary, acidic beverages are immensely efficient at damaging enamel.
Chewing ice or hard candy.
Your enamel is quite strong. But so are ice and hard candy, and head-to-head, from time to time they win, resulting in a broken tooth.
Maybe you think brushing is enough. Following brushing with a careful flossing job gets rid of fragments of food and plaque between teeth.
Using a firm bristled toothbrush.
A soft bristled brush is the best tool for the job. Save your firm brush for cleaning the grout around your bathtub.
Delaying dental checkups.
Don’t wait until you feel pain. Call us to book an exam and cleaning.
