As you get older, each passing day is another chance that a risk can occur to damage your teeth and gums. However, it is also another day to enhance your smile and work on your oral health. With a healthy routine, your teeth can effectively last for the rest of your life. The best smiles are possible with tooth hazard prevention. Facts about tooth hazard include:

– A variety of foods and snacks may be a bit too hard on our teeth, resulting in cracks, fractures, split teeth, and chips.

– The products we place in our mouths can harm us, including pens and pen caps, as well as chewing on our nails.

– Never attempt to open objects with your mouth, as this is an easy way to break your teeth or damage your gums.

– Hazardous habits such as smoking and chewing tobacco greatly increase your oral health risks.

– Numerous forms of mouth jewelry can easily crack or chip our teeth, or break off and cause infections, gum damage, and even become choking hazards.

– Contact sports and high-risk activities can be destructive to your oral health.
