Hi! As you may know teeth are really important to our lives. They have a useful functionality due to the fact that they serve for chewing and eating. They also help with speech. But that is not all, they also have an aesthetic purpose. Nothing can speak out confidence and healthiness than a white, shining smile. And if you want all of this, you have to make sure that you are taking good care of your teeth. Remember they don’t last all your life with bad caring. Habits are important as well.
Many of us know that we need a good oral care routine to preserve our teeth really nice and clean. We know the drill, brushing twice a day, using dental floss and mouthwash to keep them in top condition. But what about certain habits? What we do outside of these things also matters a lot for their health.
It may sound obvious. But I’m certain that most of you guys are ignoring some habits that are slowly wrecking your teeth and ruining your smile. Let’s see ahead what are these habits so we can know what to avoid.
Smoking and tobacco
This is a given. Smoking stains your teeth pretty bad. They also contribute to give you bad breath. So I think is pretty safe to say that if you don’t want to scare away people when you open your mouth you should stop smoking as soon as possible. You have to take into account all the diseases it can cause you. From a simple gingivitis and cavities to oral and lung cancer. Please, take care of your body because life can be short sometimes.
A fine trick to stop this nasty habit is to get those special chewing gum. You can find them at really low prices if you buy them in a bunch at Los Algodones pharmacies. A nicotine patch is also a really good item to purchase to quit smoking. My aunt got one in Los Algodones and was cigarettes free in a couple of months.
Grinding your teeth
Grinding your teeth is also known as Bruxism. It can be consciously when you make it a habit to grind your teeth your teeth together when worry or anxious. There are many factors that can lead to bruxism, even it can turn into a unconscious habit. It is really a hard habit to shake of if the patient has been doing it for so long, but not impossible. You just have to believe in yourself and train you to not doing it or relying on it.
The most common solution to stop grinding our teeth is using a night guard. We have excellence prices in night guard at Dental Solutions Los Algodones. Feel free to give us a call to get your night guard and stop grinding your teeth. Another thing you can do to stop this habit is to get therapy. My brother had bruxism and with time, patient and the help of a good therapy he is now free from this curse.
Not visiting your dentist
If you think you can have perfect teeth just by yourself and dental care you are just plain wrong. The help of a professional dentist is mandatory to keep your teeth nice and perfect. They are trained to take care of them and have all the tools and knowledge to help you in any situation. I suggest going to the dentist at least twice a year to make sure everything is okay and get a nice deep cleaning.
And if you visit us at Dental Solutions in Los ALgodones Mexico it would be even better. We have CAT/CAD Scan technology and a staff really well prepared and fluent in English!
