Fads to Avoid Since They Could Lead to Dental Damage

Posted on 7/26/2021 by Evan
Fads to Avoid Since They Could Lead to Dental DamageEvery day we have an opportunity to make choices that will benefit our oral health. Conversely, many people choose lifestyle habits that do not allow their oral health to thrive. It is important to take time to consider if the latest fad will be beneficial to your body before you try it.

A Fad Diet Could Negatively Affect Your Teeth

If you are on a fad diet, you may be eliminating important nutrients your body needs. Those nutrients also build up and fortify your teeth and gums. If you do not eat fresh produce, your teeth and gums may suffer. Choose to include fresh produce in your diet every day.

Tongue Piercing Could Damage Your Teeth

Tongue piercing could damage your teeth. While this fad may not appear to impact your smile, it can over time. Tongue piercing can change your oral habits. Perhaps you form a new habitat of running your tongue jewelry against your teeth. You might like the sound of it at first, but you may be wearing away the enamel on your teeth.

Vaping Affects Your Teeth Too

Vaping can damage your teeth as well. Vaping contains nicotine which negatively affects the gum tissue. In fact, people who vape can lose teeth due to gum disease or tooth decay. Vaping poses great risks to your mouth and your overall health.

Schedule Your Routine Cleaning

Consider all factors if you are going to follow a new fad. Understand the adverse side effects and make good choices. Give us a call or discuss with us at your next appointment if you are unsure how a new fad may affect your oral health. We want to help you have the best possible health as well as the best possible smile.
