For A Healthier Smile, Stop Doing This

Toms River friendly family dentist

In this blog post from Rotem Dental Care in Toms River, we have a few tips that will help you maintain your oral hygiene in between visits to our office.

The list is comprised of things you shouldn’t do:

Chew sugared gum all day.
Cavities, a sore jaw, or damaged bridgework may result. If you must chew gum, select gum with Xylitol. (There are some good ones out there, but you may have to go to a natural foods store to find them.)

Drinking soda and energy drinks.
These sugary, acidic beverages are exceptionally efficient at weakening enamel and causing tooth decay.

Chew ice or hard candy.
Your enamel is pretty tough. But so are ice and hard candy, and head-to-head, sometimes they win, resulting in a chipped tooth.

Skip flossing.
Maybe you think brushing is enough, but it isn’t. You need to get the debris between teeth, which would otherwise form plaque. Your best defense against that is to floss every day.

Use a firm bristled toothbrush.
A soft bristled brush is the best suited tool for the job. Save your firm brush for cleaning the grout around your bathtub.

Delay dental checkups.
Don’t wait until something hurts. Regular visits to our office are the best way to stay on top of your dental health!

At Rotem Dental Care in Toms River, we remind you that your daily oral hygiene regimen is critical, so brush and floss twice a day! And be sure to see us every six months for a cleaning and checkup. Services include general and cosemtic dentistry. Schedule your next appointment today.
