For A Healthier Smile, Stop Doing This

Chewing sugared gum all day.
Cavities, a sore jaw, or weakened bridgework may result. If you must chew, select gum with Xylitol.

Drinking soda and energy drinks.
These sugary, acidic beverages are extremely efficient at weakening enamel.

Chewing ice or hard candy.
Your enamel is quite durable. But so are ice and hard candy, and head-to-head, occasionally they win, resulting in a broken tooth.

Skipping flossing.
Maybe you think brushing is adequate. Following brushing with a careful flossing job cleans away particles 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 919-371-4428 to book an intensive exam and the best deep dental cleaning you can get anywhere. Our exceptional hygienists really are the best!
