How To Sidestep Common Oral Care Mistakes

misc dental 2

From skipping flossing to using an old, worn toothbrush, failing to take care of your teeth can have terrible—and ultimately costly—consequences. Bad habits will eventually take their toll on your smile.

Because of this, it is important to be aware of potential mistakes you might be making. For example…

1. Ignoring Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity won’t just disappear. Buying specialized toothpaste, researching in-office treatments and avoiding triggers can make all the difference.

2. Not Minding Food Temperatures

Taking a bite of a piping hot snack before sipping an icy beverage may not seem like a big deal, but it can actually damage your pearly whites! 

3. Ignoring Your Dentist’s Advice

Much like lying to your dentist, failing to heed his or her recommendations will likely lead to more dental disasters. If you are unsure of how to implement their tips into your daily routine, just ask!
