Don’t Want To Break A Tooth? No Problem!

Mar 9th, 2017 | By | Category: Oral Health

If one of your fears when it comes to your oral health is breaking a tooth, this is perfectly understandable. The idea of going through this trauma and then having to seek out help to repair it doesn’t sound like very much fun. While it’s entirely true that occasionally, accidents just occur, this is one of those issues that you can pretty easily prevent from happening. Curious about how to plan out your dental care just right, so teeth stay strong and intact? We can help you. Fortunately the advice is anything but complicated.

Avoid Too Hard, Crunchy, Chewy, Sticky

Foods that are extremely hard, very crunchy, very chewy, or too sticky are some major culprits in the world of broken teeth. While you don’t have to completely cut hard, crunchy, chewy, or sticky foods out of your diet altogether, heed our advice: When your instincts tell you that something might be too much for your teeth to break down with ease, the only thing that’s going to end up breaking down is your tooth! Do your best to make wise, simple choices for your oral health.

Stick With Routine Care (At Home And With Us)

When you follow our instructions for optimal oral health, you prevent a lot of problems including broken teeth. Remember that brushing with fluoridated toothpaste and flossing every day keeps teeth strong, free of decay, and in one piece. Follow that up with preventive visits with us, and you’ve got yourself some very beneficial prevention so teeth do not weaken.

Don’t Avoid Restorative Care

Need a filling? Need a crown? When you need some restorative care but you avoid it, your tooth is in a compromised position (as in, it’s weak and it could break at any time). Sign up for the care you need when you need it to avoid unnecessarily broken teeth.
