Bad Habits That Can Ruin Your Perfect Smile!

I came across this informational write-up while web surfing.  There are things listed here that you may find surprising.  I know I did.  Some of these habits are obvious, some not so obvious, however, all of them are habits you might want to break in the interest of preserving your oral health. Enjoy!

  • Grinding your teeth - ( This is a habit that many people don't even realize they have)
  • Chewing Ice
  • Smoking -(Hard on tooth enamel and gums!)
  • Chewing tobacco (obvious reasons, ugh!)
  • Chewing on a pencil (the metal binder at the top)
  • Eating Sunflower Seeds 
  • Drinking soda (sugar, sugar, sugar!)
  • Opening things with your teeth
  • Bulimia or Anorexia (Has a similar effect to Meth use)
  • Meth Usage (A condition known as meth-mouth....Look that up!  It's not pretty) 
  • Tongue piercing (aside from infection, people have been known to bite down on the tongue ring and chip teeth.) 
  • Drinking Fruit Juices (Fruit juices contain more sugar than you may think!)
  • Munching on Raisins (Raisins can cause cavities) 
Keep Smiling!
