You May Be On the Path Towards Tooth Loss

Posted on 9/21/2021 by Dr. J. Derek Tieken
You May Be On the Path Towards Tooth LossGood oral health is vital for your well-being. By practicing good dental hygiene, you help prevent conditions like tooth decay and gum disease that could lead to tooth loss. However, practices such as poor oral hygiene, biting on hard ice, and poor diet put you on the path towards tooth loss.

Poor Oral Hygiene

The key to strong and healthy teeth is good oral hygiene. The basic practices of oral hygiene are brushing and flossing. It is recommended that you brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss once daily. This will help get rid of food particles and bacteria in your mouth. You should also use a mouthwash that can access areas missed by flossing and brushing. Furthermore, you should come to our offices for regular dental checks and oral cleanings. Lack of good oral hygiene will cause tooth loss due to various infections.

Biting on Hard Ice

As much as ice can be sweet and refreshing, biting on it can lead to tooth loss. This is because crunching on hard ice causes microscopic cracks on your teeth' surface. With time, these cracks can expand and cause damage. Severally dislodged teeth can be challenging to save, meaning you will have to settle for other restoration procedures. Therefore, you need to avoid chewing on hard ice.

Poor Diet

Apart from dental hygiene, your teeth will also need nutrients to survive. Supplying your body with ideal nutrients will help keep them strong and prevent infections. In addition, it also important to avoid foods that could damage your teeth. Sugary foods, for example, will accumulate on your teeth and cause infections. It is also important to avoid acidic foods and drinks that could erode your teeth. Acidic conditions wear down the tooth enamel and expose the underlying dentin. Visit our offices for more information on the possible causes of tooth loss.
