Preventing Tooth Loss: Never Let (Your Teeth!) Go
- Posted on: Nov 15 2013
There’s no denying that your teeth are important — from being able to chew what you eat to increasing your self-confidence when people notice your naturally beautiful smile. Here at our Fort Lauderdale oral-maxillofacial surgery practice, we educate our patients on the importance of preserving their teeth to avoid the health risks associated with tooth loss.
Dr. Leslie Sultan recommends the following quick tips to preventing tooth loss:
Use your teeth for its intended use which is chewing the food you eat. Refrain from using them in opening bottles or tearing away packaging.
Bruxism or tooth grinding (often at night) is closely associated with tooth loss. If you think you suffer from bruxism, we encourage you to visit us right away for an initial consultation.
Limit your intake of highly acidic foods as they could easily wear your enamel (the outermost protective covering of your tooth) down.
Be consistent with your brushing and flossing.
