Common mistakes that affect your dental health

There are several mistakes you may be making that negatively affect your teeth. Your dentist can advise if you are concerned.

Key takeaways:

- Using your teeth to bite things could result in cracked teeth and playing sport without a mouth-guard could result in tooth loss

- Going to bed without brushing your teeth gives bacteria the opportunity to multiply, producing acid which causes cavities and inflammation

- Make teeth and tongue cleaning a priority, and don’t forget to floss too

“Turn it into a habit by flossing when you watch the nightly news or do other some daily passive activity.”
