White teeth is what most people see as attractive. Unfortunately white teeth occur when the mineral content of your teeth is rather low.
Chewing on Ice Its is definetely not harmless munching on hard, frozen cubes can chip or even crack your teeth. People believe it’s sugar free, so you might think ice is harmless. Nothing coukd be further from the truth.
Teeth have yellow tones because of their mineral content. This gives strength to the teeth, and so should not be considered to be a bad feature. White teeth, especially teeth that have been bleached, are weaker.
Acid ranks as the main cause of tooth enamel loss. This substance eats away at tooth enamel, eroding it over time. This leaves the tooth vulnerable and without its main source of protection.
The mouth produces acid in a number of ways. The most common method comes from the food we eat. Environmental factors will heighten the acid production in your mouth. Should your mouth produce a lot of friction, you suffer a lot of stress, or your teeth simply have a lot of wear on them, your acid production usually soars.
The way you brush your teeth can also contribute to enamel loss. When you brush too hard or too much, you wear away the enamel, causing your teeth to become sensitive.
Soda and fruit juices are definetely not good for your teeth. If you can replace even one or two of these drinks each day with water, you’ll be doing a great service to your teeth and most likely to your weight too.
When you swirl soda drinks around in your mouth you’re exposing even more of your mouth to the acid that causes tooth enamel breakdown. Avoid swishing your drinks. A good counter measure is to use a straw so the soft drink touches as few teeth as possible before being swallowed.
Best way though is to brush your teeth right after meal, 10 to 20 minutes after.
