It is important to consider all aspects of your lifestyle, even mine or ones that can lead to serious dental damage. Even simple things like the products you consume or the lifestyle choices you make can easily lead to poor oral health in the form of tooth hazards. Thus, it is important to always make sure you’re keeping your smile as safe as possible.

Be careful when drinking wine. Even though red wine is known to stain teeth, white wine can leave your teeth porous and susceptible to tooth staining too. Furthermore, wines are often heavily acidic and can cause enamel erosion. You should also try to avoid unhealthy habits such as smoking tobacco, as it can severely stain your teeth as well. Furthermore, frequent smoking can drastically increase your risk of tooth loss and cancer.

Use proper judgment with any products that you may find yourself often chewing on. This includes chewing on pens, pen caps, and pencils. Furthermore, if you regularly chew your nails, you should stop these habits immediately. By chewing on products that are not meant to be chewed on, it can greatly raise your risk of a chipped or cracked tooth.
