3 Bad Dental Habits That May Seem Like Good Dental Care

dca-blog-bad-dental-habits

You may think that you’re practicing good dental care when you may really be doing your teeth more harm than good. Find out which dental care habits are better to stop than sustain.

  1. Whitening Teeth Too Often. When having whiter teeth is your goal, you may think that frequent whitening is needed to maintain your dazzling results. Too much whitening has become one of the most common bad dental habits as it has increased in popularity. Unfortunately, overuse of whitening products can cause major mouth pain and sensitivity, so use them only as often as directed. For the safest and longest-lasting whitening results, see your dentist for a professional treatment.
  2. Brushing Teeth Too Roughly. Everyone knows that brushing your teeth is one of the basics of good dental care, but getting too rough when you brush can turn into one of the worst bad dental habits because it can harm the delicate tooth enamel that you’re trying to protect. When it comes to how to cure bad dental habits like overly aggressive brushing, dentists recommend choosing a toothbrush with soft bristles and brushing with a gentle, circular motion. And, it’s best not to brush more than three times a day.
  3. Using Toothpicks to Clean Teeth. When food stuck gets in your teeth and you don’t have dental floss with you, it may seem like a good idea to pick it out with a toothpick. But poking your teeth can harm your gums and actually cause dental care problems. Want to know how to cure bad dental habits like this? Just remember that even though they’re called toothpicks, they don’t belong in your teeth.
