Due to the risk of dental damage linked to various tooth hazards throughout your life, it may be wise to set forth an effective treatment and prevention plan to ensure that your smile receives the best care and treatment it can. Rather than waiting until damage has already occurred and then receiving the necessary treatments and repairs, it’s better to set forth an effective prevention plan to minimize risks and ensure that damage does not occur at all.

Several oral health risks may be involved with tooth hazards in your mouth. If you are repeatedly chewing on products that may be unsafe for your smile, you can be increasing your risk for various forms of dental damage, including chipped and cracked teeth. Several products that can easily damage your teeth and gums are as follows:

-ice
-cough drops
-candy apples
-popcorn kernels or popcorn balls
-pencils, pens, pen caps or any other enamel products
-your nails

Also, exercise caution with any products in your life that can easily damage your teeth due to oral health risks associated with enamel wear. If you are suffering from bruxism or a TMJ disorder, you can put your teeth at further risks for dental damage. If you notice anything abnormal going on with your mouth, you will want to visit your dentist to inspect your teeth for signs of damage due to oral health risks associated with enamel wear.
