Are You Too Hard On Your Teeth?

Your teeth are made of the hardest substance in your body, tooth enamel. But they are not indestructible. It matters how you treat your teeth. Otherwise overall wear and tear can begin to break down the appearance and your health. Dr. Judy Strutz and her team recommend that you take care of your smile in order to keep it and your body healthy.

The key to brushing is using gentle circular motions that do not cause the gums to recede. Brushing in gentle circles helps to remove any food particles that are left on your teeth after you have consumed your favorite meal, without causing permanent damage to your gums.  You also want to make sure that you get the back side and the back surface of your teeth. It is easy when brushing to forget to brush the back molars, but they need your love and attention also.

Brushing and flossing regularly is the key to keeping your smile in top shape for a lifetime. People make jokes about smiling while you still have teeth, but if you take care of your smile there will be no reason for you to lose your teeth to decay or other dental problems later on.
