Numerous tooth hazards revolve around your diet. Not only do they heavily affect the products you can consume, but also arise in the implementation of the products in your diet through various methods. Always exercise caution around any tooth hazards present in regard to your diet and dietary habits.

Limit snacking between meals as it can increase the rate at which tooth decay can occur. In addition, opening product packaging with your teeth is a severe tooth hazard that should be avoided at all costs. Never try to open bottle caps or plastic packaging with your teeth. In regard to your diet, exercise caution with products that can easily contribute to oral health ailments such as dental erosion or tooth decay. Avoid gummy candies as they can link to your teeth and gums and cause dental erosion. In addition, products such as fruit juice, potato chips, sports drinks, and soda are all high in sugars or starches, which can be converted by plaque and bacteria in your mouth into harmful acids capable of causing dental erosion. Thus, avoid these products to keep your smile safe.
