The New Year is here, Let us help you break these 6 bad Habits that harm your teeth as or with your New Year’s resolution!  

1.       Nail Biting

The habit: This nervous habit can chip teeth and impact your jaw. Placing your jaw for long periods of time in a protruding position can place pressure on it, which is associated with jaw dysfunction.

The solution: Bitter-tasting nail polishes, stress reduction and setting small, realistic goals can help. If certain situations are triggers, hold something to keep your fingers busy.


2.       Brushing Too Hard

The habit: Brushing for two minutes twice a day is one of the best habits you can get into. Just make sure you’re not trying too hard. Brushing with a hard toothbrush, or brushing too hard, can damage teeth and irritate gums.

The solution: Use a soft toothbrush with the ADA Seal of Acceptance at the proper pressure. Do not scrub, Think ‘massage’. “Save the hard toothbrush for cleaning the grout in the bathroom tile.”
