Your teeth are designed to help you speak, smile and chew your food. Using your teeth for jobs that they were not designed for, such as opening bottles or packages, can cause damage to them! You may think opening a bottle cap is harmless. However, this simple action can wear down your tooth enamel, or chip, or crack your teeth. Remember, your teeth are not tools!
During summer, you may be tempted to chew on ice when enjoying ice-cold drinks. At The Dental Room, we strongly advise you not to do this! When you chomp down on ice, it places a lot of pressure on your teeth, which can weaken and wear down your enamel. You can also crack or chip a tooth this way too!
Protect that beautiful smile this summer! Be sure to visit our dental office in Calgary to check in on your oral health! Contact us for your appointment today! We look forward to seeing you at The Dental Room.
