When thinking about your dental hygiene, you need to consider the foods and habits that have damaged your teeth in the past. You should also look consider your dental history. If you have had numerous cavities in the past, it may be an indicator that you need to change your oral healthcare routine.

Tooth alignment can affect the health of your smile. Your wisdom teeth are the last to grow in and if they erupt at improper angles, damage to your teeth can occur. You should talk to your dentist about wisdom teeth issues. Sugary foods and drinks are known tooth hazards, and the bacteria in your mouth can convert sugars and starches into harmful acids which can create tooth decay. Hard or touch foods can also damage your smile. You should see your dentist twice a year for your regular cleanings and examinations. Your dentist can also recommend the right products for you to maintain your smile.
