1. Crunching and sipping food or drinks.

Some people like to crunch the ice, that’s very harmful to the teeth. When someone is crunching ices, the cold temperature of ice cubes can cause the teeth to crack. Although these are very small cracks, but over time it may lead to bigger problems.

Moreover, sipping drinks can also be harmful. A report in Shanghai showed that constant exposure to sweet beverages can cause tooth decay. So it is better to drink sweet liquids with a straw is a better choice.

A research in shanghai dental showed that people use their teeth for a great many odd jobs, such as unscrew the cap, tear open a bag of snacks or rip a price tag off the clothing.

4. Using improper toothbrush.

Some people may hold the wrong idea of the firmer the tooth brush, the better, especially the senior citizens. But we should know that with age, the roots of the teeth become exposed, and the tooth brush with hard bristle may lead to sensitive teeth. It’s better to consult the dentist about the most proper tooth brush.

5. Brushing improperly.

We should at least brush our teeth twice a day. This is the minimum standards of brushing. And the tooth brush should be replaced every three or four months.

And the using of the floss should be done every day. If you are not sure about using floss, you should ask the dentist, for not everyone is fit for floss according to a report in Shanghai dental.

All these five bad habits are all bad for our teeth. So, if you have any of these bad habits, try to change it, or you might have a dental disease one day.
