Poor Oral Hygiene
Not brushing teeth regularly, not flossing, not including your tongue while brushing your teeth, and do not use mouth wash is definitely a bad practice of poor oral hygiene.
It is recommended that you should brush your teeth and tongue at least twice a day after meals.
Acid Food and Drink
Many people will immediately think of soda when they hear the word ‘sour’, but no, soda is not the only drink that acid may have an adverse effect on your teeth.
Any food that we take every day contains different amounts of acid. Fish and bread did not look like it is acidic but not, along with carbonated drinks and fruit juices. All these foods that we do not even realize that contain acids that are bad for the teeth
Deep Gap and Enamel Issues
People who have problems with tooth enamel and deep cracks are more likely to have tooth decay. You should visit the dentist every six months so that you will have some mouth-cleaning procedures and inspections.
Poor dental hygiene can lead to problems such as tooth decay, bad breath, tooth loss, and gum infections.
