Early morning wakeup calls and long nights can make skipping your oral hygiene routine all too tempting. However, even just one missed brushing and flossing regimen allows the food particles and bacteria in your mouth to wreak havoc on your teeth and gums. With this in mind, always be diligent about brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using mouthwash regularly.
Out of sheer convenience, you may make the spontaneous decision to use your sharp chompers to rip into a package instead of scissors. While this may get the job done 90% of the time, all it takes is one bite for your teeth to be the ones to break. Fortunately, you can easily prevent this from happening by using the proper tools or asking for a helping hand.
