It is essential to floss your teeth daily. It cleans food particles from under your gum line and between your teeth. If you don’t, plaque can harden into tartar. It forms wedges between teeth and gums and creates pockets. Gums can pull away over time, and teeth will become looser.

You can use mouthwashes to protect your teeth, reduce sensitivity and give you fresh breath if you use them along with regular brushing and flossing, but not as a substitute for daily cleanings. Your dentist will recommend the correct type of mouthwash for you. For dry or sensitive gums, some people require twice-daily rinses. Children should not use mouthwash under 6 to avoid them getting swallowed.

Yes, sugary sweets and acidic foods like soda and candy can stick to teeth and cause cavities. Gum disease and oral cancer can be caused by chewing or smoking tobacco. Although teeth can chew ice and open packages with ease, it is possible to break them or stress your jaws. Stress can cause cracks in your teeth by grinding or gritting on them. Another bad habit is biting your nails. It can cause your jaw to move out of place and change the way your teeth fit together.
