Poor oral habits that you should stop

We only get one set of adult teeth in a lifetime. Therefore, you should observe proper oral habits to ensure that your teeth remain strong, white and healthy.

Here are habits that you should stop for healthier teeth:

– Using charcoal toothpaste and rinsing with apple vinegar can harm enamel.

– Drinking hot water with lemon erodes enamel, causing sensitivity.

– Drinking non-fluorinated water or using fluoride-free toothpaste exposes your teeth to decay.

Oil pulling doesn’t remove stains. Instead, visit the dentist for checkups and treatments.
