Whether you believe it or not, there are habits and things at work that can harm your teeth and gums. It’s important to avoid those things and do your best to keep your smile in tip-top shape while you’re working. To help you do so, our dentists, Dr. Dang and Whitt, have some tips for you:

-Brush your teeth after lunch: In order to do so, you need to pack your toothbrush and toothpaste with you to work. Or, you can have a separate toothbrush and tube of toothpaste in your desk drawer. Make sure to brush after lunch to remove food particles and keep your smile clean, healthy and strong.

-Don’t use your teeth as tools: This is important because if you use your teeth to do things like open a package and rip off a tag, then it can cause tooth cracks. The cracks can damage the entire tooth.

-Pack a tooth-healthy lunch: Include foods that are healthy for the teeth, like fruits, vegetables, protein and dairy products. Try to avoid sugary and acidic foods and beverages.
