Don’t let dental abrasion ruin your smile this Halloween. Although it is extremely important to always keep your mouth clean, some cleaning products maybe a little bit too rough on your teeth and cause extra wear. Here are some tips to remember when it comes to dental abrasion:

– Avoid foods and drinks that tend to have an excessive amount of harmful acids present. This includes products that have a low pH level.
– Focus on oral health care cleaning tools that can effectively do their jobs to keep your smile safe.
– Stick to low abrasive toothpaste and toothbrushes with soft bristles for your oral health care cleaning needs.
– Consider the use of mouthwash or sugarless chewing gum to help stimulate saliva flow in your mouth. Saliva can often help fight any diseases or hazards that may arise.
– Avoid snacking between meals, especially with acidic products. Instead, any products that can potentially be abrasive to your teeth should be added to a larger meal.
