Having a strong smile is an important part of who you are, so keeping it strong and healthy is only going to enhance your self-esteem! That's why your San Ramon CA dentist wants to share some simple, easy tips in order to maintain the best smile for you!
Do you get stressed easily? While it may be strange to think about, your stress can negatively affect your teeth. A common dental issue is bruxism, better known as teeth grinding, and it mostly occurs when people sleep. This is why bruxism usually goes untreated; people aren't always aware that they're damaging their teeth while they're sleeping and they wake up with a sore jaw and sensitive teeth. If you wake up with these symptoms, you may want to consider discussing mouth guards with your dentist.
If you're worried that you're not brushing your teeth properly with a manual brush, you may consider getting an electric brush. Sometimes, people brush their teeth too roughly with a manual brush, so the use of an electric brush can do all of the work for you! But make sure not to go above and beyond with an electric brush, spending too much money on a toothbrush will be a waste of money.
