Do you want a healthy smile at work? If so, it’s best to keep your teeth and gums in mind while you complete assignments and tasks. You should also avoid bad habits that can harm your smile. Fortunately, there are good habits that can help your smile. Our dentist, Dr. Mark Miller, encourages you to participate in them regularly. Those good habits are:

-Keep a toothbrush and toothpaste in your desk drawer. Then, brush your teeth every day after you’re done eating lunch.

-Avoid sticky and sugary treats and snacks. These products tend to cling to the teeth for long periods of time and promote cavities.

-Avoid sipping on your sugary and acidic beverages throughout the day. Sugar and acid create dental problems.

-Avoid chewing on pens and pencils. Chewing on inedible objects can fracture and chip the tooth enamel.

-Don’t use your teeth as tools. Using your teeth to open a package or tear off a tag can harm the smile in many ways.

-Drink water throughout the day. Doing so can frequently wash your teeth and gums.
