Habits that deform your teeth

Hellos my dear readers, hope you are having a nice week. Today I want to show you some habits that deform your teeth. Everything is fun and games until your teeth get crooked. Nobody wants a deformed smile, on the contrary, we strive for a beautiful straight teeth. However this is easily ruined thanks to poor habits and poor dental hygiene. Let’s see together what we want to avoid to keep our teeth strong and healthy.


Before I forget I want to invite you guys to read our other articles in this blog. We like to talk about dental hygiene and dental treatment. These topics are important to us so our patients have a beautiful smile. Speaking of which, we also help you to find affordable dental treatment in Los Algodones, Mexico.

Habits that deform your teeth


Now let’s see a list of things that can ruin your smile. Keep in mind that these things cause an effect over time and you can fix it in time. In case your teeth are already damaged do not panic, it can be fixed.  Every dental problem has a solution if you visit your dentist. To schedule an appointment with the best dentists in Los Algodones, read until the end to know how.


Chewing ice and other things

Biting into hard things such as ice can deform your teeth easily. Our teeth are made from bones and they are hard and sturdy. They are designed so we can speak, eat and other things properly. However that does not mean that they are indestructible, on the contrary, they can chip and break easily. A poor use of your teeth will lead you to a ruined smile.


Many patients have this habit and to solve it I suggest seeing a therapist and a dentist. Another bad habit that is caused by anxiety and stress is grinding your teeth together. This is also known as bruxism and can cause serious damage to your teeth. It can break them, deform them and lead to tooth loss. The worst part is that some people do it while sleeping. To stop it a mouth guard can stop it on its tracks before it is too late.

Bad tongue positioning


One silent teeth killer is your own tongue. You have to put it in the right place of your mouth and avoid movements and positions that slowly deform your teeth. One common way patients do this is by pushing their tongue forward to swallow when eating. This pushes your teeth forward and will misalign your bite. This can create many problems in the future that can only be corrected with orthodontics.


You should be putting your entire tongue in the roof of your mouth. this is the correct place to rest your tongue will swallowing and overall positioning. This will avoid putting your jaw in any strange position that will affect your teeth. This is also calling “mewing” and it can be a beneficial practice if done right. I suggest asking your dentist all your question about it to learn more about how it can improve your dental health.


Poor dental hygiene

A bad dental hygiene can also deform your teeth. As an example, dental cavities can create massive holes in your teeth and lead to teeth loos. Not having all your teeth will slowly push your teeth together, crowding them. This will need orthodontics to fix among other things, but if you start fixing it while it is just a cavity it would be better.


That is why I always suggest seeing a dentist often to keep your teeth healthy. In the meantime, strive for a good dental hygiene routine at home. It should look like brushing your teeth 3 times a day. After brushing, use dental floss to get rid of food debris between teeth. Finish it with mouth wash to rinse away any bacteria and germs remaining. Remember to be gentle with your dental hygiene, you do not want to wear down your tooth enamel or cut your gums.

Not going to the dentist deform your teeth


Finally I want to close this article with the worst habit, not visiting a dentist. This should be a yearly visit at least, but some patients ignore this. It does not matter the reason, you should be scheduling an appointment every 6 months for checkup and cleaning. Do not go to the dentist just when you are in a pinch. In fact you can save more money if you go sooner to detect the problem. That way you can maintain a healthy smile.

Not going to the dentist can accumulate tartar and plaque in unwanted places in your teeth. This is impossible to clean at home, so it will deform your smile over time. Also it can stain your teeth pretty badly for the same reason, we cannot clean them at home. That is where your dentist will come to the rescue and help you with that. I know this can be difficult for some patients because dental is so overpriced in the United State, but not in Los Algodones, Mexico.
