Everyday wear and tear takes a toll on your teeth as you age. But there are many things you can do to keep your aging teeth in great condition. Follow these tips and you will have a lot to smile about.
Cut Down Wear and Tear
Your teeth are unbelievably strong. However, they can still be worn down. All of the chewing, grinding, and biting wears away the enamel, which is the hard, outer layer of your teeth.
You will not be able to erase a lifetime of wear and tear, without having it restored by a dentist, but you can definitely keep it from getting worse. Don’t chew on ice or other hard foods. Chewing on hard foods can cause chips in your enamel and even break teeth.
