Not Wearing Mouth Guards
Playing contact sports without a mouthguard is a bad idea. One that could cost you some teeth! Stock mouth protectors and boil and bite protectors (available in stores) can help you keep your Colgate smile. For added comfort and strength, have your dentist make a custom guard.
In the habit of chugging down sodas? They are packed with sugar! Some sodas contain more than 10 teaspoons of sugar per helping – perfect for causing tooth decay. Plus, the citric acid and/or phosphoric acid content erodes tooth enamel. When you’re thirsty, your best option is still water.
