Chewing sugared gum all day.
Cavities, a sore jaw, or weakened bridgework may result. If you must chew, select gum with Xylitol.
Drinking soda and energy drinks.
These sugary, acidic beverages are very efficient at eroding enamel.
Chewing ice or hard candy.
Your enamel is pretty tough. But so are ice and hard candy, and head-to-head, from time to time they win, resulting in a chipped tooth.
Maybe you think brushing is sufficient. Following brushing with a conscientious flossing job eliminates fragments of food and plaque between teeth.
Using a firm bristled toothbrush.
A soft-bristled brush is the right tool for the job. Save your firm brush for cleaning the grout around your bathtub.
