Do you want to have a strong and healthy smile at work? If so, our dentist, Dr. Stephen M. Dang, is happy to help you achieve that goal. Unfortunately, there are many things or habits at work that can damage your teeth and gums and affect your oral health. It’s important to avoid those things and keep your smile in mind while you’re working. To help you keep your smile in tip-top shape, our dentist encourages you to do the following things:

-Brush your teeth after lunch: To do this, you need to pack your toothbrush each day or you need to keep a separate toothbrush in your desk at work. Don’t forget the toothpaste! Make sure to brush your teeth after lunch to remove the food particles from the smile and to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy.

-Don’t use your teeth as tools: Using your teeth as tools, like to open a package or rip off a tag, can fracture the tooth enamel. The crack can be small at first, but the longer you use your teeth as tools, the bigger the crack can get. Then the entire tooth can be damaged.

-Pack a tooth-healthy lunch: The most tooth-healthy foods to pack are fruits, vegetables, protein and dairy products. It’s best to avoid packing things that are sugary and acidic.
