Ways of Protecting Your Teeth When at Work Where You Cannot Brush
Getting out a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash at work may not be convenient, and in some instances, it is not even possible. However, there are times where you need to clean your teeth, so what do you do? Here are a few tips that can help. Each of them can be done while at work or simply on a busy day where you are not at home to brush just after eating.

Protect Your Teeth with These Simple Tips:

Wherever you go, bring water with you. It helps to rinse your mouth out when you eat anything, and it helps to wash down the bacteria that want to break down your enamel. The more water you drink, the better.

Also, when you go out or go to work, pack snacks that help your teeth. Grab a small bag of fresh produce to nibble on during the day, like celery, carrots, apples, and pears. These fruits can help clean your teeth while eating, making them nutritious and tooth-healthy snacks. When possible, pack a salad for lunch at work. Eating the fresh produce is also great for protecting your teeth between times of being able to brush.

Your teeth are valuable and need to be taken care of throughout the day. However, that is not always possible depending on where you are. When it isn't possible, follow these tips. They can make caring for your teeth a lot easier.

Can a Cracked Tooth Leave Your Oral Health in Danger?
It's important to not put off a dental visit if you've had a mouth injury, even if the teeth appear to be intact. A cracked tooth is quite dangerous to leave untreated. First, a crack will only continue to grow when not treated properly. Second, and more importantly, it can let bacteria into the crack. This can grow into an infection, which could put the health of your mouth or even your whole body, at risk. If you have an obvious cracked tooth or think you may have one due to pain, please get it checked.

Does Alcohol Help Rid Your Mouth of Gum Disease?
The myth that using alcohol or an alcohol-based mouthwash to rid your mouth of gum disease is just that - a myth. When you use anything with alcohol in a mouth that is struggling with gum disease, it can actually make it worse.

Alcohol dries out your mouth, which prevents your mouth from naturally washing away food particles and bacteria. This lets more bacteria grow, which can increase the severity of your gum disease. What you want to do is stick with an antibacterial or antimicrobial mouthwash and avoid alcohol as much as possible This way, the bacteria levels stay down, and your dental team can get your gum disease under control.
