National Tortilla Chip Day & Your Teeth

tortilla chips

Bust out the guacamole because it’s National Tortilla Chip Day! If you want to keep your tooth enamel healthy, there are a few things you need to avoid.

Damaging Your Enamel

Certain foods like hard candy and tortilla chips.

  • Chip the enamel
  • Discolor the enamel
  • Create plaque
  • Decay the enamel
  • Create cracks in the enamel
  • Eroding the tooth enamel

Take care of your teeth. Don’t over brush or brush too hard. Eat bad foods in moderation and think of the consequences later on. Do you want to be a frequent dental visitor? Probably not. You want to impress your dentist with the smile you have and how you’re taking care of it.

Stay Away from Chips on National Tortilla Chip Day

Eating chips frequently can create a buildup of plaque on your teeth. These foods contain high amounts of oils and ingredients that tend to stick to your teeth, especially along the gums. When you do eat these snacks, brush and floss your teeth right away.

Get a Dental Plan for Regular Cleanings

You can avoid future dental problems by getting regular cleanings and checkups provided with your dental benefits.

However, there are several options to choose from. The premiums, deductibles, and types of coverage can vary, so here are four important steps when you’re shopping around for dental benefits.

  • First, find out if you can get group coverage
  • Secondly, check into individual policies
  • Third, research dentists in your network.
  • Finally, read your policy

The bottom line is to do your homework. If you don’t understand the policy, ask your broker for a brief explanation. The key here is to get the best dental care for you and your family.
