Prevent Beverage Stains With Dentist Supplies

dentist suppliesFor coffee drinkers like myself, I sometimes wonder about the detrimental effects of caffeinated beverages on my teeth. While there are benefits to drinking coffee, such as warding off Alzheimer’s and enhancing concentration, we have all seen the brown inside of an uncleaned coffee mug. To think that the same buildup occurs on our teeth is, well, unsettling to say the least.
Same goes for tea. It may not have as much caffeine, but it is a similar color. And cola is on another level, because not only is it staining, it’s sweet and sticky and can easily lead to cavities. So what’s a poor mouth to do?

Well, first and foremost, dental hygiene products are a must-use. That means flossing and brushing daily. This helps avoid plaque, which attracts stains. And when you brush immediately after drinking these beverages you’ll be better off. If you don’t have access to dental hygiene products, chew gum or drink water to clean the stains from your teeth. Try not to sip throughout the day; instead choose one or two sittings to indulge.

A cosmetic cleaning, which takes only about 20 minutes, can be scheduled between regular dental checkups. Dentist supplies can make your teeth look nicer and whiter, and it’s usually only about half the price of a normal checkup.
