Taking care of your teeth is very important. If you do not brush, acids in your mouth can break down tooth enamel and cause cavities. This can cause:
• Bad breath • Pain • More trips to the dentist
No one wants to have bad breath or have to go to the dentist more than they already have to!
How can this be prevented?
- Always brush your teeth twice a day regularly. This is the first and foremost requirement for maintaining a healthy mouth.
- Buy a toothbrush with soft bristles that has a good grip so that you don’t hurt yourself while brushing your teeth. Hard bristles can damage your teeth.
- Brush your teeth for a minimum of two minutes to make sure plaque and other bacteria are not left behind.
- Floss once a day to get rid of all that left over food between your teeth.
- Change your brush after every three months. Plus, you must change your toothbrush after you have suffered from a cold.
- Visit your dentist every 6 months to professionally clean, check your teeth and give you expert advice on your oral health.
