Good oral health helps you enjoy life. It allows you to: speak clearly; Chew, and swallow, the taste of delicious and nutritious food. And explicit your emotions through facial expressions including smiling.

If you defend your oral fitness with good oral hygiene practices (brushing and flossing), the percentages are in your favor that you may preserve your teeth for a life-time.


Brush Your Teeth

Removing plaque, a sticky, colorless movie of bacteria, is critical to retaining your tooth healthful. If plaque builds up, it is able to purpose teeth decay and gum sickness.

Even enamel that have been formerly crammed are liable to teeth decay. Plaque can build up under a cracked filling and cause new decay. And if you have areas in your mouth where your gums have pulled away from your teeth (called gum recession), exposed tooth roots can also rot.

Plaque is hard to see. If you stain it then you can see it more easily. After brushing your teeth, chew on "dissolving tablets" (which you can buy at the drugstore), or brush with a special disclosing toothpaste. The color will show you where plaque is still present, and you can brush those areas again to remove it. (Parents – revealing tablets to teach children how to brush their teeth can also be very helpful!)

Brush Tips:

Use fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride protects teeth from tooth decay. It prevents decay by strengthening the tooth's hard outer surface, called enamel.

Turn the bristles toward the gums, so they clean between the gums and the teeth.

Brush gently using small, circular motions. Do not rub back and forth vigorously.

Brush all sides of each tooth.

Brush your tongue.
