Your Mouth Matters
Healthy teeth and gums are an essential part of being a healthy person. Not only do your teeth allow you to properly break down the food you eat for good nutrition, but they also allow you to show off a dazzling smile.
In order to have a healthy mouth brushing and flossing your teeth are two things you must do every single day. Food and drinks contain sugar that can cause serious damage and cavities if not brushed away. Plaque also attacks teeth and can lead to cavities. Flossing is the best way to keep your gums healthy. After all, they hold your teeth in your mouth!
Who Needs a Dentist?
Everyone needs a dentist! While your baby teeth will fall out, your grown up teeth need to last the rest of your life. A dentist will help you make sure that your teeth stay healthy so you can keep on smiling. All kids should visit a dentist twice a year for a check-up and cleaning. You can ask your dentist any questions you have about taking good care of your teeth.
