Care For Your Teeth

Problems


  • Brushing your teeth day and night is very important.
  • If you do not take care of your teeth they could look like the ones in the picture.
  • You can get an invisible film of bacteria that forms on your teeth.
  • If plaque is left on the teeth it becomes a hard, crusty substance called tartar.
  • Tartar can only be removed by a dentist or a dental hygienist.

Taking care of your teeth

  • Floss everyday.
  • Brush your teeth every day and night.
  • If you have plaque or tartar brush your teeth after every meal.
  • Use a soft bristle brush because it feels better on you gums and it does a better job at getting the food stuck between your teeth.
  • Use tooth paste containing fluoride.
