Healthy Teeth
A tooth is a small, calcified, whitish structure found in the jaws of man.
1. Brush at least twice a day
The best time to brush teeth is after meals. Choose a toothbrush with a small head for better access to back teeth. Soft bristles are kinder on your gums.
2. Use fluoridated toothpaste
Fluoride helps to harden tooth enamel and reduces your risk of decay.
3. Brush thoroughly
Tooth brushing should take between two and three minutes.
4. Floss your teeth daily
Use a slow and gentle sawing motion.
5. Limit acidic drinks like soft drinks
Food acids soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel, causing holes (cavities or caries). In severe cases, teeth may be eaten right down to the gum.
