Why is it so important to take care of your teeth?

Taking care of your teeth since childhood goes a long way. You will thank yourself when you could enjoy a piece of chocolate or any delicious fruit even at the age of 70 yrs.

Here are some easy ways to improve your oral health

  1. Brush your teeth along with the gum line twice a day with an ADA (accepted fluoride toothpaste) to remove plaque – the sticky film on teeth which is the main cause of tooth decay.
  2. Eat a well-balanced diet that limits starchy or sugary foods, which produce plaque acids that cause tooth decay.
  3. Drink plenty of water.
  4. Limit sugary foods which contribute towards the tooth decay.
  5. Have regular visits to the dentist.
  6. Wear a mouth-guard during contact sports or activities where there is risk of injury to the face.
