Keeping Your Teeth Clean

It’s easy to keep your teeth and gums in good health if you:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.

  • Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner. Decay–causing bacteria still lingers between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. Flossing removes plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line.

  • Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks.

  • Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
