Dental Care Tidbits


DENTAL CARE TIDBITS

BRUSH AT LEAST TWICE A DAY

The best time to brush teeth is after meals. Choose a toothbrush with a small head and soft bristles.

USE FLUORIDATED TOOTHPASTE

Fluoride helps to harden tooth enamel and reduces your risk of decay.

LIMITS ACIDIC DRINKS LIKE SOFT DRINKS AND FRUIT JUICES

Food acids soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel.

AVOID USING YOUR TEETH FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN CHEWING FOOD

If you use them to crack nuts, remove bottle tops or rip open packaging, you risk chipping your teeth.
