A few simple steps to keep your smile healthy:

  • Brush with a soft-bristle toothbrush at least 2 times a day .
  • Floss daily — preferably after brushing.
  • Avoid sugary or starchy snacks — they turn the natural bacteria in your mouth
    into acids, which dissolve the enamel — that’s how cavities and gum disease get started.
  •  Get regular check-ups and cleanings.
