Summary

It’s important to take care of your mouth and teeth starting in childhood. If you don’t, you could have problems with your teeth and gums – like cavities or even tooth loss.

Here’s how to keep your mouth and teeth healthy:

  • Brush your teeth every day with a fluoride toothpaste
  • Clean between your teeth every day with floss or another type of between-the-teeth cleaner
  • Snack smart – limit sugary snacks
  • Don’t smoke or chew tobacco
  • See your dentist or oral health professional regularly
