A big thank you to Ms. Danielle and Ms. Bethany from Dr. Tilghman & Dr. Schwartz's office for visiting our school and teaching us about dental hygiene. We learned some important tips on how to keep our teeth shiny and clean.
Brush twice a day for two minutes. You should spend thirty seconds brushing each of the four quadrants of your mouth. Don't forget to brush your gums and tongue.
Always floss after brushing. When your dental floss reaches your gums, make a "C" motion and come back up. This will help scoop away any food and help keep your gums healthy.
Eating crunchy vegetables will also help clean your teeth. Chewing on crunchy pencils, fingernails, or ice cubes will NOT help clean your teeth. They only cause damage.
Try to stay away from soda, candy or other acidic foods. Acid can eat away your teeth and cause cavities.
