The ADA (American Dental Association) says it is crucial you brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. You can even find the stamp of approval on toothpaste that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance! If you do this, it will enhance your overall health. It has been found that if you do not brush your teeth every day, it can lead to other more serious health problems. When you are brushing your teeth, squeeze a pea size amount of toothpaste onto your toothbrush and move in circular motions on your teeth; brush the top, bottom, inside and outside of your teeth. Don’t forget to brush your tongue; that is where bacteria can build up. Remember to spit out your toothpaste and rinse your mouth when you are done brushing. Please floss after brushing; this will help keep your gums clean and fresh too.
Here is a great tool to have, if you are having lunch and are unable to brush after you eat. Carry a bottle of water to rinse excess food and/or eat an apple. Apples are a natural tooth cleaner; eat the apple and rinse with water. This will help until you can brush your teeth later.
Do not forget to brush your teeth twice a day. Brushing your teeth is important for your entire body and this is a good way to help yourself.
