Health Tip: Take Care of Your Teeth
Medical news

 

Losing teeth does not have to be a normal part of aging, as long as you take care of them.

The Mouthhealthy.org website from the American Dental Association advises:


Use a soft-bristled toothbrush or electric brush twice daily.
Use dental floss every day.


Clean dentures each day. And don't sleep with them in your mouth.
Drink plenty of tap water (that contains fluoride) to protect teeth from decay.
Don't smoke.
Visit a dentist regularly.
