“Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you’ll start to see a big difference in your life.” – Yoko Ono
Whether we are adults or children, it’s very important to practice good oral hygiene. If we don’t include careful oral hygiene in our routines, the health of many body systems can be affected. Remember to brush your teeth thoroughly, floss your teeth and have fluoride treatments when our dentists say it’s time. There is another important detail to having healthy teeth and gums – we need to eat healthy food. Smile in the mirror every day. Be happy when you see healthy teeth.
Foods We Eat Can Help our Teeth and Gums to Be Healthy
When we eat healthy food such as oranges, we are helping our bodies fight against tooth decay, disease and plague, which is a sticky film of bacteria and sugar that can cause cavities and other tooth problems. When we eat oranges and other citrus fruits, we get antioxidants for our body, fiber and cellulose to help clean our teeth as we eat fruits.
Parents need to encourage children to substitute candy and cookie snacks with good healthy snacks. Our lives will be so much better if we can have our teeth stay healthy for our whole lives.
