  1. Don't Rush Your Brush:
    The average person spends only about 35 seconds brushing their teeth... Slow down...relax... enjoy... And be gentle... It takes about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes to do it properly. Remember its the spots you miss day after day where the problems start.

  2. Clean Between:
    The tooth brush cleans only about 65% so flossing is necessary to clean the 35% in between the teeth where the toothbrush can't reach. Check it out... do the floss test...put it between your back teeth, and wipe both sides an see what comes out... Now where do you think your bad breath comes from? You may think flossing is a hassle, but its no where near the hassles that gum surgery or dentures can be.

  3. Eat, Drink, but be wary:
    Eat a well-balanced diet. Avoid the high sugar foods especially between meals. If you chew gum, make it sugarless, and remember if your diet is damaging your teeth its affecting the rest of your health in a negative way too!

  4. Check your gums:
    Gum disease is painless in the early stages and the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. If your gums are red or puffy and bleed when you brush, even a little, or if you have bad breath, get it checked out the next time you're at the dentist's. If you catch it early its easy to prevent gum disease.

  5. Don't wait until it hurts:
    It can be painful and expensive. Preventive checkups and cleanings are the way to go. Ask questions about where your're missing and how to improve your brushing and flossing. Learn how to keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime.
