Proper dental care is important for all ages.

  • Brush after meals with a toothbrush that has soft or medium bristles.
  • Use toothpaste with fluoride.
  • Use dental floss every day.
  • Eat fewer sweets, especially between meals.
  • Do not smoke or chew tobacco products.
  • Visit your dentist for regular check-ups.
