To keep our mouth healthy brush wash away the food particles in the mouth that cause plaque to be formed. Plaque is bad for the teeth because if it builds up for long can cause a sticky substance known as tartar and can make teeth decay. Brush and floss at least twice daily to ensure that you are safe

Avoid acidic and sugary foods
