Taking care of your teeth is important. They are what allow you to chew, talk, and smile. As long as you follow dentist recommendations for proper dental hygiene, you are less likely to develop teeth problems, such as tooth decay, gingivitis, and other periodontal diseases. This includes brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily, and seeing a dentist every 6 months for a deep cleaning. They even suggest replacing your toothbrush fairly often.
