    Dental Health Tips

    • Visit a dentist every 6 months for a dental exam (cleaning and checkup).
    • Brush at least twice a day (after breakfast and at bedtime) and floss once a day.
    • Limit sugary snacks (most foods that are healthy for your body are healthy for your teeth) and drink lots of water.
    • Protect your teeth with a mouthguard if you play a sport or activity where you can be hit in the mouth by another person or object.
    • Get sealants in your molars as soon as you can (ask your dentist or hygienist how you can "seal out decay").
    • Do not use tobacco (cigarettes or smokeless tobacco).
    • If you have a mouth sore that doesn't heal within two weeks, have a dentist check it.  There are early warning signs of oral cancer .
