Beyond tooth decay: why good dental hygiene is important

Cleaning your teeth is extremely important.

 Dr. Bloomer used to get lots are cavities when he was young. In his dental school he was taught how to brush his teeth – he learned how important it is to brush more than twice a day.

Most dentist have a dental hygienist who is an expert in cleaning teeth. That person can help teach you the best way to clean your teeth.

Here is a technique Dr. Bloomer uses to prevent cavities.

Brush three times a day, floss three times a day, use a chewing gum that has a sugar called xylitol. Xylitol is a sugar that kills the bacteria that causes cavities. Trident, Eclipse, Ice Cubes, Epic, Spry, Xylitol are some brands you should consider!
