What better way to celebrate than by showing your teeth some love!
How can we love our teeth? Many ways, some of the most obvious being brushing 2 times a day for 2 minutes each time, but also:
- Flossing daily
- Avoiding sugary beverages like pop and juice
- Avoiding sweets and candy
- Eating healthy snacks like apples, carrots, celery, and broccoli are a great way to get good nutrition and keep healthy teeth.
Another great way is by drinking tap water. Tap water has Fluoride in it that helps protect our teeth from tooth decay. Fluoride occurs naturally in our drinking water. Community Fluoridation programs help to adjust the amount to a perfect level to protect our teeth.
Fluoride acts like a type of armor or shield, it is like a superhero for our teeth! What better way to fight cavities, but with our own Fluoride Superhero!
And the best part yet… it’s FREE! Fluoride saves not only our teeth, but our money! Tooth decay can be very expensive, but it’s preventable! We can avoid the most common chronic childhood disease by good hygiene, smart food and drink choices, and by drinking tap water! So get your Fluoride Superhero by choosing tap water and love your teeth!
