    1. 1. Brush Regularly
      Frequency:Brush your teeth at least twice a day using fluoride toothpaste.
  1. 2. Floss Daily
    1. Why Floss?: Flossing removes food particles and plaque from between teeth and along the gumline.
    2. How: Use dental floss or interdental brushes to clean those hard-to-reach areas.
  1. 3. Choose the Right Toothbrush :
    1. Choose a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid damaging your gums and enamel.
    2. Replace your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months or sooner if the bristles fray.
  1. 4. Limit Sugary Foods and Drinks :
    1. Sugars feed harmful bacteria in your mouth, leading to cavities.

  1. 5. Visit Your Dentist Regularly :
    1. Schedule
      check-ups every 6 months

  1. 7. Avoid Tobacco Products:
    1. Smoking and chewing tobacco harm your oral health and increase the risk of gum disease and oral cancer.
