Dental Hygiene
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     When you think of hygiene, or the things a person does to stay healthy and keep clean, you may think of the obvious things. You know to take a shower. You know to wash your hands after you use the toilet. You know to shampoo your hair. Do you give much thought to dental hygiene?
 
2     Dental hygiene is a very important part of personal hygiene. It's about taking good care of your mouth. Dental visits are crucial to this care, but the most critical part is your role. Do you brush and floss every day? Only you can take charge of that!
 
3     No one likes to get cavities. They are painful and need to be filled by the dentist. To prevent them, you must remove the plaque, or the layer of food and bacteria that covers teeth. You must brush at least two times a day. You must floss, too.
 
4     What choices do you have for dental care? It's been a long time since the first toothbrush was created by the Chinese in about 1,000 A.D. You can't walk up the supermarket aisle without noticing the sizes, shapes, bristles, and colors out there. Ask your dentist what is right for you. Most will tell you to use a soft-bristled brush, but pick your favorite color, of course!
