Your dental health affects how you feel in different ways. Your teeth affect you when you eat and when you talk to other people.

Your teeth can cause a lot of pain if you
do not take care of them properly.
Bad dental health can also affect
how you feel physically.
If you have bacteria in your gums,
they can move to other parts of the body.
For example, to the heart and blood vessels.

How to keep your teeth healthy:

  • Brush your teeth for two minutes every morning
    and two minutes every night.
  • Use toothpaste with fluoride and dental floss.
  • Let your teeth rest between eating.
  • Try not to eat food and drinks that contain sugar.
    It is especially important that you avoid sweet and sour energy drinks.
  • Drink water if you are thirsty!
    Some people have bacteria in their mouths that makes it easy for them to get caries in their teeth.
    People with this kind of bacteria can go to the dentist more often.
