You wake from a good night’s sleep😴 and your mother comes in your room to ask you to brush your teeth. Or you’re about to go to bed🛏 and your mother asks you to brush your teeth.
Have you ever wondered🤔 why your mother asks you to take care of your teeth? Let’s find out.
Your teeth🦷 are important in many ways. If you take care of them they’ll help take care of you. Strong, healthy teeth help you chew the right foods to help you grow. They help you speak clearly. And yes, they help you look your best.😁
Taking care of your teeth also helps prevent plaque. Plaque is a clear film of bacteria🦠 that sticks to your teeth.
After you eat, bacteria go crazy over the sugar on your teeth, like ants🐜 at a picnic. The bacteria break it down into acids that eat away tooth enamel, causing holes called cavities.
Plaque also causes gingivitis which is gum disease.😳 This disease can make your gums red, swollen, and sore. Your gums are those soft pink tissues in your mouth that hold your teeth🦷 in place.
If you don’t take care of your teeth, cavities and unhealthy gums will make your mouth very, very sore.😖 Eating meals will be difficult. And you won’t feel like smiling so much.😐
So, make sure that you brush your teeth twice✌ a day. And do this not because your mother asked you to but because you have to keep your teeth clean and healthy. 👌
