Healthy Mouth: Brush 2x day with fluoridated toothpaste, floss, minimize in-between snacking. Eat a healthy and balanced diet. Even with all that, over time you can still develop carious lesions and gum disease... that's why you should visit your dentist 2x year for an exam and professional cleaning. Prevention is the key.
