In brief: Dental hygiene

Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing them daily, foods or beverages that contain sugar and having regular check-ups with a dentist can help keep your teeth healthy for life.

In brief: Brushing and flossin

Brushing and flossing will reduce oral bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease.
Diet low in sugars and acids to protect the teeth. Regular dental care to treat the decay. It needs to be removed and the teeth restored.

In brief: Holistic Dentistry

There are some "holistic dentists" out there that utilize some different approaches for recommending help with prevention and treatment for all dentistry.
There is really no substitute for consistent brushing and flossing and nutrition.
