Learn why caring for your teeth is important
Be able to describe how to keep your smile healthy and bright
Name and describe foods that are good for your teeth and those that cause tooth decay
Right now, you have 20 baby teeth.
By the time you are about 18 years old,
you will have 32 adult teeth.
Eventually, you will lose your baby teeth. They will be replaced by your adult teeth.
Your adult teeth will be permanent. You will not get another set. So, you must take very good care of your teeth.
Eating “tooth friendly” foods can also help keep your teeth in great shape!
Milk and foods made from milk make your teeth strong. They are rich in calcium.
Fruits and vegetables are also healthy for your teeth.
Some foods are not “tooth friendly”. These foods contain a lot of sugar.
Sugary foods cause plaque to build up on your teeth. This plaque can cause cavities.
You should avoid foods that have a lot of sugar and foods that stick to your teeth.
