- Do you have braces? Then you’re helping to keep your teeth healthy! Sure, you’ll love the look. But straight teeth are also easier to keep clean and help with keeping your gums healthier, too.
- Have you heard of wisdom teeth? No — they’re not smart teeth! During tween years, these “wisdom teeth” can start to grow in back near your molars. You won’t see them or feel them, but they’re there! In fact, some people never get them at all. Ask if yours are starting to grow in next time you visit your dentist!
- Want your teeth to be pearly white? Brush and floss! For now, dentists say stay away from whiteners – they can be harmful to your gums and make your teeth very sensitive.
- Do you do the 5 second rush-brush? Try this! The best brushing technique is at least 2 full minutes. So, try brushing your teeth to the iTwixie theme song, “Go!” and you’ll be on your way to healthier, stronger, whiter teeth!
