There are billions of bacteria living inside our mouths at any given time. Many of that bacteria can build up as plaque, causing tooth decay (cavities) and gingivitis, which can lead to periodontal disease (gum disease). For a healthy smile, you must practice good oral hygiene every day. Brushing after meals, using antimicrobial mouthwash, and flossing at least once per day helps to keep these disease-causing bacteria from reproducing in your mouth, and causing tooth decay. A healthy diet that minimize sugary and starchy foods also helps to keep those bad bacterial under control.
