Rinse your mouth regularly to ensure any loose food particles are removed and do not become lodged between the teeth or stuck in the gums resulting in infection.  Regular dental visits to have teeth cleaned and checked for problems are essential.

Regular cleanings remove plaque and tartar and reduce the spread of bacteria inside the mouth. The check-up will also see if there’re any chipped teeth or cavities that need to be repaired. The faster any problems are addressed, the less likely the problem will worsen.
