How to clean your teeth

Take your time about it. Don't hurry. We've already explained to you that tooth decay is an enemy we have to fight. The best way to do this is to always make sure your teeth are clean. What must you do to keep them clean? Brush them. Brushing your teeth serves to get rid of the remains of food that we have eaten or to eliminate the bacteria that attack teeth, which are found in bacterial plaque. It is also necessary to prevent gum disease.

When brushing your teeth, remember, you mustn't hurry. You must follow a series of steps that will take you no more than three minutes in all.
