Healthy habits go a long way in keeping your teeth and gums in top condition, and even the smallest changes can make a big difference in the long term.

Key takeaways:

  • Use an antibacterial mouthwash to prevent plaque buildup.
  • Switch to plain water or unsweetened tea as your drinks of choice, instead of sweetened drinks that cause cavities.
  • Never let toddlers go to bed with a sippy cup, as this can result in tooth decay.

You should also break unhealthy habits, like smoking or eating too much added sugar.
