Losing a tooth when you were a kid was probably fun, with the tooth fairy making her visit but now that you are older, losing your teeth might not be a great thing since these are the only set of teeth you have left.
Brushing away the tartar is important to keep your teeth in good condition. The build up of it causes cavities, decay, and gum disease. Maintaining proper dental hygiene is important.
A visit to the dentist is expensive and unavoidable but there are things to do at home to keep the visits low, like brushing with baking soda.
Brushing with baking soda will help but if you lack the time, brushing regularly works great. Make sure to use a toothbrush that has the American Dental Association seal of approval.
