Brushing, flossing and maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle are important steps you can take each day to protect your teeth and gums . Caretakers should assist those who cannot perform routine oral hygiene tasks on their own, by gently brushing the teeth, gums and tongue with a fluoridated toothpaste twice a day. Flossing at least once a day removes plaque buildup from between the teeth to reduce your risk of periodontal disease. Helping those in your care maintain a diet that is low in sugar prevents cavities, and providing programs to help people quit smoking can protect against oral and throat cancers.
