Brushing your teeth removes plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on your teeth. Plaque causes tooth decay by producing acids that attack the tooth enamel. Flossing helps remove plaque from places where your toothbrush can’t reach, such as between your teeth.

Gum disease is an infection of the gums that can damage the supporting structures of the teeth. Good oral hygiene helps prevent gum disease by removing plaque from the gums. Regular dental checkups are also important in detecting and treating gum disease in its early stages.

Bad breath (halitosis) can be caused by food, tobacco products, poor oral hygiene or other factors. Brushing your teeth after meals and using dental floss can help remove food particles from your mouth and freshen your breath. If you smoke, quitting smoking is the best way to freshen your breath and improve your overall health.
