Healthy teeth are important for chewing your food properly, which aids in the digestive system. Also, teeth aid us when we speak. Another major advantage of healthy and attractive teeth are how people view us and how we feel about ourselves.
What do healthy teeth look like? Healthy teeth:
- Are decay free
- Plaque/tartar free
