Teeth are very important part of our body. They need to be taken care of well because they help us chew our food. Remember we cannot live without food.

Brushing our teeth at least twice a day is very important too. Dentists advise brushing of our teeth in the morning and before going to bed. This helps a lot in preventing decay and bad breath.
