Strong, healthy teeth help you chew the right foods which help you grow. Teeth also help you speak clearly and look your best! Taking care of your teeth helps prevent plaque, a clear film of bacteria or “Sugar Bugs” that stick to your teeth.
After you eat, Sugar Bugs go crazy over the sugar on your teeth, like ants at a picnic. The sugar bugs turn the sugar into acids that eat away tooth enamel, causing holes called cavities.
