Often children hear “Do this” or “Do that.” and as a child, sometimes it is hard to understand why to do something. Parents often say these things a lot but brushing your teeth is really something you should be doing every day. I am sad to see kids with rotting teeth but here is what happens if you don’t brush your teeth.
Plaque is the yellowish stuff that sticks on your teeth. By properly brushing and flossing your teeth you will remove plaque, a bacteria, from building up and living on your teeth.
The bacteria from plaque feeds off of the food you eat. The result is acid from the bacteria that eats away at your teeth, creating decay, or rot. Please be aware that the dirtier your teeth are, the less I can pay since I don’t like to touch them and we have to clean them back at the castle. Rotten teeth have to be thrown away.
If you let plaque sit on your teen long enough, your teeth will begin to rot and look like this.
If you continue to ignore your teeth, as an adult, you will have teeth like this and nobody wants that.
So, please do me a favor and brush and floss your teeth every day and don’t let your teeth rot!
