Healthy Teeth

Mai is five years old. Her mother wants her to take good care of her teeth. She reminds Mai to brush and floss her teeth twice a day. Mai brushes every morning. She brushes at night too. One of the house rules is that teeth need to be brushed before Mai hears her bedtime story.


Mai is a thorough brusher. She brushes all her teeth up and down, left to right. She reaches to the back of her mouth to brush her molars. Plus, she flosses between each tooth.

 

Mai takes her time. Her routine lasts two to three minutes. That’s the same amount of time it takes to sing the ABC song. Mai sings it to herself. This helps her not rush.


Mai has nice, white teeth. She does not have any cavities. She has good oral health.
