Every morning, I brush my teeth right after I eat breakfast. I put a little toothpaste on my toothbrush and then brush for about two or three minutes. I brush up and down to reach the spaces between my teeth. I also use dental floss to remove food particles between my teeth. I used to use an electric toothbrush, but it didn't work very well. I'm also using a tooth whitening kit to whiten my teeth because I think a brighter smile will make a better impression on people and will give me more self-confidence. When I finish brushing, I rinse my mouth and my toothbrush. Then, I put my toothbrush away in the bathroom medicine cabinet.

Part 2: Discussion

As a general rule, how often do you brush your teeth? What problems can happen if you don't brush regularly? Do you avoid certain foods or drinks that cause tooth decay?

Part 3: Online Investigation

Not all toothbrushes and toothpaste are the same. Use the Internet to find three different brands of toothpaste and/or toothbrushes and compare the benefits of each.
