Our toothbrush are tools that kick plaque to the curb, keeps cavity away with the help from their partner in crime, fluoride toothpaste. The key to preventing tooth decay lies in the way we use our toothbrush.

Cancer is a disease where part of the body has an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells. The body’s cells begin to separate and spread without stopping into the surrounding tissues.
The term oral cancer includes cancer of the oral cavity and oropharynx (throat). The oral cavity includes the lips, inside lips or cheeks, teeth, gums, front two-thirds of the tongue, floor and roof of the mouth. The oropharynx (throat) starts at the soft part of the roof of mouth to the back into the throat, the back section of the tongue, and the base where the tongue attaches to floor of the mouth. Oral cancer accounts for 2.9% of all cancers in the United States. If it is detected early, there is a 60% 5-year survival rate for those diagnosed and a chance to avoid being 1 of over 9,000 people whose lives are claimed each year, which is 1 life taken every hour.
