‘Oh, I Wish I’d Looked After Me Teeth’ indirectly teaches us oral hygiene. If so, how should one take care of one’s teeth?
The poem teaches a good lesson to us in dental hygiene. To take care of one’s teeth, one should brush the teeth twice a day properly, brushing up and down and covering all the teeth. In addition, one should floss the teeth regularly. One should visit the dentist at least once a year to get the teeth checked. One should avoid eating too many sweets. Sweet and sticky candies stick to the teeth for long and cause them to decay. By maintaining this discipline strictly, one can take care of one’s teeth.
