Daily Care bunts Most By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Being self-conscious of the way her teeth look has prevented many a teen-ager from smiling in response-to her friends and acquaintances.*?-* When being introduced to new friends, the self-conscious teenager will keep her rnouth in a tight line that's most unbecoming. Or, at best, she will attempt a half-smile with her lips closed. At any rate, she will use any unattractive expression rather than reveal crooked or discolored teeth. If you see your dentist for regular checkups, you're well on your way to having healthier, more beautiful teeth. Then, the daily care you give then, is next in importance. The really well-groomed girl spends five, not two minutes, brushing her teeth and massaging her gums morning and night and after each meal. When you haven't a toothbrush Regular use of dental floss be- tv/een the teeth will remove' any particles which may have accu- laved there between regular c'janings by yo ur dentist. Avoid rich, sweet desserts (they're bad for your figure, too) and banana splits. Make it a point to include foods that must be chewed thoroughly (like raw fruits and vegetables) on your daily diet. Start now to get your teeth in perfect condition, for a sunny smile dence can win you .nd friends. new confi- genia Jenkins. Mrs. O. W. McCutchen and Mr. and Mrs. Jim Roleson. Air. and Airs.
