1. Get enough fluoride - This can be accomplished by your drinking water, toothpaste, dental treatments or mouth rinses.  Water fluoridation has reduced tooth decay in the United States by 50 to 60 percent since World War II.

2.  Eat/Drink foods good for your teeth - Such as Green Tea, in Japan it was discovered that men who drank at least one cup of green tea a day were 19 percent less likely to lose teeth than those who didn't take their (green) tea time.

3.  Take Vitamins that are good for your teeth and gums -  Calcium, Vitamin D (to help absorb the calcium), Vitamin A & Vitamin C.
