Xiao Hu Does not Want to Brush His Teeth (HSK 3)

Xiao Hu has never liked brushing his teeth since he was little. He always finds it boring. Every time his mother reminds him to brush his teeth, he always comes up with excuses to avoid it.

One day, Xiao Hu’s friend Xiao Hou came to play with him. Xiao Hou told Xiao Hu, “I went to see the dentist yesterday, and the dentist said brushing teeth is important for maintaining dental health.”

Xiao Hu felt curious and asked Xiao Hou, “Why brushing teeth can maintain dental health?”

Xiao Hou smiled and replied, “Because brushing teeth helps remove bacteria and food residues from the mouth, keeps our breath fresh, and makes our teeth whiter.”

Xiao Hu was intrigued, and they went to Xiao Hou’s house together. Xiao Hou took out a book about brushing teeth from a drawer, and they sat down to read it.

The book said, “Brush your teeth in the morning after having breakfast, and before bedtime. Use toothpaste and a toothbrush, and brush in the direction of the teeth. Don’t forget to brush your tongue, as there are bacteria on it too.”

Xiao Hu read the book attentively and learned a lot about brushing teeth. They decided to go to the supermarket together to buy toothbrushes and toothpaste.

Back at home, Xiao Hu and Xiao Hou took out their newly bought toothbrushes and toothpaste. They brushed their teeth together every morning and night, reminding each other to brush thoroughly.

A few weeks passed, and Xiao Hu noticed that his teeth became whiter, and his breath became fresher. He realized that brushing teeth wasn’t boring but rather an important matter.

One day, Xiao Hu and Xiao Hou went to see the dentist together. The dentist examined their teeth and praised them for having good oral hygiene.

Xiao Hu and Xiao Hou were very happy. They knew their efforts hadn’t been in vain. From that day on, Xiao Hu would never avoid brushing his teeth again. He understood the importance of brushing teeth.
