Take Care of your Teeth
Education of tooth care is a very important subject. We were all only given one chance to take care of our teeth. So that's what we should do care for our teeth Here are some tips to help our children care for their teeth.
Limit the amount of pop and sugar drinks we give our children and teens consume. Encourage them to drink water and milk. Both will help teeth grow in strength.
Straws should be encouraged as they will help keep the sugar away from their teeth.
Rinsing of the mouth after drinking will help as well. Parents can help by helping children swish their mouth out with water to dilute sugar
Water should be the only liquid drank directly before bedtime. Pop, juice, sport drinks and milk coats tongue and teeth with sugar and acid. Likewise water should be the only liquid after brushing teeth as well
Brush teeth with toothpaste 2 times a day in the morning and night. Battery operated tooth brushes work well with children
The dentist should be visited two times a year.
