Posted by Jeanne V. Devi DDS on Dec 17 2019, 05:56 AM

You must already know that the world looks brighter with a bright smile. But, to keep that bright smile evergreen, you must take care of your teeth just like you take care of your children. And it is even more important to keep your kids’ teeth healthy and bright. So come on! Let us make a resolution to keep a healthy smile from now on.

Maintaining your children's oral health is as important as keeping them fit and fine. Oral health is an essential part as it directly connects to the overall fitness of the human body. Teach your kids good healthy dental habits as they grow up before your eyes. Some methods to strengthen your child’s smile are given below!

Brushing Twice a Day Regularly

Not just kids, but adults too must brush their teeth twice daily to ensure that no germs stay in your mouth for long. Use a tiny smear of toothpaste, the size of a grain, for babies under three years. And use a pea-size amount of paste when they are older. 

Floss and Rinse Once a Day

Every dentist suggests flossing daily to remove any food particles stuck between teeth and under the gum line where the brush may be unable to reach. Plaque building is one of the leading causes of early age tooth decay. 

Offer a Healthy Diet 

The connection between nutrition and a child’s dental health must be known to everyone. The food your kid consumes determines how healthy their teeth will be in the future. 

  • Fruits and veggies always come under a healthy diet chart. Moreover, cheese has been proved to trigger the building of saliva, which in turn helps wash away unwanted food particles from the mouth. 
  • Avoid chewy, sticky food like candies overall, syrup or caramel chocolates. It is necessary to brush teeth right after consuming such stuff. Sugary treats should also be avoided or given during meals to ensure that they do not stay back on your kid’s teeth. 
  • Eating snacks is never good for kids or adults. Frequent snacking may damage their teeth faster due to a lack of a clean mouth. 
  • Encourage your children to drink more water and make them consume less soda-like drinks. Sodas are bad for the teeth as well as their health.
