Tips for Better Dental Health


Follow these tips for better dental health:
  • Even if you are not experiencing pain or discomfort, it is recommended that you visit your dentist every six months for a check-up and cleaning.
  • Bring your child for a check-up six months after the first baby tooth appears. It is good to begin good oral hygiene habits at home. Talk to your dentist or hygienist.
  • Do not allow your infant to use the feeding bottle as a pacifier, unless it contains only water.
  • Wipe your baby’s gums daily with a clean warm damp washcloth.
  • Brush your teeth at least two times a day using a toothpaste with fluoride.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Avoiding snacking frequently in between meals on snacks such as sodas, juices, and candy.
  • Choose healthy snacks such as fruits, vegetables, and popcorn.
  • Wear a mouth guard when playing sports.
  • Wear a night guard at bedtime if you grind your teeth during your sleep.
