Healthy Teeth for Life: 10 Tips for Families

By Dr. Sidi

  1. Start children early.
    Bring your children to dental care as early as age 6 months to get regular check up and dental consultation.
  2. Seal off trouble.
    Use preventive measures and professional dental fluoride and pit and fissure sealant for kids.
  3. Use enough — but not too much — fluoride.
    Adult and kids percentage of fluoride in toothpaste is not the same, get advice for your dentist.
  4. Brush at least twice a day (using Soft Brush) and floss daily.
  5. Rinse or chew gum after meals.
  6. Block blows to teeth. (Use mouth guard to protect your teeth from injury during sport and so on)
  7. Don’t smoke or use smokeless tobacco.
    Tobacco stains teeth and significantly increases the risk of gum disease and oral cancer.
  8. Eat smart. Eat well balanced food.
  9. Avoid sugary foods.
  10. Make an appointment. We recommend a dental check-up every 6 months — more often if you have problems like gum disease.
