Proper tooth brushing is essential for good dental hygiene. Parents help their kids practice proper brushing by starting to clean teeth early. Her are other things parents can do to ensure good oral health for their family: ·Use fluoride toothpaste. ·Floss teeth daily. ·Eat regular, nutritious meals and avoid between-meal snacks. ·Ask your child’s dentist about how sealants can protect teeth from decay. Talk to your family dentist about the best way to protect your child’s teeth if your drinking water is not fluoridated.
