    Six Tips for Kids’ Teeth.

    They lick the majority of the toothpaste off their toothbrush and use the rest to paint a mural on the bathroom mirror. They claim to have thoroughly brushed their tiny little teeth, but the “Smell My Breath, Mummy!” test says otherwise.

    Many parents endure this exasperation as their kids master the art of brushing their teeth.
    And, no, we can’t stop Johnny from using his toothbrush to groom the cat (“She told me she really likes it, Dad!”). But know that, as with most things in life, practice makes perfect.

    Inspire a good oral health following these tips:
     A dental examination should be a regular part of back-to-school preparation.
     Flossing once a day removes plaque and bacteria from between teeth, where a toothbrush can’t reach.
     Good oral health is part of overall health: The mouth is a window into the health of the body.
     Frequent snacking or sipping on sugary beverages such as soda, juice, sports drinks – even flavoured water – creates an environment for tooth decay by exposing teeth to acid.
     Replace toothbrushes every three to four months, or sooner, if bristles are worn.
     Always brush for two minutes, twice a day, every day.
