The first and the foremost tip to have good long lasting and healthy teeth is to brush twice a day. Most of the families are themselves not in a habit to brush twice a day and the children also pick up the same habit. However, research has shown that people brushing their teeth twice a day experienced fewer dental problems as compared to individuals brushing their teeth once a day.
Another point in consideration is the technique of brushing. Due to laziness or in a hurried brushing activity, your kids may not be giving the right cleaning to their teeth. Proper ten to fifteen minute of brushing your teeth is essential for it to be clean. There are a lot of videos on the internet that actually demonstrate the right way to brush. One can also consult the dentist to know correct methods of brushing. Regular dental checkups are a must for your little one especially during the period when they get their permanent teeth.
Another reason of cavity amongst young children is the over consumption of toffees, sweets, cola drinks and chips. The particles of these get stuck to the teeth which cause the decay and result in cavity and tooth ache.
Also teens with braces need to be careful because it is common that food is caught in the braces and stays close which can cause damage to the teeth. Hence braces should be regularly cleaned along with the teeth.
Oral hygiene is the most commonly ignored part of the human care.
