Teach your child about good oral hygiene as soon as possible. This means keeping the teeth and mouth clean. It begins when your child's first baby tooth appears, and it includes:
- Brushing with a toothbrush and toothpaste at least twice each day
- Using dental floss after meals to clean between teeth
- Visiting the pediatric dentist twice each year for routine checkups and cleanings
Oral hygiene can prevent many problems and help your child achieve the best possible results from treatment.
