February is National Children’s Dental Health Month!

With February being National Children’s Dental Health Month, we thought to share a few good oral hygiene tips for your kids. 

Here are few tips that you should take care of for HEALTHY SMILE OF YOUR LITTLE ONE..:)

• Teeth brushing techniques: It takes only two minutes to properly brush, using short, gentle strokes and devoting extra attention to the gum-line, areas around fillings and hard-to-reach areas such as the back teeth.
• Flossing: teach your child to hold the floss snugly between thumbs and index finger and place between each of the teeth, making sure to go beneath the gum-line and curving the floss around the base of each tooth.
 Snack wisely: choose healthy snacks such as vegetables, fruits and cheese and avoid sticky, chewy candies that can stick to the teeth. If your children eat these snacks, make sure to brush after doing so.
• Carbonated or sugary drinks: these beverages create acids that can damage the teeth when mixed with saliva, so they should be avoided altogether. When drinking one of these beverages, avoid sipping on it throughout the day. Rather,let them have a drink and then brush the teeth.
 Regular dental visits: You should visit a dentist regularly (at least once in 6 months)

National Children’s Dental Health Month, now in its 64th year, aims to increase awareness about the importance of kids’ oral health
