Brush your teeth at least twice a day for two to three minutes. Make sure to get the outer and inner surfaces and the chewing surfaces of each tooth
Encourage children to brush by making it a family activity.
Floss once a day to remove plaque from between teeth. Help children learn healthy flossing habits so when they're capable, they know how to do it properly.
Eat a healthy diet, rich in fruit and veggies. Avoid sugary foods and eat a high fiber diet of fruits and veggies such as apples and carrots to help prevent tooth decay.
See the dentist regularly. Children should start seeing a dentist within six months of getting their first tooth.
Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if it becomes frayed.
