Oral health for children

Help your children achieve good oral health and avoid cavities by encouraging them to brush twice a day using fluoride toothpaste and floss daily to prevent plaque build up between teeth. Eating a healthy diet is also crucial for achieving good oral health in children. Taking your child to the dentist for regular checkups is also a crucial part of protecting your children's teeth and gums from cavities and tooth decay.

Importance of oral health

Not many people realise just how much of an effect our oral health has on our overall health. If bacteria in the mouth is not controlled, it can lead to infections in other parts of the body. For example, problems with the heart can be caused by mouth infections and problems in the digestive system can result from chemical processes in the mouth.  Regular brushing and flossing helps to prevent bacteria from thriving inside your mouth and spreading to the rest of your body.

Oral health tips

Oral health means teeth that are clean, gums that are pink and breath that does not smell. Your gums should not bleed or hurt when you floss or brush - if they do, it can indicate a bacterial problem. To achieve good oral health here are some practices that you can follow:
  • Brush twice a day.
  • Floss daily.
  • Eat balanced meals.
  • Lessen snacking between meals.
  • Use fluoride toothpaste.
  • Get regular dental check-ups
