Healthy Teeth

Tooth Brushing:

Tooth brushing with a toothpaste containing fluoride and flossing can provide an enormous benefit through plaque removal from tooth surfaces and the topical effect of the fluoride. You should see your dentist to be sure that you are using a technique that meets your needs. As soon as a child has teeth showing in their mouth, it is important for an adult to use a washcloth or gauze square to wipe the teeth with water. As the child gets older, the adult will continue to brush and then let the child copy this procedure to learn proper tooth-brushing techniques.

Use a soft, bristled brush and gently brush the teeth. Brushing too hard can cause gum damage. Be sure that the toothbrush is the correct size
 generally smaller is better than larger. Tilt the bristles at a 45-degree angle to the teeth. Slide the tips of the brush under the gums. Jiggle the bristles gently so that any plaque growing under the gum will be removed. Be sure to brush all sides of the teeth  the outside, the tongue and the tongue side, and the chewing surfaces. For the front teeth, brush the inside surfaces of the upper and lower jaws. Tilt the brush and make several up and down strokes. The front part of the brush should go over the teeth and gum tissues. Your toothbrush will only clean one or two teeth at a time. Change its position to properly clean each tooth. To prevent plaque damage, be sure to brush at least once a day, best at bedtime. Adding a second brush time after breakfast helps your chances of thorough daily plaque removal. Don't rush your brush. A brushing should take at least 3 minutes. A pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste is all you need. Replace your brush when the bristles begin to spread. A worn-out toothbrush will not properly clean your teeth. Change toothbrushes after a contagious illness also.
Dietary Needs:

The role of carbohydrates in promoting tooth decay is a true fact. The adolescent can benefit from diet analysis and make changes when decay is a problem. Diet analysis, along with professionally determined recommendations for maximal general and dental health, may be a part of an adolescent's dental health management. A diet analysis and management should consider: dental disease patterns, overall nutrient and energy needs, psychosocial aspects of adolescent nutrition and dietary carbohydrate intake with wellness considerations.

Eating a lot of snacks that have sugar may give your child cavities. Each time your child eats sugar, plaque in the mouth mixes with sugar to make acid. The acid hurts the teeth over time by eating away at the teeth. Your child needs to eat many kinds of foods: breads, milk, meat, vegetables and fruits. Saliva or water in the mouth helps reduce the damage sugar can cause to the teeth.
