Thoughts on "Keeping your kid’s teeth healthy"

mariaminkov says:

Helping your youngster brush their teeth can be somewhat of a test, particularly toward the day’s end when you are depleted. It is easy to brush their teeth quickly, thinking you’ve properly done the job in less than a minute, but there can still be plenty of bacteria and plaque lying around. When your little one’s teeth grow in, bring them in for a check up so we can monitor the bite and their teeth. It will also get them used to coming to the dentist and not associate it with fear.
