Oral health issues and risks of not brushing their teeth or improperly brushing.

– It should be common for every person to brush their teeth. Especially, brushing their teeth twice a day. Some people have their own beliefs on how often one should brush their teeth. It is important to prevent cavities during the night as well.

– Dentists suggest that the morning round should be done after eating. There may be some that believe that brushing before eating is safest. It is true that one can feel uncomfortable to eat with cavities from overnight.

-It is important to teach children how to properly brush the teeth, and help them in the process to make sure that their little teeth are strong and healthy.

She makes sure she brushes the teeth from inside, and outside, and that the little ones doesn’t eat all the toothpaste.
