We recommend that parents start dental treatment for their child when he or she is three years old. This is as simple and pleasant as taking them with you to their own dental appointment where their baby teeth are examined and polished with a soft brush, or bringing them to their own appointment in which the infant teeth of others are identified and polished.
Brush Your Teeth at Least Two Times Per Day
When foods high in carbohydrates (sugars and starches) are left on the teeth, tooth decay may occur. Bacteria in the mouth change the nutrients, turning them acidic. plaque is a combination of bacteria, food, acid, and saliva that adheres to teeth. The bacteria produce acids as a result of their metabolism, which eats away at the tooth enamel over time. Cavities are caused by acid production, which can be extremely unpleasant.
