To make sure my kid's teeth stay healthy, I take them to visit our local dentist every three to four months. That way, they get the proper treatment that will help them with both their oral and overall health. Some people don't realize how much your oral health can affect your wellbeing, but poor oral health can affect your quality of life including your physical, mental and social well-being. Your dentist can help detect, diagnose, treat and prevent problems you might not know you or your kids may have.
That's why it's best to visit a dentist on a regular basis. So be sure to give your dentist a call soon to set an appointment for you and your family. Don't have a family dentist? You can visit the Ontario Dental Association website to find one in your area.
In the meantime, here are a few tips that can help keep you and your family's teeth healthy:
- Brush your teeth for 2-3 minutes at least twice a day to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
- Eat a balanced diet that includes whole grains, fruits & veggies, and lean meats.
- Wear a mouth guard when playing aggressive sports and activities.
- Visit your dentist regularly
