Dental care

Keeping Healthy Teeth for a Lifetime

Knowing how to care for one’s teeth from the moment the first baby tooth arrives will help prevent problems as they age. This means brushing and flossing each day and going for routine dental visits. The pay-off is a beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.

Young Children

People are born with their first teeth hidden beneath the gums. From the first day they poke through, baby teeth need special care. It will be a while before a child’s toothbrush and paste can be used. For now a wet washcloth will do the trick. Once they are old enough, they need to be taught how to correctly use a brush and paste on their own.

Never let a baby fall asleep with a bottle. The milk or juice can lead to serious issues such as baby bottle tooth decay. As they grow, they need to be encouraged to eat snacks that are low in sugar and avoid chewy, sticky candies.


By the time they are teens they should be in the habit of going for regular check-ups to their family’s dentist. One can find a reliable Brooklyn dentist like Ronald I. Teichman, D.D.S. by researching online or asking friends and family for recommendations.

Teens who take good care of their teeth will have a beautiful smile, pleasant breath, and much fewer cavities than those who don’t. Teens need to brush with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and floss once each day. Smoking and chewing tobacco will stain the teeth and can cause cancer so these activities should be avoided completely. When playing sports, proper head gear will keep the teeth protected.


Continued care of the teeth into adulthood can help one avoid painful gums, tooth loss, and other serious issues. Brushing twice a day along with flossing needs to continue, and six month check-ups with the dentist should not be skipped.

Between dental visits an adult can check the inside of their mouth for themselves. Any irritated gums, sores that aren’t healing, or other unusual changes can be discussed with the dentist. Serious concerns should be looked at immediately by a professional.

It is easy to keep a beautiful smile for a lifetime with a little special care. Brush and floss daily and visit a dentist every six months for a routine check-up.


Good idea... dental care very important to keep healthy teeth... thanks for the reminder... sometimes we forget


I have been putting my children's 1st dental visit on hold since moved back to Kuching. Must find time to bring them to visit dentist some say.


It's good to really put effort into dental care.. Always smile with white perfect teeth..


Thanks for this reminder. I find that Westerners generally have stronger teeth and don't require filling at a young age compared to us.
