Remember that your dental health and your overall health are connected. It is important to eat a nutritious diet, rich in fresh fruits and vegetables. Your teeth are capable of living as long as you, as long as you take care of them. Brush and floss daily. Use a fluoride rinse. Visit your dentist twice a year. These are tips that you can do to keep your teeth healthy. Pregnant women or new mommies should see the dentist after they give birth due to the fact that the baby is getting some of their nutrients and sometimes this affects the mother’s oral health. Also it is a good idea to instill a good emotional vibe for the dentist with your children while they are young. Bring them in, let them meet us, we will try to make their first visit a very fun experience so that they want to come back! Help your children brush their teeth until you are completely confident they can do it on their own. For me that wasn’t until later in the teen years!
