Six tips to keep your children's teeth healthy as they head back to school.
Brush twice a day—morning and night. It’s always recommended. Parents of children who are younger than 7 should help their kids brush—they have not yet developed the dexterity to adequately brush their teeth themselves.
Schedule checkups. Always remember to see a dentist for checkups and cleanings every six months so problems can be dealt with when they're small—or, better yet, avoid dental problems all together!
