Healthy Oral Habits Mean Healthy Teeth For Life

Proper oral care for kids is paramount in preserving their smile as well as ensuring that they have strong and healthy teeth for life. It all starts with proper dental cleaning and regular check-ups with the dentist to point out and treat any developing problems early enough. Dentists also advise you on the right dental products for your kid’s use and inform you about common procedures that may benefit your kid’s dental care.

How To Choose The Right Toothpaste & Toothbrush

Getting the right toothpaste and toothbrush to clean your kid’s teeth is crucial. It’s important to ask for advice from your dentist on the right dental products to give your kid healthy teeth for life. Remember to only use toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, dental floss, and other dental products that are approved by the American Dental Association (ADA) for safety purposes.

Anatomy Of The Tooth

The tooth has a beautiful and interesting anatomy to study. It’s divided into various parts with the most common ones being the enamel, dentin and gums. The enamel is the outer, shiny and white surface covering the dentin and pulp (nerve). Dentin is the part below the enamel while pulp is the one below it. The pulp is the center-most part of the tooth containing blood vessels and nerves; it nourishes the dentin.
