  • You need plenty of calcium for your teeth. It is essential for the teeth as well as your bones. It is better to drink milk, fortified orange juice and to eat yogurt, broccoli, cheese, and other dairy products.
  • Drinking milk after eating sweet foods can reduce the damage sugar can do to your teeth
  • The benefits of dark chocolate. “Real” chocolate has a good source of polyphenols, natural chemicals that can limit oral bacteria.
  • Peanuts are a great source of calcium and vitamin D, and almonds offer good amounts of calcium, which is beneficial to teeth and gums.

Don't Feed the Bacteria

Bacteria normally found in the mouth feed off sugars and starches. If you don’t brush your teeth after eating sweets and carbohydrates, plaque quickly grows on your teeth.

I Have Smooth Teeth

If your teeth don't feel smooth to the touch, it is time to brush. Run your tongue on the surface of your teeth. If they feel bumpy or rough, you have plaque on your teeth. Follow through and brush those babies, since dental plaque is made up of about 300 different kinds of bacteria, the Children’s Dental Health Center says or have any questions call your kid friendly dentist near you.

Nobody Has a Tongue like Mine

No two people have the same fingerprints and the same is true for tongues and teeth. Your tongue has its own unique tongue print that no one else has. Imagine if people collected tongue prints instead of fingerprints as a form of identification.

Summer is here, and your family's schedule is topsy-turvy. That means getting your kids to eat right and maintain good oral hygiene can be a struggle. And with all this extra activity.

Keep Up That Oral Hygiene

Brushing twice a day and flossing daily is as important in the summer as it is in any other season. But with vacations, camp and lots of days spent at the pool, don't be surprised if you frequently need to remind your kids to brush and floss.

Now is a great time to buy new toothbrushes to replace the old, worn out or "germy" ones. In fact, you should stock up on extra brushes, as well as travel-sized toothpaste and floss for those summer trips and days out.

Now is the Time for Checkups

Parents tend to schedule dental checkups in August, right before class starts. But to prevent dental problems over summer, book the kids in right after school ends. This way, the kids will have a clean bill of dental health for summer. The last thing you want is a child suffering from a toothache while away on summer vacation.

Stock a Healthy Kitchen

Keep the summer from being an "acid attack" on your family's teeth by investing in healthy snacks. It's hard to limit snacking when the kids are home all day, but with the availability of fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, you can stock the fridge with healthy options. Be sure to keep the fruits and veggies clean and ready to grab. You'll feel better about snacking when the kids are reaching for blueberries and strawberries instead of candy and cookies. And swap out the sugary, acidic soft drinks with bottled water.

What is tooth decay?

Tooth decay is the destruction of the tooth structure and can affect both the enamel (the outer coating of the tooth) and the dentin layer of the tooth.

These are five ways to prevent tooth decay from occurring:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride containing tooth paste. Brush after every meal and especially before going to bed.
  • Clean your teeth daily with dental floss.
  • Rinse daily with fluoride contain mouthwash.
  • Eat nutritious balanced meals and limit snacks. Avoid carbohydrates such as pretzels, candy and chips.
  • Also you can ask your kids dentist about dental sealants ( a plastic coating applied to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth (molars) to protect them from decay.

4 Major Reasons Why Flossing Is Important

  • If you don’t floss, you miss cleaning about 35% of each tooth surface.
  • Flossing removes any plaque from between your teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach.
  • If you go to a pediatric dentist they will let you know that flossing is the most important technique you can do to prevent gum problems. Tiny food particles become lodged in the spaces where the gums and teeth meet. The plaque will harden into tartar and tartar can eventually lead to gingivitis (inflammation of the gums).
  • Flossing prevents tartar buildup. Plaque that remains on the teeth eventually hardens into tartar. Tartar is very difficult to remove and, usually, can only be removed by professional teeth cleaning at the dentist office. Flossing helps to reduce and prevent tartar buildup.
