  • Gently clean the top and bottom, inside and outside of the teeth twice a day.
  • Make it a habit to floss every day before bed.
  • You must get professional dental cleaning done once every six months or a year, this will keep the gums healthy and strong.
  • If the gums swell and bleed, a dentist must be consulted asap.
  • Avoid smoking.
  • After brushing, clean the tongue properly to get rid of germs present on the tongue.
  • Do not ignore any dental problems faced by children, any small problem can later turn big
