The first and most important step to healthy teeth is regular brushing and flossing. Together with healthy eating habits and regular dental check-ups, most of the dental problems, such as cavities and gum diseases, can well be avoided altogether. Moreover, good oral health is essential for maintaining our general health. Because we only have one set of permanent teeth, it is never too early to teach children how to care for their teeth, so that it can become a habit for a lifetime.
