Oral cavity contains so many parts like Teeth, Gum and Tongue. Taking care of your mouth, teeth and gum is worthy goal in and  of itself. Good oral and dental hygiene can prevent bad breath, teeth decay and gum disease– can help you keep your teeth as you grow older.

Teeth are covered  with hard coating called Enamel. Every day, a thin film of bacteria called dental plaque build ups on your teeth. This bacteria in plaque produces acid which can harm the enamel and cause cavities. Brushing and flossing your teeth can prevent decay.

You can prevent problem by taking these stapes :

 1: Brush your teeth regularly

Brushing is the most affective steps to clean your teeth and gum as well. Use soft bristle brush which helps to remove plaques and debris. Bushing should be done in morning and at night before bed time.

Children under the age of 2 years shouldn’t use toothpaste, use water to brush your child’s teeth.

Never let your child sleep after having bottle of milk. Milk stays on teeth and cause cavity it known as baby-bottle tooth decay.
