How can I help prevent mouth and teeth problems?

To prevent mouth and teeth problems:
  • Do not put a baby or toddler to bed with a bottle or sippy cup. The milk or drink will stay on the child's teeth all night. This can cause tooth decay.
  • Brush and floss your teeth regularly. Help your children do the same.
  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • See a dentist at least once every year. Take your children to see a dentist too.
