Mouth is correctly the window for the health of the body. It is therefore important to maintain good dental hygiene. A lot of children and adults face some dental issue or the other, and so may go through a lot of pain during the dental problem phase. Prevention is indeed better than cure and carrying good hygiene is the way to prevent many such issues.

A lot of food that we eat causes the microscopic organisms in the mouth to create acids. Sugary food especially leads to plaque formation. Let us now look at ways on how to maintain Oral Hygiene:

Regular brushing

Brush at least twice a day. Make sure you brush before going to bed as it helps you get rid of the germs and plaque that accumulate throughout the day.

Also, the way you brush your teeth is also equally important. Take your time, move the toothbrush gently and in circular motions to remove plaque.

Floss properly

Flossing plays an important role in removing all the small food particles from the teeth.

Minimize the intake of sugar and soda

Regular Dental-check-ups

Consume food that is good for oral health -This includes milk and milk products, vegetable and fiber rich foods and fluoride rich food items. 

These are some of the ways of improving oral hygiene properly. You should make sure these are a part of your child's lifestyle as following these can really help in achieving nice dental health. Oral health is very important to enjoy eating food.
