Did you know that mothers with poor dental health could be at a higher risk of passing bacteria that causes cavities to their children? However, many things can be done to help decrease this risk, such as:  

  •  Having regular dental visits 
  •  Daily brushing and flossing 
  •  Having a healthy diet that is low in sugars and starches  
  •  Choosing a toothpaste with fluoride  
  •  Rinsing daily with an alcohol-free rinse. 
  •  Do not share eating utensils or things that can transmit bacteria with your children. 
  •  If you chew gum, choose something with xylitol, which can decrease your and your children’s caries rate.
