How often should I go to the dentist? How can I look after my child's teeth? Why should I use dental floss? Which foods and drinks containing sugar cause tooth decay? Are pregnant women entitled to free NHS dental treatment? Why should I use interdental brushes? How many soft or fizzy drinks can children have a day?

According to me 1) everyone should visit dentist after every 3 months so that we can prevent damage further because once patient having a pain than we have only two options, either go for rct or extraction 2) dental brushes has bristles which can not go between your teeth or above contact point so to clean those areas we are advising dental floss. 3) tooth decay has no particular reasons but avoid beverages, soft drinks. They are not good for teeth or health. 4) nhs. I think it's available in uk only not in india 5) interdental brush are advisable to those who has gap in between teeth which causes food enlodgement, so to clean that area person needs that brush. 6) to avoid tooth decay brush twice a day with proper brushing technique, and floss once a day too, after every meal or drink rinse your mouth properly and visit your dentist every 6 moths atleast for regular dental check up.

You can visit dentist every six months. Flossing helps clean interdental tooth region. All food drinks with sugar causes decay. How old is your child? its best not to give them fizzy drinks.
