Children (Ages 0-12)

Children oral health tips


Children’s dental health lays the foundation for a lifetime of strong teeth and healthy smiles. Parents play a crucial role in teaching oral care habits early on.

Key Dental Issues:

  • Tooth decay: Children are susceptible to cavities due to their love for sugary foods and inadequate brushing.
  • Developing teeth: Ensuring proper growth and alignment of baby teeth is essential for a healthy adult smile.

Oral Care Tips:

  • Begin cleaning your baby’s gums with a soft cloth before teeth appear.
  • Once teeth erupt, use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled brush.
  • Supervise brushing until the child is around 6-8 years old to ensure they are brushing effectively.
  • Limit sugary snacks and encourage a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.
  • Consider dental sealants to protect molars from cavities.

Adolescents and Teens (Ages 13-19)

The teenage years bring new challenges and responsibilities, including maintaining oral hygiene despite busy schedules and changes in dietary habits.

Key Dental Issues:

  • Orthodontic treatment: Many teens undergo orthodontic treatment, which requires extra attention to cleaning around braces.
  • Gum health: Hormonal changes can lead to gum sensitivity and inflammation.
  • Wisdom teeth: Wisdom teeth can start erupting during these years, potentially causing discomfort and alignment issues.

Oral Care Tips:

  • Continue regular brushing and flossing, paying special attention to areas around braces if applicable.
  • Choose braces-friendly foods to avoid damaging orthodontic appliances.
  • Use mouthguards during sports to prevent dental injuries.
  • Maintain a balanced diet and limit acidic and sugary foods to protect tooth enamel.
  • Monitor the eruption of wisdom teeth and consult a dentist if there are concerns.


Young Adults and Middle-Aged Adults (Ages 20-49)

Juggling work, family, and personal commitments, this age group often neglects oral care routines, leading to preventable dental issues.

Key Dental Issues:

  • Tooth sensitivity: Gum recession and enamel wear can increase tooth sensitivity.
  • Teeth staining: Coffee, tea, and certain foods can lead to teeth discolouration.
  • Gum disease: Poor oral hygiene can result in gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Oral Care Tips:

  • Brush and floss regularly to prevent plaque buildup and gum disease.
  • Use toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth if needed.
  • Consider professional teeth whitening options to combat staining.
  • Maintain regular dental check-ups and cleanings to catch and address issues early.
  • Avoid tobacco products and limit alcohol consumption for better oral health.


Seniors (Ages 50 and above)

Maintaining oral health becomes even more critical as we age to prevent complications that could impact overall health.

Key Dental Issues:

  • Dry mouth: Medications and age-related changes can lead to reduced saliva production.
  • Tooth decay and gum disease: These conditions can worsen with age and lead to tooth loss.
  • Oral cancer: The risk of oral cancer increases with age.

Oral Care Tips:

  • Stay hydrated to combat dry mouth; use sugar-free gum or lozenges to stimulate saliva production.
  • Brush with fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristle brush, and floss daily.
  • Address ill-fitting dentures to prevent discomfort and sores.
  • Attend regular dental check-ups and screenings for oral cancer.

Dr Ritika is Excellent at her job! We got dental care for my husband and she did a impressive job. We live in the US and found her contact information on Instagram. She took time and worked on every detailed aspect to give my husband the perfect set of teeth. I highly recommend her.
Dr Ritika was fantastic from the word go. From my initial telephonic consult to the detail of requirement, following by the consult in her dental studio in Mumbai.Dr was also honest in her reccomdation and commend her for that.The fitting and final fitting was truly professional. I would go back in a heart beat.

I’m from Australia & had been considering a smile makeover with dental crowns for some time. In the lead up to finally making a decision, I had a tooth break at the gum line & considering that my remaining teeth were worn down due to grinding, had fillings or went missing over the years - I had to act. After researching quite a number of dentists, I chose Dr Ritika Arora’s Aesthetic Smiles Dental Clinic mainly due to the reviews that I read which included local and overseas based patients. I have just recently finished the first stages of my smile makeover which included crowns for my existing teeth, 2 extractions & a number of implants for missing teeth. So far so good & I must say that I have been impressed with the way Dr Ritika has carried out the work as well as the work carried out by her consulting specialist doctors. I will be returning in about 5 months time after the first stage of the implants have had time to fuse with the bone. On return, the implants will be finished off with the final crown work. If you are considering any major aesthetic and or dental implant work - I would highly recommend this clinic for the quality of the work & competitiveness of their pricing. Thank you Dr Ritika Arora & I look forward to seeing you in a few months for the final result.

As someone who has struggled with juvenile periodontitis since the age of 16, I've worked with dentists around the world, and it was refreshing to find a dentist that I was able to work with directly from beginning to end. Dr. Arora was highly professional, thoughtful, and empathetic throughout the process. I had already started the process and had implants in place, and she helped me with six abutments and a total of 26 crowns. I reached out a few weeks before my trip, and she responded immediately. She took the time to talk through my history, and I could speak with her directly, not one of her assistants. She was very transparent and empathetic to my situation. She addressed my concerns about fees and followed through by not making it about money right when I showed up at her office. She paid attention to every detail and was thorough and getting the job done, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to get some solid work done, whether it be implants or cosmetic work.

Visited for dental implants Was looking for a good dental clinic in mumbai , found Dr Ritika online and was quite impressed with her credentials and the reviews on google I was struggling with a old broken bridge with missing teeth . On Consultation with Dr Ritika suggested me immediate dental implants. I had 3 teeth extracted and 3 dental implants place on the same day . The procedure was painless though there was some nagging discomfort for a few days later which is quite normal when you have so much dental work done in one sitting After 4 months the dental implants were restored with 4 ceramic crowns. I happy to be back to enjoying my food. Modern clinic , very professional , affordable and the overall experience at Aesthetic smiles dental clinic is good especially for nervous patients like me who tend to neglect dental treatment Highly recommended
