It's Tooth Tip Tuesday and here's some great advice! .

Atlantic Pediatric Dentistry offers some great tips for parents on how to help kids take care of their teeth:

1. Have your kids brush twice a day and floss once a day.

2, Gum disease and tooth decay remain big problems...and NOT just for older people. Three-fourths of teenagers have gums that bleed, according to the ADHA.

Along with the basic advice, remember:

-- Toothbrushes should be changed 3 - 4 times a year.

-- Those with braces may need to use special toothbrushes and other oral hygiene tools to brush their teeth.

-- Some kids find it easier to use an electric toothbrush.
