Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Brush her teeth twice and clean her tongue and make sure she does not eat excess acidic food before going to bed.

Ask her to make a habit of gargling with normal water after each food she takes.

Avoid acidic foods, deep-fried foods as well as those with high sugar content.
