Creating a Healthy Future for Your Children’s Teeth!
So many dental problems can be prevented by starting children young with regular dental visits. We welcome the opportunity to provide dental services to ensure your children's teeth are bright and healthy, one tooth at a time.
Keeping Your Child’s Teeth Healthy and Clean
Great dental health starts at home! As a parent, ensure your child has healthy eating habits. Any kind of sugar (natural or otherwise) will mix with germs in your child’s mouth, so be sure to limit the sugar quantity your child consumes each day. Serve healthy snacks as much as possible and be vigilant in what you give your child – even some cough syrups have sugars in them! If you do serve sweets, choose to do so at meals only, when there is more saliva in the mouth to help wash away the sugars.
Preventing Future Dental Problems
Ensure that your child’s teeth get cleaned daily. Since young children cannot clean their own teeth, it’s important that you do it for them. A good rule of thumb is that once your child can write (not print) their own name, they are ready to tackle brushing their own teeth – under your supervision.
Choose a toothbrush that is the right size for your child’s mouth and is soft, with rounded bristles. A new one will need to be purchased every three to four months since children can be hard on toothbrushes. Otherwise, bristles can get worn down and bent. Having a damaged toothbrush will not only prevent an effective brushing job from being completed, but your child’s gums may also get hurt.
Healthy Oral Hygiene Starts as a Baby!
Even with a baby, it’s important to practice good oral hygiene and we can teach you how! Not only does this start your child off with great dental habits, but it ensures that when they get teeth, their mouth will be a clean environment.
