Healthy Dental Habits for Kids
| 2 min read
- Schedule a visit: Seeing a dentist twice a year should be established at a young age. Your dentist will check the progress of the “grown-up” teeth and your kid can continue getting used to the process of visiting the dentist.
- Start early: Problems with baby teeth can impact permanent teeth, so start the oral care habits early. Some dentists even suggest wiping your baby’s gums clean with a soft wash cloth.
- Make brushing fun: Showing your child that brushing his or her teeth can be a fun thing to do as a family could make teeth brushing time a little less stressful. If your child has lost a few teeth, be sure to brush the gums as well.
- Seal it up: It’s become more and more popular for dentists to apply a sealant to children’s permanent molars to help protect the tooth from developing cavities. Be sure to talk to you dentist about options.
