Visit our dental office for assistance with your child’s dental hygiene.
We know how much you love your child and want the best for them, which is why we want to emphasize the importance of their dental hygiene. Good dental hygiene is directly connected with your child’s oral health and their overall health as well.
Poor dental hygiene can lead to many issues during childhood and into adulthood, such as pain, difficulty eating, trouble breathing, and a weakened immune system. To ensure your child’s health and happiness, help them take care of their dental hygiene at home, and take them to regular dentist appointments.
When taking care of your child’s dental hygiene at home, make sure to do the following:
- Ensure they brush their teeth thoroughly twice a day. If your child is very young, help them use the right amount of toothpaste, reach the back of their mouth, and brush for two minutes.
- Teach your child to floss each day. Flossing is essential to remove bacteria and bits of food that get stuck in their teeth throughout the day.
- Help your child eat a healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals. Avoid excessive amounts of sugar, and make sure your child brushes their teeth after eating sugary foods.
Outside of the home, your child should have regular dentist appointments to get their teeth cleaned and checked. At Smile Cove Pediatric Dental, our dental office is unique in that all our dental services are geared towards children. We know that visiting a dentist’s office can be nerve-wracking for children of any age, so our friendly and welcoming staff works hard to make our office a comfortable place for your child.
