Your kids need dental care just as much as you do but you may not always know just what to do. You realize that since their smiles are still growing but yours is not, you may need to approach their care a bit differently. So, what’s the right approach? How to keep track of what feels like millions of little details that all add up to a healthy smile, you wonder? We can certainly help you out with three very important oral health recommendations, so growing smiles grow in a healthy manner!
#1: Home Care Is So Important
When you’re not really sure where to begin on your journey toward giving your children the best chance they have for exceptional oral health, remember that home care is so very important! While we are certainly going to suggest you bring your kiddos in to see us (in just a moment), don’t forget that the bulk of the dental care you and your entire family receive is at home. Your brushing is essential. Flossing is also essential. However, don’t overlook the that you must be consistent with dental hygiene (and avoiding smile dangers like too much sugar) in order to reap the benefits.
#2: Professional Care Is Equally Important!
Yes, as promised, we are going to suggest that you bring your kids in to see us, just like we highly recommend you come in to see us, too. Children and adults alike benefit greatly in regard to their oral health when seen two times each year for prevention. This will include a gentle and thorough dental cleaning. You can also expect a checkup that will give you insight into your child’s smile well being. If anything needs attention, we can fix it right up without complication (assuming you’re consistent with your visits)!
#3: Children’s Preventive Treatments Offer Enormous Extra Support
Now, don’t forget about the stuff we suggest just for the kiddos. Oral health protection for growing smiles means extra preventive care is always helpful. For teeth that grow strong and free of cavities, we offer both fluoride treatments at our practice, as well as dental sealants. Would you like to schedule these or learn more? Just let us know!
