Best Dental Care Tips for Kids from the Best Dentists

icons4x3200px

While they’re young, your child’s dental care is in your hands. Now is the time to help them develop healthy dental habits so they can grow up with a great smile. Find the best dentist and follow this expert advice to teach your child proper dental care.

Show Kids How to Care for Their Teeth and Gums

It’s important to help your child develop good dental habits to be sure that their teeth and gums stay healthy. Follow these simple tips to teach your kids to take care of their teeth:

  • Brushing on Their Own

By the time your children are six years old, they should know how to brush on their own. They should be brushing in the morning and at night with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste.

  • Learning How to Floss

While this is a very important part of good dental care, many children have a hard time handling floss properly. Ask your dentist to demonstrate the right technique and then practice with your child at home until they’re comfortable using floss.

  • Eating Healthy Foods

Developing healthy teeth and gums requires proper nutrition. That’s why you need to feed your child nutritious foods such as whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and foods high in calcium. Equally as important as giving your kids healthy foods is limiting unhealthy options. Avoid feeding them foods and beverages that are sugary or full of processed carbohydrates because these can lead to cavities and other dental care problems.

  • Playing Sports

With rough play at recess and afterschool sports, children are at risk for chipping, breaking, or knocking out their teeth. Find the best dentist and talk about getting them a mouth guard to wear during sports and what to do in a dental emergency.

  • Staying Away from Secondhand Smoke

You may not be aware that tobacco smoke may contribute to the development of tooth decay and gum disease. That’s why the best dentists say you must keep your children far away from secondhand smoke, as well as teach them the dangers of smoking.

Find an Affordable Dentist in Longwood

An affordable dentist is your partner in helping to protect your child’s teeth and gums, so get them involved in teaching your child good dental care. The best dentist can help in many ways, including providing:

  • Dental Check-ups and Cleanings

Take your child to the dentist regularly to have their teeth cleaned and examined for dental problems.

  • Fluoride

Fluoride is needed for healthy dental development. It’s often added to toothpastes, mouthwashes, and community water systems, but some kids require more than others. Talk to an affordable dentist to determine whether a fluoride supplement or varnish would be good for your child’s teeth.

  • Sealants

When permanent teeth start emerging, the best dentist may recommend protecting these teeth from decay with dental sealants. These are simply coatings placed on the chewing surfaces of your child’s molars, which offer an extra level of protection.
