Teaching Children Good Oral Habits Early On Leads to Lifelong Rewards
Dakota Dental invites family dental patients to teach children good oral health habits from a young age.
By: Dakota Dental
Dakota Dental suggests modeling proper brushing and flossing techniques to children everyday. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean teeth at least twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and floss at least once daily. Dakota Dental’s family dentists are happy to provide suggestions for dental care products and devices at your request.
Preventive dentistry goes beyond brushing and flossing. It is also important to eat a wide variety of fruit, vegetables, and whole grains to keep the body healthy. Limit the amount of starches and sugars consumed each day and choose water over beverages that contain acids or sweeteners.
In addition to proper cleaning and eating habits, taking care of your teeth also involves scheduling regular check ups and cleanings with your family dentists. By visiting Dakota Dental or another provider of dentistry services, parents can demonstrate the importance of good oral health to their children and show them there is nothing to fear.
Dakota Dental offers a free first dental health exam for children under the age of three. During this exam, parents receive tips and instruction for developing dental care habits with their young ones. Additionally, the Dakota Dental family dentists will check for potential risk factors in children as well as decay of teeth or cavities on teeth.
