Professional dental cleanings are important for maintaining great oral health. However, it is vital that your child continues good dental hygiene at home as well.
Dr. Brown recommends brushing at least twice per day and flossing daily. You should brush and floss your child’s teeth until they are old enough to do this unassisted. This helps prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues.
There are additional ways to help keep teeth strong and healthy. Toothpastes and mouth rinses with fluoride are available over-the-counter. Eating a balanced diet and limiting sugary snacks can also contribute to good oral health.
When you can, have your child drink a glass of water after meals. This can help wash away sugars from foods and drinks. If something your child eats or drinks contains acids, such as sodas or candies, have them wait 30 minutes before brushing. This will allow their saliva time to neutralize the acids and protect their teeth.
Healthy dental hygiene habits can help keep your child’s teeth strong and beautiful. If you have any questions about your child’s current dental hygiene routine, please contact us.
