National Children’s Dental Health Month starts in February! How is your child’s dental care routine?
Your child is growing constantly. It can be difficult making sure your child is on the right, healthy path. One of the most important things you can keep in mind when it comes to your child’s health is their teeth.
From their first baby tooth to the day their last adult moller comes in, it is vital to their mouth health that we keep them clean. Promoting good eating habits, avoiding sugar and cleaning their teeth daily is paramount to making sure their mouth and teeth are healthy. There are some helpful and easy tips you and your child can follow to make their teeth shine:
- Brushing your teeth twice daily
- Eat a healthy and balanced diet
- Avoid too much sugar
- Teach your child to spit their toothpaste out when done
- Use toothpaste with fluoride
- Drink plenty of water
- Floss regularly
- Check in with your dental care provider at least once a year
