You want your little ones to be happy and healthy, and that includes dental health too. At King Smile Dentistry, we provide pediatric dentistry services, so the entire family can visit one location for all dental needs. To help with your little ones’ oral care, we have provided some helpful tips below.
Brushing Teeth Twice a Day
When your child is old enough to brush their teeth on their own, it is vital that they’re brushing at least twice a day. We recommend brushing in the morning and before going to bed. Your child should also start the routine of flossing at least once a day when they are young, so they stick with it as they grow older.
We understand children love to eat chocolate and other sugary snacks. However, you can substitute a few of these sweet treats for healthy snacks to help reduce their chance of developing cavities.
Regular Dental Visits
One way to ensure your child has a healthy mouth is to bring them to their dental checkup visit twice a year. We schedule these appointments like adult dental appointments for cleanings and to keep an eye out for anything unusual such as cavities, so we can treat it right away.
