Teaching Kids Healthy Teeth Habits

dca-blog_choosing-child-dentist

Tooth decay is on the decline among the total population in the United States, but among children, rates are rising. More and more family dentistry experts are seeing children as young as four years old arrive for their first dental care visit with multiple cavities and damaged oral tissue. It is a common myth that the baby teeth do not need as much care as the adult teeth. While the primary teeth may be temporary, the surrounding tissues must last a lifetime, making proper dental care essential from a very early age.  You can ensure your child enjoys a bright beautiful smile for many years to come with these tips for teaching kids about healthy teeth habits.

Remember that baby teeth require dental care. While baby teeth may be only temporary, they need proper dental care. Failure to care for your child’s primary teeth can cause hard-to-treat or irreversible damage that can affect the development of their secondary teeth, cause problems with speech, and put your child at risk for disease. You can begin cleaning your child’s teeth before the first tooth even emerges, by wiping your baby’s gums with a soft cloth after feeding. When your child’s first tooth emerges, you can begin teaching them how to use a toothbrush and the importance of a dental care routine.  You will need to supervise and assist for several years to ensure proper cleaning occurs.

Visit a family dentistry expert at an early age. Take your child to an affordable dentist when his or her first tooth emerges. This will not only ensure that your child feels comfortable with dental care visits, alleviating potential for dental anxiety, but will also give you all the tools you need to maximize your child’s dental care. A family dentistry professional can help you with brushing techniques for children and even recommend dental care products designed for children. Plus, studies have shown that routine preventive visits to the dentist makes dental care more affordable, costing 40 percent less than for someone who skips routine visits.

Eat a healthy diet. Try to keep snack and meal choices in line with those recommended for a healthy diet, such as vegetables, lean proteins, and crunchy fruits. Avoid sugary foods like candy and fruit juices to protect your child’s dental health. Starchy foods like bread and crackers can also contribute to tooth decay, especially if this debris is not routinely removed. The sugar molecules in starchy and sugary foods can combine with oral bacteria and erode the tooth enamel. Help your child carefully clean his or her teeth and gums after meals and snacks, and after drinking milk and juice.

Schedule routine visits to the family dentistry office, be a good role model, and make dental care fun.
