The Best Dentist Advice for Caring for Kids’ Teeth

icons4x3200px

For your child to have a healthy smile as they grow and mature, they must develop good dental care habits at an early age. Try these trusted tips to give your child a healthy head start.

Start in Infancy

Your child’s baby teeth are at risk for decay from the moment they emerge. That’s why the ADA recommends that the first dental visit occur by their first birthday, and preferably within six months after their first tooth comes in.

Find the Best Dentist

It’s important to find the best dentist for your child’s needs because their first dental appointment can affect their how they feel about the dentist and dental care for the rest of their lives. Ask your pediatrician to recommend an affordable dentist, talk to your friends about the dentists their children see, or search online for a pediatric dentist and read reviews from other parents.

Preparing for the First Dental Visit

When you’ve found the best dentist for your child, you need to make the first dental appointment. This visit is primarily for the dentist to examine your child’s dental development and offer dental care advice, but it’s also for your child to become comfortable with the dentist. Try these tips to make the visit easier for you and your child:

  • Explain that the dentist is your child’s friend and wants to help them have healthy teeth and gums.
  • Be positive and get your child excited about visiting the dentist.
  • Schedule a morning appointment when children tend to be more cooperative.
  • Keep concerns or fears to yourself since kids can sense your anxiety.
  • Never bribe a child with toys or treats to get them to the appointment.

Ask About Fluoride

Kids need fluoride for healthy dental development. Fluoride is a mineral that helps make tooth enamel stronger and more resistant to decay, while restoring weakened enamel. It’s often added to toothpastes, mouth rinses, and community tap water. Ask your dentist about your child’s fluoride needs to ensure that their teeth get enough fluoride.
