Preventive Care

Maintaining dental health from a young age is crucial. With good home care and regular dental visits, your child can enjoy a radiant, healthy smile for years. Here’s a streamlined guide to preventing plaque and cavities:

  • Ensure your child brushes twice daily using a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, including the tongue’s surface for freshness.
  • Floss daily to reach spaces between teeth where a toothbrush might miss. Consider a mouthwash for added bacteria protection and fresher breath.
  • Encourage a balanced diet and limit sugary treats. Opt for nutritious snacks like raw veggies, yogurt, cheese, or fruit.
  • Schedule dentist visits every six months for professional cleanings.
  • Discuss dental sealants with your dentist; they shield the back teeth from potential decay.
  • If your child is into sports, ask about protective mouthguards.
