How Can You Encourage Good Oral Hygiene Habits in Children?

As a parent, it’s up to you to provide your child with a strong dental foundation. You can easily accomplish this goal by giving your child the dental care they need and providing proper oral hygiene instructions. Give your child a healthy head start by making a dentist appointment for their first dental evaluation by the age of one. Keep taking them back to the dentist for twice-yearly cleanings and exams all throughout their development. If your child is afraid of seeing the dentist or resists daily dental care, ask our helpful staff to give you a few ideas on easing their experience. You can try promising some type of healthy reward for good behavior at the dentist or making daily brushing and flossing into a fu or silly activity. Call our office for more helpful children’s hygiene suggestions.

How Can You Practice Good Dental Hygiene?

Start by getting professional dental checkups and teeth cleanings from one of our highly-skilled dentists, and then maintain the healthy results by practicing good daily hygiene at home. Some oral hygiene tips for developing a quality home hygiene routine include brushing with a soft-bristled brush and using a fluoride toothpaste for tooth enamel protection. Brush your teeth when you wake up, following meals, and before getting into bed at night. And floss every day to dislodge the food and bacteria that gets caught between your teeth and leads to dental decay. For additional ideas on maintaining an at-home dental hygiene routine, call our office anytime.
