Keep Your Child’s Tiny Teeth Healthy

 

slide1Dental hygiene is an essential part of life. Taking care of your teeth now is the best method for preventing serious problems down the road. Unfortunately, children don’t understand the value of dental hygiene. It’s up to parents to inculcate their children in the necessity of a dedicated dental hygiene routine.

Here are some strategies that you can apply to make the job easier for you and your child.

Start as early as possible

Your child’s oral hygiene habits will be more effective if you start as early as possible. In fact, an oral condition called Baby Bottle Tooth Decay can occur even when your child is just weeks old. Prevent this by gently wiping your baby’s gums using a clean gauze. When his or her first teeth begin to erupt, don’t forget to brush your child’s teeth with an infant toothbrush and water. Keep sugary drinks to a minimum. Flossing can begin as early as age four.

Don’t forget the basics

It’s your job to teach your child the basics of good oral health. They don’t have to know complicated stuff about their dental health yet. Simple rules such as brushing twice a day, flossing, and limiting sugary and starchy foods is enough. It is also essential that you introduce the dentist in a fun, yet honest way to your child.
