The best thing you can do for your child’s lifelong dental health is to help them develop good oral hygiene habits at as early an age as possible. You can set a good example for your children by exhibiting good oral hygiene for them and by teaching them the importance of dental care for kids.
1. Regular Family Brushing
Brushing twice a day with your child will help them build a solid habit that will last a lifetime.
2. Sugar Avoidance
Teaching your child to avoid excessive sugary foods is key to supporting their oral and overall health.
3. Regular Professional Dental Care
Regular dental care is critical, not only important for oral health, but also to spot oral health conditions that otherwise might go undetected.
4. Practice & Support
Brushing and flossing with your child is the best way to teach them good techniques and establish the habit.
5. Healthy Diets
Good nutrition is about more than just sugar avoidance. Proper nutrient intake is also needed for teeth, gums, and saliva to remain healthy and support immunity.
