Tips for children to maintain great oral health for a lifetime
- At what age should my child first visit the dentist? – It is recommended by the American Dental Association that your child have their first dental visit at age 1, or within 6 months of their first tooth appearing. From this point on, your child should visit the dentist twice a year. By ensuring that your child attends constant appointments with their dentist, you can certify that things are progressing normally and on the right track to outstanding oral health.
- Help ingrain trust in dentists – It is crucial to teach your child early on about the importance that dentists have on their lives. Enforce the fact that they are caregivers who are looking out for their teeth and ultimately their wellbeing as opposed to scary mouth doctors who wish to inflict pain for no apparent reason.
- Promote proper nutrition – As does any part of your body, your oral health requires healthy eating habits. With an abundance of child-targeted foods and snacks containing sugar, children are highly susceptible to getting cavities. Refrain from giving your child sugary snacks and beverages and instead choose healthier alternatives such as low-sugar fruits, vegetables, and drinking water more regularly.
