Dental Health

Properly caring for your teeth is important from a young age in life. Early treatment prevents problems that could affect personal health, well-being, self-image and overall achievement. Brushing, flossing and visiting your dentist for regular evaluations will keep your dental health in great shape.

Your Child’s Teeth

Parents should teach their children to practice good dental hygiene and it is recommended by the American Dental Hygiene Associate to introduce a routine as early as infancy. For example, clean your infant’s gums after feeding with a water-soaked cloth. Use a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to brush your baby’s teeth. Teach your child at age 2 or 3 about proper brushing techniques and a few years later teach them gentle flossing techniques. Make sure to visit your dentist regularly with your child to check for cavities and possible developmental problems.
