We recommend scheduling your child’s first dental visit within six months of their first tooth erupting or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. Early dental visits allow our pediatric dentists to monitor your child’s oral health, provide preventive care, and offer guidance on proper oral hygiene practices.
To promote good oral hygiene habits, encourage your child to brush their teeth at least twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Help them with brushing until they have the dexterity to do it effectively themselves, usually around the age of 6.
Dental sealants are a protective coating applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars) to prevent tooth decay. They act as a barrier against bacteria and food particles that can lead to cavities. Dental sealants are especially beneficial for children,children who may have difficulty reaching these areas while brushing.
Creating a positive attitude towards dental visits starts at home. Use positive language when discussing dental care with your child, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a healthy smile. Read books or watch videos about dental visits to familiarize them with the process.
A balanced diet plays a vital role in your child’s oral health. Limit their intake of sugary foods and beverages, as they can contribute to tooth decay. Encourage them to eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, and dairy products that provide essential nutrients for strong teeth and gums. Drinking water instead of sugary drinks can also help promote good oral health.
