In-Office Treatments to Help Kids
When your kids come into the office, we are looking for some specific things to help them maintain a healthy smile for LIFE. That’s right. We know that having a great smile for the rest of your life BEGINS when you are a kid, so we do what we can to protect those little teeth.
We begin by emphasizing those six month appointments. Your kids need to come in for cleanings and exams EVERY six months. Their teeth are constantly growing and changing. We have to be able to keep up!
If your child is struggling with decay, we can help you by offering fluoride treatments or dental sealants. Both options with strengthen and protect your kids’ teeth as they age!
At-Home Habits to Help Kids
We can do some thing in the office, but real dental care begins at home. We have a few things for you to consider. After you’ve read through our list, we hope you will sit down with your family and discuss ways that you can improve your family’s oral habits.
There’s always room for improvement, and this gives your kids a chance to chime in with their own ideas!
The beverages and snacks your children eat will definitely have an impact on their oral health. There is a lot to be said parents who are intentional about what goes in their kids’ bodies. We aren’t suggesting that your kids can never have a treat, but you can help your kids understand good snacks and bad snacks.
Our main concern is the intake of sugar. Things that juice, sports drinks, and soda make it difficult for kids to maintain healthy teeth. The same goes for snacks like fruit chews and candy. You should also avoid a lot of starchy snacks that stick to teeth.
Keep a balanced diet with lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, and drink plenty of water. Milk is a great beverage with a meal, and occasional treats are ok! It’s all about balance.
Your kids can help you figure out your daily routine. Getting up in the morning, eating breakfast, brushing teeth, etc. There’s a lot to think about, but you and your family can find a consistent schedule that INCLUDES oral health care!
Maybe your family needs to wake up 10 minutes earlier so that everyone has a chance to brush their teeth before the bus comes! Who knows what it will be for your family, but when your kids see you prioritizing time for oral health, they will begin to build the same habits!
Keeping it Fun
Above all, keep your family’s oral health fun! Let your kids indulge with fancy, fun toothbrushes and toothpaste. Keep sticker charts for toddlers and model your own oral health habits when your kids are around.
There are so many things you can do to help your child improve oral health! If you need more ideas, just give us a call! We would be happy to help!
