How Can I Help My Child Have a Healthy Spring Smile?

Posted .

If you’re interested in helping your child have a top-notch spring smile, then our dentists, Drs. Kun, Jukneliene, Lee, and Buckley, are more than happy to help you. Your child deserves strong and healthy teeth and gums while they enjoy this new season! Fortunately, there are many things you can do to help your child reach those smile goals. Those things are:

-Bring them into our office: At their appointment, our dental team will provide a professional dental cleaning and exam to prevent dental problems and to ensure the teeth, gums and underlying bone are in tip-top shape. If a problem is detected, treatment will be provided to restore your child’s oral health.

-Help them clean and care for their smile: To do so, you need to make sure they are brushing their little chompers twice a day. As they brush, they should use a soft-bristled toothbrush and children’s toothpaste. You don’t need to worry about flossing their teeth until their chompers are tightly knit together, which is most likely when all of their teeth have erupted from the gums.

-Encourage the use of a mouthguard: If your child participates in high-contact sports and activities, then it’s important that they wear a mouthguard while doing so. A mouthguard can help them prevent oral injury when they get hit in the face.
