Once you have a child, your priorities in life shift dramatically. The love and protection of your child becomes the top priority in all parents’ minds. One way to protect your children’s health is by helping to preserve their oral health.
Preservation At Home
The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes with fluoride toothpaste. Children should be supervised to ensure they are performing the full extent of the brushing. Why not set a timer and brush your teeth together? They also should be cleaning between their teeth once per day. If their motor skills are not able to floss correctly, you may need to do it for them or try using other types of interdental cleaners. The American Dental Association provides activities for children to promote healthy dental habits. You can also protect the oral health of your children by limiting sugary drinks and treats.
