HELP YOUR CHILD TO MAINTAIN GOOD ORAL HYGIENE
It's never too early to start taking care of your child's teeth. In fact, it's recommended that you start cleaning your baby's gums even before their first tooth comes in. As soon as their first tooth appears, you can start using a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean their teeth and gums. Caring for your child's teeth is essential for their overall oral health and well-being. As a parent, you want to provide the best dental care for your little one and ensure that they develop strong, healthy teeth.
HOW DO I LOOK AFTER MY CHILD'S TEETH?
To maintain good oral health, it's important that your child brushes their teeth at least twice a day, with fluoride toothpaste, and flosses once a day. Encourage your child to make brushing and flossing a part of their daily routine, and make it fun by letting them choose their own toothbrush and toothpaste. In addition to brushing and flossing, it's important to limit sugary drinks and snacks. Encourage your child to drink water and eat nutritious foods that are good for their overall health and dental health.
TIPS TO MAKE CHILDREN MORE COMFORTABLE DURING DENTAL VISITS
Visiting the dentist can be scary for children, especially if they haven't been to a dental clinic before. To make their visits more comfortable, it's important to educate them about dentistry and what they can expect during their appointment. Explain to your child that the dentist is a professional who will help them keep their teeth healthy and strong. You can also read books and watch videos together that explain what happens during a dental exam and treatment. It's a good idea to choose a family dental practice that specialises in treating children and has an experienced dentist who is friendly and patient with children. This way, your child will feel more comfortable and relaxed during their appointment.
