Bring on the Smiles for National Children’s Dental Health Month

Children's Dental Health Month

Are you helping your kids keep their smiles healthy and bright? February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, and dentists across the nation are busy preparing for the ADA’s Give Kids a Smile Program. Dental professionals who participate in the program provide dental services for children in their communities who don’t have easy access to proper dental care. It’s essential to get your child regular dental check-ups, but practicing good oral health habits at home can stop many problems before they start. Here are a few essential tips to keep your kids’ dental care habits on the right track.

Essential Dental Care Tips for Parents

  • Set an example. Practice good oral hygiene yourself, and let your kids see what you’re doing. They’re likely to mimic your behaviors.
  • Teach your kids to brush twice daily using an ADA-approved toothpaste; a pea-sized amount should be used with a soft-bristled brush. Show them how to brush all surfaces of their teeth and along the gum line. Finish by brushing the tongue. When a child reaches four years of age, begin flossing between the teeth gently.
  • Feed your kids a healthy, balanced diet with plenty of vitamins and minerals, especially calcium and phosphorus for strong bones and teeth. Limit snacks containing sugars and starches. These foods form acids that attack tooth enamel and lead to decay and cavities.
  • If your child has an accident and injures his or her teeth or gums, call or see your dentist immediately.

Be sure that your children get regular dental check-ups to catch potential problems early. If necessary, your dentist can apply dental sealants to strengthen teeth and prevent decay. With the help of good habits at home and regular professional dental care from a dentist in Orlando, your children can enjoy great oral health for life.
