Top 5 Dental Care Tips for Kids
2
In children dentistry, tooth decay is one of the
most common chronic diseases of children from 6
to 19 years old. Such fact is unfortunate
considering that tooth decay is largely
preventable with proper dental care among kids,
which parents must encourage among their children
by being role models themselves. Here then are
the top 5 dental care tips for kids that parents
must adopt and what we recommend parents at our
Blackburn Dental Clinic, Healthy Smiles.

Parents should choose the best childrens
dentist Melbourne clinic as soon as the first
tooth grows out of his/her gums. Keep in mind
that every toddler should have seen a dentist six
months after his/her first tooth comes out or by
the time he/she is a year old, whichever comes
first. It also makes sense to have an emergency
dentist on speed dial for any emergency with
teeth.

According to practitioners of children
dentistry like Healthy Smiles, baby teeth should
be cleaned with a clean piece of cotton ball or
cotton bud to prevent the accumulation of plaque.
Too many toddlers suffer from tooth decay because
of failure to adopt such a simple dental hygiene
step.

As any practitioner of children dentistry
will say, proper dental care for kids starts at
home. Parents must be relatively strict about the
routines related to brushing and flossing not
only because their childrens health are their
main responsibility but also because dental care
for damaged teeth and/or diseased gums can be
costly.

Implement a regular brushing and flossing
schedule preferably after every meal although two
times daily after breakfast and dinner is
sufficient for the purpose. Assist the
children when brushing and flossing so as to
guide them in the proper ways to do so.
Motivate the kids to brush and floss by offering
rewards like small stickers. This is also a
strategy used by practitioners of children
dentistry in their clinics.

Many cases of tooth decay are brought by
unhealthy eating and drinking habits. Prevention
being better than the cure, here are a few tips
in this regard

Avoid putting down the child for a nap with his
bottle of milk or juice. These sugary liquids
provide food for bacteria inside the mouth, thus,
resulting in tooth decay-inducing acids. Water is
a better option. Limit beverages in sippy
cups. The sugary liquids in juice can result in
decay on the back of the childs front teeth.
Ditch the pacifier for toddlers preferably by the
age of 2. Long-term use can also lead to tooth
decay

Of course, encouraging kids to eat healthy food
items like fruits and vegetables is the stable
advice where practitioners of children dentistry
are concerned.

With kids being difficult patients when it
comes to the administration of medicine,
manufacturers of kids medicines usually place
flavours, sugars and other additives in their
products. When these substances stick on the
teeth, the risk for tooth decay increases for
obvious reasons. Also, the use of antibiotics can
increase the risk for yeast infections in the
mouth known as oral thrush.

The solution Ask the practitioners of children
dentistry the dentist or dental hygienist, to
be exact about the frequency of brushing and
flossing for your child.

This is a no-brainer. Practice what you
preach and the kids will most likely follow your
example. Brush and floss your teeth on a regular
basis get regular dental check-ups and adopt
healthy eating habits as well as healthy
lifestyle habits affecting dental health (i.e.,
drinking soda and smoking cigarettes), all of
which are essential to good dental health.
