Dental Care Tips for Kids

 1. START DENTAL CARE AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE
  • Start thinking about proper dental habits as soon
    as your child is born yes, before they even
    have their first tooth! You can get into the
    habit of cleaning your babys gums with a soft
    washcloth or gauze pad, to remove bacteria from
    their mouth after feeding.
  • This will set you into a good routine for when
    teeth start developing, as well as getting your
    child used to having their gums wiped down and
    cleaned.
  • Its also important to be aware of the role of
    baby bottles in tooth decay. Letting your child
    fall asleep with a bottle of breast milk, formula
    or juice can dramatically increase the risk of
    tooth decay, from high sugar content of the
    fluids. Always stick to pure water in their
    bottle at bedtime.

2. AVOID FOOD AND DRINKS HIGH IN SUGAR
  • On a similar note, pay careful attention to the
    sugar content of food and drinks as your child
    grows older and starts consuming solid foods.
    Each time we ingest sugar, it takes our saliva at
    least 30 minutes to break it down and neutralise
    the acid levels in our mouths.
  • Eating or drinking highly sugared food and drinks
    increases acid levels which lead to bacteria
    causing tooth decay.

3. BRUSHING AND FLOSSING
  • As soon as your child turns 2, you can start
    teaching them about tooth brushing. Let your kids
    watch you cleaning your own teeth, and get them
    into a good routine morning and night.
  • Use fluoride toothpaste and a soft toothbrush and
    show them how to brush each tooth, and rinse
    their mouths properly. By the age of 6 kids
    should be able to brush their teeth by
    themselves.
  • Flossing can be a bit trickier for them to
    complete unaided gently floss between
    childrens teeth as soon as any 2 teeth touch.

4. MAKE A DENTAL APPOINTMENT
  • Dentists recommend that children have their first
    dental check-up before the age of 2, when most of
    their baby teeth are erupting and any signs of
    early childhood decay may be present. A good
    childrens dentist will be able to monitor your
    childs dental development, checking for any
    cavities, decay and gum disease, as well as
    providing advice for good oral health.
  • Look for a child-friendly dentist in your area
    that understands the importance of creating a
    positive dentist experience. You dont want your
    kids to associate the dentist with negative
    experiences, as this can carry through into their
    adult life causing them to neglect proper dental
    care.

5. PREVENT CAVITIES WITH REGULAR FLUORIDE
TREATMENTS
  • Fluoride treatments are essential for children to
    develop strong, healthy teeth. Your dentist can
    apply fluoride and sealants to your childs teeth
    to prevent food and plaque from getting stuck and
    to strengthen tooth enamel against decay.
