Oral Health Advice for Kids

Posted .

Do you want to help your kid have the top-notch oral health they deserve? If so, our dentist, Dr. Josh Walker, is happy to help you by giving you the tips you need. There are things you can do regularly to keep your kid’s teeth, gums, and smile in the best shape possible. Those things are:

-Make sure your kid is cleaning their teeth regularly (Have them use a soft-bristled toothbrush that is child sized to clean their smile every morning and night.)

-Make sure your kid visits their dentist (Bring them to our office every six months.)

-Make sure your kid doesn’t eat many tooth-harming foods (It’s best to have them eat foods like fruits, veggies, and dairy products.)

-Make sure your kid doesn’t go to bed with a bottle or sippy cup of milk (Going to bed with a beverage other than water can cause baby bottle tooth decay.)

-Make oral hygiene fun (Do this by giving them oral hygiene tools with their favorite cartoon characters on them or by playing their favorite song as they brush.)

-Make losing teeth fun (Do this by having the Tooth Fairy visit each time a chomper falls out of the mouth.)
