How can I keep my child’s teeth healthy?

Part of our children’s dentistry program in our Fayetteville dental office includes home hygiene instruction and nutritional counseling with parents in addition to preventive dental treatments to reduce cavities and protect the smile.

Here are some tips to keep your little one’s smile comfortable and disease-free:

Make Regular Pediatric Dental Appointments

Your child’s preventive dental check-ups and cleanings are the best way to avoid serious oral health conditions and dental emergencies.

Today’s technology, including digital dental x-rays, ensures the earliest detection and diagnosis possible.

Use Fluoride Toothpaste and Brush Their Teeth Properly

Kids need help brushing their teeth until about age nine or ten when they can manage the dexterity necessary to do a good job.

Brush for at least two minutes twice a day and floss at least once per day.

Disclosing tablets can help your child adjust to brushing their teeth on their own by showing areas they might have missed.

Opt for Additional Decay-Preventing Treatments

Fluoride application – fluoride strengthens enamel to prevent decay

Sealants – place a barrier between decay-causing bacteria and the deep grooves of your child’s teeth
