The American Dental Association recommends that you, and your child, visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings. Regular dental visits help your child to maintain a bright and healthy smile. During the check-up, the pediatric dentist will review your child’s medical and dental history and gently examine your child’s teeth, oral tissues and jaws. The teeth will be cleaned and polished and topical fluoride will be applied.
Brush your child’s teeth for them at least two times a day, recommended up to age 12!
Floss your child’s teeth once a day, when they are touching or in contact with each other.
Serve your child a balanced diet, limiting daily exposures to sugar rich drinks and treats.
Limit snacking and only drink water between mealtimes.
Visit the dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings after the first tooth appears.
