Six Ways to Keep Your Kids Teeth Healthy This School Year
As thousands of students are heading back to school this week, parents are checking of their lists from clothing to pencils. But is Dental health in this List?
“Helping your child learn good dental health habits is the start of a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums,” says Dr. Romani Nashid, owner of Smile View Dental in Oshawa. Get each day off to a healthy start by making sure your child brushes well after breakfast.
Six good habits for healthy teeth:
• Brush twice a day, morning and evening, to remove plaque from teeth and gums. Plaque is a sticky layer of germs that forms on teeth and gums. It can cause cavities and gum disease if it isn’t removed.
• Floss between your child’s teeth once a day. This will remove plaque from between teeth and under the gums.
• Check your child’s teeth often. If you notice any brown or white spots on your child’s teeth, call a dentist. If they’re not treated, these spots can lead to tooth decay.
• Protect your child’s teeth. Teach your child not to chew on things like pencils and to be careful when playing on swings, slides and other playground equipment.
• Pack healthy, tooth-friendly, snacks for your child to eat at school. Sticky, sugary snacks cling to the teeth and cause tooth decay.
• Take your child to the dentist regularly. From their first birthday on, children should have regular visits to the dentist. Dentist can catch problems before they can become serious.
