Children’s teeth need to be looked after gently and carefully.
Caring for your children’s teeth from an early age is of the utmost importance. Children’s Dentistry is a completely safe technique and will help your child to achieve and maintain dental health.
By the age of three most children will have all of their first primary teeth. The care and health of these teeth will also impact on the health of their permanent teeth – which need to last a life time.
The team at Broxbourne Dental Care will monitor your child’s oral development ensuring teeth align and function correctly for total health and appearance.
From around 2 years of age we recommend that you bring your child in for a visit. They will get to have a ride in the dental chair and find out more about their teeth. The Broxbourne Dental Care team will make your child feel right at home and help them to understand the importance of caring for their teeth.
Your child’s early dental experiences form their life approach to dental hygiene and care. By having routine check-ups at Broxbourne Dental Care from an early age, it can help to eliminate the fear of the Dentist and establish a good dental routine they can follow throughout their lives.
Tips for Kids Dental Hygiene:
Brushing to a Beat
To help your child enjoy brushing their teeth, why not turn on their favourite song. If they start brushing from the very beginning of the song to the end, it will help make the time go much faster and they will get their 2 minutes of brushing done in no time!
Young children learn best by imitation. Brushing together can help make brushing a fun part of your child’s daily routine. Parents will need to help until they feel confident that their child can reach all the tricky spots and brush with confidence.
Healthy eating habits are beneficial to your child’s overall well-being. Encourage your child to eat healthy snacks and discuss their food choices with them.
