Two babies brushing teethAt our Sidney office, we know dental health is important to our overall health as adults, but what about children?
Oral health is also very important in children and starting healthy habits at an early age can make all the difference!
Children’s teeth need to be brushed once they arrive. As soon as a child’s teeth come in, they should be care for and brushed. Most parents are unaware of this and over 60% do not start this early. Flossing should also be started once teeth arrive and are touching each other.
Poor dental habits can contribute to cavities and other tooth decay as children age.
To help build proper dental routines, children should visit the dentist about 3 years of age or, earlier, if parents suspect there is a reason for concern.
If you have questions about how much toothpaste to use or what types of toothbrushes are safe, please contact us and we can help you find the answers!
