7 Healthy Dental Habits for Kids...
- Start them off right. As soon as your child’s first tooth appears, make daily cleaning (and later brushing) a habit....
- Don’t wait. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child go to the dentist by age 1 or within six months after the first tooth erupts.
- Seal the deal. Talk to your dentist about applying a sealant to protect back teeth from cavities.
- Just enough fluoride. A pea-sized dab of fluoride toothpaste is just enough to help your child strengthen their teeth’s enamel.
- Brush, floss, repeat. Brush twice a day and floss daily to guard against tooth decay and gum disease.
- Eat smart. A well-balanced diet including fruits, vegetables, dairy and whole grains is essential to healthy teeth and gums.
- Regular dental visits. To prevent cavities, confirm normal development and guard against oral health issues, make sure your child sees a dentist at least every six months.
