Three Ways to Promote Your Child’s Healthy Dental Habits

A healthy smile promotes general health and helps to turn a bad day upside down. Teaching your child healthy dental habits ensures that her smile will be healthy and beautiful throughout her life.

Promote Healthy Smiles From the Beginning

Even before children have teeth, they should be taught to be proactive for dental health. Using an infant brush to gently clean gums can help establish a healthy pattern and can be especially comforting for children who are teething.

Make Oral Hygiene a Treat

One of the biggest mistakes parents make with young children is rewarding them with candy but treating oral hygiene like a chore. Guide children to embrace healthy habits by including great oral hygiene products whenever treats are given, especially at holidays when candy abounds.

Make Going to the Dentist an Adventure

Affirm the value of a trip to the dentist by making it into a family adventure or special day for just you and your child. Associating a trip to the dentist with family fun helps make healthy teeth a reality rather than just a dream.

Many adults have very fond memories of their pediatric dentists. Perhaps those adults had parents who understood how to offset the foibles of childhood that lead to poor dental habits. Visit New England Dental Health Services PC in Orange or Meriden to find a comforting dentist for your whole family.
