It is often said that your mouth is the mirror to your overall health and well-being. Well, it’s true. Over many years, scientists and doctors have studied and proved how your oral health can affect the rest of your health. At our practice, our focus is on your family, and we want to help your child maintain a high quality of life by maintaining high oral health.
When your child keeps their mouth clean, they can help the rest of their body fight off infection and disease. However, letting go of oral health can lead to several serious health problems both early in life and in the future. At our practice, our goal is to help your child prevent any oral or overall health problems that could be avoided by proper oral hygiene habits and preventive treatments. Some simple and important dental hygiene practices are:
- Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
- Floss daily
- Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months
- Eat a healthy diet and limit snacks between meals
- Regularly visit the dentist for cleanings and checkups
By implementing these simple practices, your child is well on their way to achieving excellent oral health. Our team is happy to answer any questions and provide any necessary treatment to keep your child’s smile healthy for life. We invite you to call or visit our office to learn more about how your child’s well-being is affected by their oral health.
