Getting Your Child To Practice Good Dental Health Habits

Sep. 11th 2022

For younger children parents should supervise their child teeth brushing, as brushing teeth can be hard for young children to do thoroughly. Your child needs to develop good motor control so that they are able to properly brush their teeth without adult supervision.

One way to test if your child is read to brush their teeth on their own is by using “Red Tablets” they highlight all that your child has missed when bushing and will let them learn how to brush better. You can get them online or at your local drug store.

Another quick way to test your child brushing is to have your child eat an Oreo cookie and then have them brush their teeth. If you can still see the Oreos, then you need to be checking and helping them brush.

Sep. 7th 2022

What can you do to maintain your child oral health

When it comes to good oral health care for your child/children make sure to choose healthy snacks and get adequate fluoride. Kids need a lot of water for hydration as well as to make their teeth stronger.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics they recommends that kids should not drink more than 4 oz. of juice per day, and the average juice box is 6 oz. Choosing water and snacks that do not contain simple carbohydrates will help. Good options include fresh fruits and vegetables, deli meat and cheeses. Also, you want to foster a good relationship between your kids and their dentist.

Baby Dental – Dental Flippers for Your Child

May. 14th 2022

My daughter knocked out a few of her front teeth. They were her baby teeth that would be coming out in a year or so. Her dentist was saying it is not to big of an issue at this point but would keep an eye on it to make sure her adult come in correctly.

I though I would like to get her a flipper like they have in the beauty pageants. I am just not sure were you go for them. I am guessing a dentist would make flippers, but about how much would they cost.

Reply: You would go to a dentist in regard to having a dental flipper. In general cost for a front flipper tooth can range between $300-$500 and up. You can also expect additional cost from periodic adjustments or repairs if needed.

Baby Dental, How do you get your child to use a children toothbrush

Feb. 1st 2018

Question: How do you start getting your child to brush their teeth.  My son is almost three and I am still brushing his teeth, because he will not do it on his own.  When he does try he just chews on the tooth brush he does not really brush his teeth.  Is he still to young to brush his own teeth?  Should I wait until he is older to get him to brush his teeth right?  Or is there a trick I can use to get him to brush is teeth correctly?

Reply: Many children like to copy their parents. Show him how to brush is teeth by brushing yours with him. You may have to do this a few times before he get it down. Try and make it fun to brush his teeth. Do you best to take your time with him.  Also your dentist will be able to give you very helpful advise if you find yourself still having trouble.
