Dental Care Tips for the Family
As we approach another fall season filled with caramel dipped apples, pumpkin spiced ‘everything’ and bags of Halloween candy, you may be looking for ways to properly look after your teeth. Well, Limoges Dental Centre has a few dental care tips to maintain perfect hygiene for infants, children and adults.
Dental Care Tips for your Infant and Toddler – Make Brushing Your Routine
It is important to start cleaning your child’s teeth even before their first teeth come in. You can do this by wiping off their gums after each feeding with a warm, wet washcloth or a dampened piece of gauze wrapped around your finger. This will also inflict the routine of having to clean their teeth in the morning and in the evening from the very beginning. By the time they can brush their teeth all on their own, it will already be second nature to them.
Dental Care Tips for your Children – Parents Lead by Example
As parents, we play the biggest role in our children having a healthy smile as they continue to grow. If you make brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups a positive experience, dental hygiene becomes fun for kids. One of the most effective and easiest dental care tips is to brush and floss together- children love to mimic what their parents do.Baby teeth play an important role in helping your children bite and chew food, and speak clearly in later years. That is why it is important that we help children take care of their baby teeth before they start falling out.
Dental Care Tips for Adults – Take Time for Yourself
Life only seems to get busier, and time never slows. Your family’s days and nights are filled and different schedules sometimes collide.It is super important as adults, that we do not forget to take care of our own dental hygiene. In between scheduled appointments, brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily (your brushing is not complete without flossing), try and skip or at least reduce your sugar intake, use fluoride toothpaste and do not forget to brush your tongue.
We want to make sure you receive the tips to ensure everyone in your family will keep smiling their stunning smiles.It is important to teach our children the importance of good dental hygiene, as well as taking the necessary time to look after our own.
