As Pediatric Dentists in San Diego we know it can be difficult to keep your children’s teeth healthy between visits. So here are some easy tips from Children’s Dentistry of San Diego that will make your children’s teeth and gums healthy between visits.
Establish a Schedule
Establishing a brushing schedule where you and your child brush your teeth together. The easiest schedule is right in the morning after breakfast and again before bed. Stick to the routine and soon your kids will be reminding you that its time to brush.
Stay Away From Sugar
Provide you kids with balanced meals and stay away from sugar between meals. Try substituting sugary snacks with natural sweets like fruits and add in some crackers or other low sugar snack.
Reinforce Proper Brushing Methods
Kids often stray from using the brushing techniques they learn at the dentist. If you notice your child not doing a good job brushing give them a little refresher on the proper brushing techniques.
