What are some tips for caring for my child's teeth?

Giving your kids a great start on oral health sets the stage for building healthy habits that will serve them well throughout their entire lives.

Here's Some Of The Advice Our Bridgeton Dentist Offers

  • Bring them in regularly for check-ups. This helps to normalize the dentist so your child doesn’t develop fear.
  • Make brushing their teeth a habit, as essential as washing their hair.
  • Use a soft toothbrush and toothpaste to brush their teeth. Assist them with this task until they are old enough to manage it themselves (usually about age eight).
  • Even after they have the dexterity to brush independently, supervise them occasionally to make sure that they are still using good technique. Kids will be kids, after all!
  • Provide a healthy diet filled with calcium-rich foods such as dairy and vegetables like kale, spinach, and broccoli.
  • Discuss your child’s water habits with Dr. Burgdorf. If they are drinking bottled or filtered water, they may not be getting enough fluoride, which could lead to cavity-prone enamel.

Dr. Burgdorf and the rest of our team are excited to be partners in your family’s healthcare. Give us a call today to schedule your child’s checkup.
