At Chesterfield Valley Dental, we appreciate how hectic and demanding family life can be. Busy parents often have many demands heaped upon them, and we want to make life easier. We understand that it might seem challenging to ensure that your family is doing their best at keeping their teeth clean.
As challenging as it might seem, it is essential that parents teach their children how important oral hygiene is—the younger, the better! Even with a busy schedule, there are ways to ensure that your family is as healthy as they can be.
You and your spouse can impress the importance of oral health onto your children at a young age with these easy tips:
Visit the Dentist Together
Our Chesterfield dental office loves seeing patients of all ages, and the experience is more fun (and convenient) if you schedule the whole family on the same day. Not only are you taking care of your entire family’s dental needs, but it also doubles as a fun family outing.
Brush and Floss as a Family
Not only should toddlers and young children be supervised to ensure a proper brushing routine, but parents can also make this fun and promote healthy oral habits each night. This helps set the habit for young children and is a fun family activity.
Eat Nutritious Balanced Meals
The number one culprit for cavities and tooth decay is the sugar in our diet. By encouraging your family to drink more water and stay away from sugary treats and sodas, you can help care for your family’s teeth and avoid cavities and gum disease.
