The easiest way to prevent tooth decay, especially in children, is by practicing good dental hygiene at home. This includes consistent dental care and regular visits to the dentist.
Kool Smiles, a dental practice focused on children’s care, can teach kids about dental hygiene and the proper ways to care for their teeth.
Taking care of teeth starts with dental hygiene at home. Proper brushing, flossing, and eating healthy food all make a huge difference in preventing tooth decay, especially for children. The correct way to brush teeth is also a dental hygiene must.
Here’s how kids should brush:
Dental hygiene at home does help teeth stay healthy, but tooth decay is only fully prevented with exams and cleanings by a dentist. This is especially true for children. Children should visit the dentist by the time their first tooth comes in.
Children who go to the dentist at a young age get comfortable sitting in the dentist’s chair and start on the path to a lifetime of healthy teeth and good dental hygiene.
Kool Smiles dentists have experience working with kids and really understand their dental health needs. They are able to explain the procedures and keep their patients comfortable and informed.
Plus, Kool Smiles makes dental care affordable and accessible. Our offices are located in areas that need them most, and we accept nearly every form of private insurance. We also accept Medicaid, state-sponsored children’s health insurance (SCHIP) and TRICARE.
Call us today or visit Kool Smiles online to schedule your child’s first appointment. We’re always accepting new patients and look forward to helping your kids!
