Dental Health

Your children are now losing their baby teeth and getting their permanent teeth.  We only get one set, so it is SUPER important that we take care of them the best we can.  Colgate Bright Smiles has lots of tips for parents and fun things for the kids to use to take care of teeth.  Here is a list of just a few things Colgate recommends we should be doing to help our child have healthy smiles:
  • Make sure your child brushes his/her teeth for 2 minutes twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. 
  • Make brushing fun for your kids by playing a song or setting a timer.
  • Change your child’s toothbrush every 3 months or when it becomes shaggy.
  • Floss your child’s teeth daily.
  • Visit your dentist regularly. 
  • Limit the number of snacks your child has throughout the day.  Plaque is the bacteria that lives in everyone’s mouth.  When food or any other drink (except water) makes contact with  teeth it makes an acid.  The acid eats at your teeth and can cause cavities.
  • Choose healthy snacks that are low in sugar (fresh fruit, raw vegetables, low-fat cheese, yogurt, or whole grain bread/crackers).
For more information and fun activities and apps to help your children learn more about taking care of their teeth, visit this website  or visit the library.  They have lots of fun children’s books to teach your children about caring for their teeth.
