Orlando Dentist Marks National Children’s Dental Month

Did you know that February is national children’s dental month? It is important for children to develop good oral hygiene at an early age. As a parent, scheduling regular dental appointments when your child is young can help promote a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. It is also good to get your child to the dentist at a young age to lessen the fear and stigma of going to the dentist that plagues many adults. We are glad to offer comprehensive dental service in Orlando, FL. Click to see about getting a dental exam.

Dental Health Tips for Children

    • Make sure your child is brushing (preferably with fluoride toothpaste) 2 times per day, for 2 minutes each. Especially in the morning and before bed time!
    • Flossing every day is also essential, make it a bed time ritual along with teeth brushing!
    • Try to limit the intake of snacks with high sugar for your child, including sodas and sugary drinks.
    • Make sure you child visits the dentist twice a year, or every 6 months to ensure healthy teeth and gums and to get a good teeth cleaning!
