Celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month!
February is National Children’s Dental Health month! Throughout the month, dentists and healthcare providers work together to educate on and promote the benefits of good oral health starting at a young age. In honor of this special event, we are offering half off all fluoride and sealant treatments to our patients at our office in Cary, NC. Call us to schedule your appointment today!
Developing good oral health habits early and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on healthy teeth and gums. It is so important for the parents of our young patients to encourage good brushing and flossing habits in their children from an early age.
Here are some tips for encouraging your kids to adopt dental health at an early age:
- Model Good Behavior! Kids take cues from their parents, and by setting a good example for your children you can encourage them to brush early! Treat brushing your teeth as a fun activity rather than a chore will help your kids get excited about brushing their own teeth, and you get clean, healthy teeth!
- Try a Dissolving Agent! Dissolving agents are tablets that can be found at pharmacies that reveal plaque on the teeth. The color indicates where children need to brush and get a healthy clean smile. This can become an easy game for children!
- Offer Choices! Children love to be in control, and why not let them in their oral health! Let your kids choose the color of their toothbrush or the brand of toothpaste and floss they like. This will help your kids become more invested in their own oral health and that they have a role!
A lifetime of healthy smiles starts with good oral health! To schedule an appointment, contact us today!View All News
