Spring is here and the weather is slowly getting warmer. Now is the time to get ready for outdoor activities and spring-related traditions! While you’re doing these things, our dentist, Dr. Preethy Jacob Kunthara, encourages you to think of your child’s smile. They deserve top-notch teeth and gums this spring! So, she recommends doing everything you can to clean and care for your child’s smile regularly. Here are some things you can do to help your child have a top-notch spring smile:
-Bring them into our office: During their appointment, our dental team will deeply clean their teeth and gums to help them prevent dental issues this spring. Our dentist will also examine the smile for any problems. If there are problems detected, she will provide the proper treatment to restore your child’s oral health.
-Help them clean and care for their smile: This means you need to brush and floss your child’s teeth regularly. In fact, it’s best to brush twice a day and floss once a day. However, flossing is not necessary if the teeth are not tightly knit together (like if all of their baby teeth have yet to grow into place, leaving space around the teeth).
-Encourage the use of a mouthguard: A mouthguard can protect your child’s teeth and gums when they participate in high-contact sports and activities. It can help prevent knocked-out and broken teeth as well as damaged gums when your child gets hit in the face.
