The mouth is a mirror for your child’s overall health and wellbeing. Your oral health is closely linked to your overall health, and we want to help your child maintain good total wellbeing by helping them maintain a healthy smile.
If your child experiences oral health problems early in life, this can lead to serious health problems both during childhood and in the future. At Deer Creek Children's Dentistry, we strive to help your child maintain excellent oral health and avoid these problems. To do so, we encourage good oral hygiene and preventive treatments. Some simple yet essential dental hygiene practices including:
- Brushing at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
- Flossing at least once a day
- Replacing your child’s toothbrush every 3-4 months
- Eating a balanced, healthy diet and limiting snacks in between meals
- Regularly bringing your child to the dentist for checkups, exams, and cleanings
These simple practices can go a long way in helping your child’s smile to stay healthy, as well as helping them maintain good overall health. If you would like your child to receive an overall health assessment, please feel free to contact our office today. We are happy to also provide you with more information about the relationship between oral health and total wellbeing.
