Children’s Dentistry in Chesapeake, VA
The best way to start teaching children about good oral hygiene is by modeling good habits yourself. Help them brush their teeth after every meal and talk to them about the importance of good oral hygiene, including the importance of flossing between their teeth and encouraging them to use fluoride toothpaste before bed—being careful not to swallow the toothpaste.
If you notice your child is brushing too lightly or not at all, we can help you with steps that can be taken to improve their oral health.
Good oral health starts with good oral hygiene. Teaching children about proper oral hygiene from a young age can help them develop good habits that will last a lifetime. Our dentists are available to answer any questions you and your children have about oral hygiene and can help you develop a plan to keep your children’s teeth and gums healthy.
