Raising kids is tough work. As a parent, you want what’s best for them. What’s really hard is trying to help them understand that what’s best for them in the long-term is also good for them now.
A good example of that is oral health. Kids rarely enjoy brushing their teeth, let alone flossing. But the more you help your kids improve their oral health at that young age, the better it will be as they grow up. That means you’ll spend less money on filling cavities and treating other oral health problems.
Bring them in early
To help get your kids on the right oral health track, you should bring them to a dentist when they get their first tooth or have their first birthday. You’ll want to see Dr. Craig Chlebicki or Dr. Christopher Charles soon after whichever event occurs first.
Make it fun
If you can make oral health fun for your kids, the chances of them doing great with it on their own rise exponentially. Reminding them of the rewards they get at our offices in Brentcourt Dental Group in Brentwood, California, when they come in for checkups, helps a lot. On top of that, you might want to consider giving your kids some sort of reward at home for being good with brushing.
