5 tips to maintain your kid’s oral health

Dental health in kids is a must, and there is no better time to instill a healthy routine, than when they are young. 

While you make appointments for your baby’s overall physical health, you should also not forget to get a dentist to check out your child’s teeth.

Good dental health is not just about keeping teeth clean. It involves maintaining the gums, cheeks, soft tissues, palate, lips, and jaws. It is never too early to start caring for your oral health.

While taking care of your dental health is a job for a lifetime, getting kids started early helps lay a foundation for good habits.

Protecting your child’s teeth today will prevent problems in the future.

 

Here are some tips to take care of your kid’s teeth.

Don’t feed your kid milk before bedtime
The natural sugars in the milk contribute to baby tooth decay. This is especially more during the night when the baby’s saliva production decreases when they sleep. However, if you do have to give milk to your kid before bedtime, make them drink water and wipe their teeth and/or gums with a damp cloth to remove milk residue.

 

Don’t encourage the use of pacifiers
While many parents consider pacifiers as god-send, pacifiers can do more harm than good. Using a pacifier continuously can make the growing teeth misaligned and create problems in the future.

 

It is never too early to brush
Start your kids young when it comes to brushing. While this may seem odd when they don’t even have teeth, you can use a soft cloth to wipe their gums every morning and at night before sleep. This will help establish a good oral care routine. Once their teeth emerge, you can switch to a soft toothbrush.

 

Feed your children a healthy diet
A diet that predominantly consists of sugars will increase the chances of tooth decay. Ensure that you feed your children food that is high in fibre, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, etc. Ensure that you include fluorine in the diet. Fluorine is an important mineral that helps strengthen the teeth.

 

Schedule Dental visits
Schedule dental visits with a paediatric dentist every six months for your children to prevent cavities and decay. Ensure that you follow all the instructions provided by the dentist.

With these tips, your child will have strong and healthy teeth, that will lay the foundation for a lifetime of good health well into adulthood.
