What’s the best way to keep my child’s teeth healthy?

Children's Dentistry in Wilmington DEBeing proactive with your child’s oral health care is extremely important. It can lay the groundwork for a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles. We are pleased to treat your children, and we value the trust you place in us to look after their dental health.

The easiest and most effective ways you can help keep your child’s teeth healthy is with proper oral hygiene habits. When they’re very young, you will need to help them to make sure their brushing and flossing is effective. As they get older, they can brush and floss by themselves, but you should still check to make sure that they are doing a thorough job.

Routine exams and cleanings are also critical. During an exam we will do a thorough cleaning and examine each tooth carefully. This allows us to closely monitor their teeth to ensure proper development and to make recommendations for fluoride and sealants as necessary.

Leading by example is important too – let your child see that you are serious about your oral health care, which will encourage them to feel good about taking care of their own teeth. A lifetime of excellent oral health is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child!
