Introduce Your Children to Good Oral Care Early

Tooth Pain

The developing minds of very young children are like sponges. They absorb much more than their parents realize.


In many instances, the habits children develop as toddlers can stay with them throughout their entire lives. So if their moms and dads don’t prioritize things like good oral health habits early, it can lead to trouble 20, 30 or even 50 years down the road.


Brushing and Gargling


When children start to get their baby teeth, they can often come in unevenly or with large gaps between their teeth. So flossing usually isn’t as critical as it is for grownups. But brushing and gargling with mouthwash is important for good oral health no matter what the person’s age.


Kids should start brushing their teeth after every meal as soon as they start getting teeth. Not only will it remove food particles and help prevent plaque formation, but it also will develop lifelong habits that can ensure dental health for decades to come.


Gargling with mouthwash also helps keep teeth and gums healthy. It also can help prevent things like bad breath, sore throats, and other problems. If you are concerned about children accidentally swallowing the alcohol found in some mouthwash brands, dilute it with a little water or choose an alcohol-free mouthwash.


Oral Care – Dental Insurance Coverage  


Many family dental policies don’t stipulate how old children need to be before they are covered by insurance. So dental appointments even for the youngest members of your family may be covered by your dental insurance.


If you aren’t sure, just ask. Our billing department clerks are experts at demystifying dental insurance policy boilerplate. Just give us a call and let us figure it out for you.


Getting children into the habit of taking care of their teeth will not only help keep their smiles brighter but also help them lead healthier, more productive lives.
