Preventative Dental Care for Long-Lasting Good Oral Health
Young or old, big or little, preventive dental care is crucial. With regular dental checkups and as long as you encourage your child to practice good oral hygiene habits, you’ll help him maintain the healthiest, brightest smile he can have his whole life long. It is our mission at Smilez Pediatric Dental Group Loudoun to equip our patients and their parents with an understanding of the importance of routine preventive dental care.
Regular cleanings and checkups should be scheduled twice yearly, so that any damage or decay can be caught, and treated early. Early detection is key to keeping small issues from becoming big problems.
It’s easy to prevent plaque build up and cavities.
Start them early. Encourage your child to brush and floss twice per day with a fluoride toothpaste and a soft bristled toothbrush. This will help remove trapped food particles and plaque from the surface of the teeth, and tongue, and cheeks too. For good oral health, eat well-balanced meals; avoid sugary snacks whenever possible, and choose raw vegetables, cheese, fruit, or plain yogurt instead.
