February is Full of Smiles for Kids Who Practice Great Dental Care

Children's Dental Health Month

Family dentistry experts around the country are getting ready for February, which is designated as National Children’s Dental Health Month. As part of the ADA’s Give Kids a Smile Program, many professionals provide dental services for children in underserved families who would not otherwise have access to proper dental care. Regular visits to the dentist are important, but parents can prevent many potentially expensive and painful dental problems by doing their part at home. Observing the following guidelines can help keep little smiles healthy.

Dental Care Tips for Parents

  • Teach your kids to brush twice a day with an ADA-approved toothpaste and a child’s soft-bristled toothbrush. Teach them to brush all surfaces of their teeth, along the gum line, and their tongue. When a child reaches four years of age, begin gently flossing between the teeth.
  • Be a role model. If your children see you practicing good oral hygiene, they’re likely to mimic your behaviors.
  • Give your children a healthy diet with plenty of vitamins and minerals—especially calcium and phosphorus for strong bones and teeth. Limit starchy and sugary foods, which form acids that lead to tooth decay and cavities.
  • If your child injures his or her teeth or gums, see your dentist in Baltimore immediately.

To catch potential problems early, be sure that your children get regular dental check-ups. With the proper dental care habits at home and regular visits to a dentist in Baltimore, your children can enjoy a lifetime of good oral health.
