The start of a New Year is the perfect time to make a few changes in your child’s oral health routine to get them healthier teeth and gums in 2019. Beausejour Dental Centre has a few tips to make the next year full of smiles:
Drink More Water
Choosing water over juices or sports drinks will cut out a big cavity causing culprit – Sugar. Eliminating as much sugar in your child’s diet as possible can help ensure a cavity free 2019. Water also aids in keeping your child’s mouth clean by stimulating saliva production, and washing away food debris that can be harmful for tooth enamel.
Brush Twice a Day, Floss Once a Day
It’s important to develop an oral care routine for your little one, ensuring he or she is brushing at least twice a day for two minutes at a time. Letting them choose their favorite floss flavor can help make flossing once a day more enjoyable as well. Establishing a good brushing and flossing routine will keep your entire family cavity free in 2019!
Choose Healthy Snacks
Eating crunchy veggies helps your child naturally combat plaque, and provide vitamins and nutrients that are great for your child’s overall health. Apples, Celery, and Carrots are healthy snacks with fiber that help scrub away buildup and plaque on your child’s teeth.
