Dentist for Kids Calgary
by Dr. Michael Popp on Dec 27, 2016

It’s not always easy to convince your children to visit the dentist or take proper care of their teeth, especially when they are very young. Sometimes, no amount of explanation can make them care about good oral hygiene.

So why not appeal to their childhood imagination and tell them how happy the Tooth Fairy will be if they take care of their teeth? Our children’s dentist has some great dental tips that kids can easily understand, remember and have fun with if they know it’ll earn them points with the Tooth Fairy.

4 Dental Tips To Help Your Kids Take Care Of Their Teeth

  1. Visit The Kid’s Dentist Regularly For Strong Teeth

Most children dread visiting the dentist. Soothe their fears by telling them that the Tooth Fairy will undoubtedly be proud of their bravery and their shiny, superhero teeth.

At Marlborough Dental Centre, we provide a wide range of affordable children’s dentistry services to keep your child’s teeth shiny, strong and healthy. Our kid’s dentists are gentle and friendly, committed to taking good care of your child’s teeth while making the visit enjoyable.

  1. Brush Twice a Day

Germs are the Tooth Fairy’s worst enemy because they destroy children’s teeth. Tell your young ones that they will make the tooth fairy very happy by brushing twice a day and banishing all the germs from their mouth.

Brushing teeth twice daily has many benefits for your children including:

  • Prevents cavities and tooth decay
  • Prevents gum disease
  • Keeps teeth shiny and white
  • Taking good care of their teeth now can save money in the long run

Tip from a Children’s Dentist: Make brushing fun by singing a song or offering a reward afterwards such as a sticker or letting your child pick a bedtime story. 

  1. Floss

Not all germs can be eliminated by just brushing. Let your children know that while flossing can be tiresome, the Tooth Fairy believes it’s very important so that no germs are left lurking in the dark corners of their mouths. In fact, flossing is so effective, they only have to do it once a day!

Most kid’s dentists recommend that parents begin teaching their children how to floss by the age of 2. Be sure to use floss that is soft and gentle, so it doesn’t hurt your child’s teeth and gums.

  1. Eat Lots of Healthy Food

To encourage your children to stay away from the sugary and starchy snacks, let them know that they will earn brownie points with the Tooth Fairy if they choose healthy fruits and vegetables instead.

Along with regular visits to your kid’s dentist, good nutrition is one of the key ways to improve your child’s oral health. By ensuring they follow a balanced and nutritional diet, you can lower their risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

NUTRITIONAL TIPS FROM OUR CALGARY KID’S DENTIST

  • Use fluoride toothpaste for your child after they have any snacks or meal.
  • When packing children’s snacks, opt for healthy food groups such as raw vegetables and fruits as well as nuts and dairy.
  • Limit all sugary foods such as cookies, cakes and sweets as these increase your child’s risks of developing cavities and periodontal disease.
