From taking their first steps to learning how to drive, your child depends on you as their parent to teach them almost everything they know.oral hygiene This means that instilling good habits in your child is a vital part of their upbringing.

What does a good oral hygiene routine consist of?
Good daily oral hygiene is an important weapon in your arsenal against teeth decay and gum disease at any age. A strong dental care routine should consist of brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day, according to the American Dental Association. Brush for at least two minutes and floss between every tooth and under the gum tissues, including the back side of your last molar. Though it is not necessary, if you choose to use mouthwash, do not rinse with water after you swish with the solution. This gives the mouthwash time to work and fight any leftover bacteria in the mouth.

When should my child see the dentist for the first time?
Your child’s early dental experiences help fight against dental anxiety later on in life, making regular examinations and cleanings from a young age crucial to good oral health. Seeing the dentist for the first time within six months of getting their first tooth or by their first birthday can help children build a solid relationship with their dentist and help them feel comfortable in the dentist’s chair. Early visits also give their dentist a chance to ensure that the child’s dental growth and development is on track.
