Smile for National Children’s Dental Health Month

Smile for National Children’s Dental Health Month

During the month of February, the American Dental Association creates a campaign for National Children’s Dental Health Month. This year’s campaign gives us the perfect opportunity to highlight the importance of maintaining a healthy smile. Education is one of our most important practice values, and we love getting parents and kids excited about dental care!

Part of a child’s development and overall health includes the health of their teeth and gums. The mouth harbors a lot of bacteria throughout the day and night, which eventually leads to tooth decay if your child’s smile isn’t regularly brushed and flossed. Without proper dental care, children will fall victim to cavities and gum disease, which can cause pain, discomfort, lack of nutrition intake, and missed school.

Brushing with fluoridated toothpaste twice a day for two minutes is key to healthy teeth and gums. Find a two minute song that your kids like and have them brush for the duration of the song (maybe incorporate some dancing to make it even more fun)! Following up with floss is essential to a complete dental health routine.
