Your Child and Their Healthy Smile!

 

 

How do we help children build a healthy smile?  Children take their smiles for granted and for many, teeth brushing is a chore that parents and guardians force on them. Still, we know, as guardians of their health, that good dental hygiene in childhood means that they can have healthy teeth and gums when they become adults. Neglecting dental health impacts more than just your child’s teeth and smile, it effects their entire well-being as well as your family.

 

 

There are some things we can do to help interest our children in taking care of their smile/dental health:

  1. Family Time. Make brushing and flossing a positive experience (Brush and Floss together)

7 Is the Magic Number for Giving Your Child the Best Orthodontic Start in South Florida!

A mom in Davie is visiting her family dentist for her seven-year old daughter’s check-up. Though her daughter is young, it’s becoming clear that she is developing quite an overbite.

Beautiful Smiles in Biscayne Park: The Result of Early Orthodontic Treatment

As a parent, you notice how your child plays and what and why they put things into their mouth.  Some children take to a pacifier to occupy or to soothe themselves, while other children may suck on their thumbs or another part of their hand for comfort.

By two years old, many children have begun talking.
