Your son or daughter is reaching that age where they start to worry about how others view them. Kids are bombarded with images that prompt them to set near-impossible standards for themselves in terms of appearance.
As for you? You just want to see your child happy and healthy. Your pre-teen deserves a great foundation to start from, one of health that gives them more freedom to express themselves.
Great oral hygiene is a cornerstone of health. If your child gets into good habits in this area now, you’ll have some peace of mind.
Use your child’s natural desire to fit in and be beautiful to encourage those healthy tooth habits.
Here are some signs that your kid may actually be headed down wrong path when it comes to dental health and hygiene:
What you can do:
Encourage good hygiene for your family by having the appropriate dental products easily accessible around the home. Promote healthy snacking by stocking the right foods. Educate your son or daughter on how choices in daily life can affect the look of their smile.
Your family’s dentist is on your side and can help your child get an idea of the condition their mouth is in. Schedule an appointment to get more information.
