Healthy Smiles

I was asked to share five simple things you can do for your child to help keep their smiles healthy and bright.

As a child the last thing on your mind is your teeth so as adults we have to help encourage a healthy and bright teeth lifestyle such as reminding to brush morning and night. To make sure my son brushes his teeth in the morning I have the toothbrush waiting for him so there is no excuse to not brush his teeth.

Eating habits: my son has already felt the pain of having caps due to cavities so we limit his sugar intake.

Floss: We make it fun we buy the bright colored floss so he can enjoy it.

We make frequent dental visits so we can make sure to prevent anymore cavities.

Chewing Trident sugar free gum for 20 minutes after a meal can help fight cavities. My son loves gum and well I love that Trident helps him fight against cavities.
