Forming healthy dental habits in childhood is the most effective way to prevent dental problems later in life. At Gentle Smiles of Colorado, we provide patients of all ages in Denver, CO with exceptional cosmetic, general, and early dental care. We know that having clean, gleaming teeth at any age makes life better and Dr. Tim Wachuta and his team want to help parents give their kids the gift of oral health with these simple tips.

Brush and Floss Together

Establishing the habit of brushing and flossing every day is easier if you do it together! Children like to emulate their parents, so what they see you do, they’ll want to do, especially if you make it even more fun by using a cool 2-minute timer, or playing a favorite song each time you brush. Make sure your child learns to brush at least twice a day, and to floss at least once.

Choose Better Snacks

Preventing cavities goes beyond cutting down on sweets. When it comes to healthy snacks, there are a few of them that can be just as bad for your teeth if you aren’t careful. For instance, make sure your children floss and brush after eating dried fruit, which can get wedged between teeth and cause bacteria to grow. Pasta and bread also break down into sugar and warrant an after-meal brushing. Eating lots of leafy green and colorful veggies not only gives children the vitamins and minerals they need for strong teeth, but it also strengthens the jaw and helps it grow properly when they chomp down on harder vegetables like carrots and celery.

Find a Family Dentist You Trust

A vital part of anyone’s oral health routine, at any age, is a good relationship with the dentist who gives you your bi-annual cleanings and helps make sure your teeth and gums are in tip-top shape. Sometimes going to the dentist can feel scary for kids, especially the first time, and that’s why it’s so important to find a provider who specializes in early dental care. At Gentle Smiles of Colorado, you’ll find a friendly, warm, and positive environment that puts you and your child at ease, and prioritizes your health and comfort. If you’re ready to join the Gentle Smiles family, or it’s time for a cleaning, contact us and request an appointment today!
