Tips On How To Care For Baby Teeth From Your Keller, TX Family Dentist
Caring for your children’s teeth is one of the most important things you can do as a parent, which is why your Keller TX family dentist, Dr. Darshan Patel, wants to be sure to provide you with some tips!
- Use a toothbrush with soft bristles. Children’s gums are much more vulnerable to damage, which is why a softer bristled brush is needed.
- Use a small amount of toothpaste, and monitor your child closely while brushing! Younger children are more prone to swallowing toothpaste, and should only use a tiny amount or a child friendly version.
- Make sure your child is brushing correctly! While it may be a victory to have your child brushing at all, set them up for success by teaching them the proper techniques early!
- Brush for 2 minutes!
- Encourage them with a sticker or a smile after they successfully brush their teeth.
