Creativity Can Make Brushing with Kids More Fun
Kids can get really stubborn when it comes to maintaining good oral hygiene, but it's necessary for them to brush regularly to have good oral health. In case you are wondering how you can get your kids to brush without the fuss, let's take a look at some of the tricks you could use:

Do It Together
Kids love imitating their parents or elder siblings. Encourage your kids to brush with you or with their siblings so that they have fun doing it.

Let Them Choose
When you take your kids to the supermarket, give them the freedom to pick the toothpaste and toothbrush they want to use. It could be anything from their favorite cartoon character to their favorite color, but it makes them feel empowered and they will feel a sense of pride when using it.

Make Brushing A Game
Kids often get distracted so constantly reminding them to brush won’t work. However, if you introduce a bit of fun and games, they will look forward to brushing their teeth every day.

Set Up Rewards
Motivate your kids to brush and give them something rewarding in return. Set up a daily or weekly task and give them a reward when they achieve it.

Get Them An Electric Toothbrush
Sometimes kids find it boring to use a manual toothbrush every day. You could invest in an electric toothbrush that could help them maintain clean teeth and enjoy the process of brushing.

In case you are worried about the health of your kid's teeth, you can visit us today and interact with our pediatric dentist to learn more about how to improve the dental well-being of your child.

Is Calcium Important for Your Child's Smile?
Teeth are mainly made of calcium so there is no denying that your child needs a lot of it to have strong teeth. Calcium helps to form healthy teeth and jaws in children and this builds the foundation for a strong support system for their adulthood. The calcium they consume today will pay off for the rest of their life so make sure they get enough of it.

Calcium also helps in protecting the tooth enamel and this is necessary for the teeth to stay strong and healthy. Loss of tooth enamel can result in sensitivity and various dental issues. Visit us today to check whether or not you are giving your child sufficient calcium for stronger teeth.

Bottled Water May Result in More Cavities
In case you are wondering whether or not your tooth could decay from drinking bottled water, then let's clear one thing up. Water cannot cause your tooth to decay, however lack of fluoride may. Bottled water does not contain fluoride, which is why a number of children drinking bottled water end up having tooth decay. While fluoride is a common ingredient found in adult toothpaste, it's usually skipped when making children's toothpaste.

There are a number of foods that have fluoride content in them so you could always include fluoride rich content in your diet and prevent cavities. In case you suspect anyone in your family having cavities, contact our office and our team will check them.

Our treatment philosophy centers around each child's individual needs and concerns to create a gentle and caring approach that works for that child. We firmly believe that a positive, enjoyable dental experience will help children build confidence and knowledge that will create a lifetime of great dental health.
