The snacks and lunches that you pack for child can make a big difference in their dental health. Try to avoid the sugary snacks and sodas, and load them up on crunchy fruits and veggies, like carrots, apples, cucumbers, and celery. These help to clean their teeth through the day!
While you’re back-to-school shopping, make a stop in the dental care aisle and have your child pick out a brand new toothbrush and/or floss. Starting the school year with new tools helps to keep track of how long they’ve been using them, plus it can be exciting for them to have a new, fun toothbrush.
If your child already responds to a dental health routine, it’s important to continue one that fits their school routine – brushing and flossing every morning, and brushing at night before bed. Routine will help kids continue cleaning their teeth each day by habit.
Start the school year off on the right foot, knowing that you child’s mouth is free of cavities and other dental caries. Contact Markham dental professionals at Southeast Dental to book your appointment, online or by phone at 905-471-2002 .
With these dental tips, your child will be ready for the new school year!
