As a parent you will want to make the most of your time with your children and ensure that they grow up to be healthy. As part of this, you will need to steward them through the early days of starting to take care of their teeth. But you are not alone when it comes to this; you can and should get help from your local dentist in the City of London area.
An important part of childhood dental care and the parenting involved in this is making sure that your child takes on dental care as part of their daily routine. Very young children will have to have parents brushing their teeth for them but when they are old enough to competently handle a brush they will need to be monitored so that they are brushing their teeth twice a day just like adults. Giving them incentives is often effective and making a chart too.
Dental sealants can be effective for slightly older children. Dentists can fit a protective layer of plastic over the new molars of six and twelve year olds so that these vulnerable teeth are protected from the potential ravages of plaque and ensuing dental decay.
By taking your child from an early age to go and see your dentist you will not only be allowing an expert to examine their mouth but also helping them to see the visits as part of the normal fabric of a person’s routine.
