Promote Healthy Dental Care At Home

They always say that the best way to promote good habits in your family is to lead by example. When it comes to dental health and wellness, you need to do your due diligence to make sure that your children build a strong foundation and dental routine. Start with the basics of brushing your teeth twice a day from a very early age to really set up a proper foundation. This may sound like a no-brainer, but by making sure that your children start on the right foot, they will be much more capable of adding in any additional dental needs that may arise over time. Children that have this strong foundation of good dental health will generally have better success with treatments like Invisalign and retainers as they are already used to taking care of their teeth.  

The Importance Of Flossing

You have probably heard it from your dentist your whole life, but flossing is an extremely important step for any dental health and wellness plan. Flossing not only ensures that your teeth remain clean and free of plaque, but it can also help protect your whole body. Flossing can help reduce the risk of strokes, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, respiratory disease, and even heart disease. Simply floss between each of your teeth once per day, and you can easily help your teeth stay clean and bacteria-free for years. If your children have a hard time with flossing, you can get special floss picks to help them reach those difficult-to-reach back teeth.
