At 1st in Smiles, we’re happy to welcome your children to our dental family beginning with regular visits at age 3. Before that, we can advise you on caring for their teeth at home. One of the most important aspects of your child’s dental care is brushing their teeth.
Watch this video from the American Dental Association for tips on teaching your kids to brush their own teeth. Some of our favorite suggestions:
- Let them pick their own toothbrush and toothpaste
- Set a timer to help them brush for two full minutes
- Create a reward chart to encourage proper oral hygiene
When they begin visiting our Plano, TX office, we may recommend adding preventive treatments like dental sealants to your child’s dental care to make it easier for them to keep their teeth clean and cavity-free.
To make an appointment for your child, call 972-905-9266 today.
