If you’ve ever raised children, you know that you should teach them good habits while they’re young. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that you should help your kids learn to brush and floss early. Of course, it’s also important for you to remember that your children’s baby teeth should be cared for while they’re young. Sadly, if their teeth aren’t cared for as well as they could be, their permanent teeth could suffer as well.
You see, primary teeth—or your children’s first set of teeth—play an important role in the proper alignment of their permanent teeth. It is incredibly important to care for them well. Similarly, if you help your children keep their primary teeth healthy, their permanent teeth should follow suit. You see, most individuals who are taught to care from their teeth well tend to maintain those practices as they age.
Sadly, many dentists have noticed signs of increased sugar consumption in children. You should consider limiting the amount of sugar your little ones have in their diet. We also recommend visiting our dentist once every six months. This appointment affords our team the opportunity to inspect the state of your children’s teeth.
If you’re interested in learning more about how you can care for your children’s teeth, we invite you to contact St. George Kids Dental at 435-673-3490. Dr. Trent Pryor and our team will be happy to offer you any advice you need. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
