Keeping your child’s teeth and gums healthy during the early years of life can help ensure they have a healthy smile for the rest of their life. It is important, as a parent, to be proactive in your child’s oral health; you can save them from discomfort and heavy dental costs later on. One of the biggest contributions you can make to your child’s oral health is providing them with proper dental care from an early age.

When Should My Child Visit a Dentist in Edmonton?

You are concerned about ensuring you do the best for your child’s oral health However, it is very likely that you may have noticed there is conflicting information as to when it is best to bring your child in for a dental appointment. As long as your child does not have any obvious dental issues, you can wait until your child is four or five years old. This will ensure they can participate in their checkups and understand what is going on, creating a positive experience at the dentist’s office.

While you are waiting for your child’s next checkup, there are a few things you can do to help keep their teeth and gums healthy:
  1. Monitor your child’s brushing habits. Children under seven should never brush without adult supervision.
  2. Turn brushing and flossing into a routine and make sure your child does it twice a day.
  3. Try making oral hygiene fun by letting your child pick their own toothbrush, child’s toothpaste and even fun-shaped flossing brushes.
  4. Maintain your child’s nutrition to help keep their teeth and gums healthy. Always have your child brush or rinse after eating high acidity or high sugar foods.
