Oral Health Tips Every Parent Needs to Know

Children's Dental Health Month

Since February is National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM), the oral health and dental care habits of children throughout the U.S. are taking center stage. This initiative of the American Dental Association (ADA) provides resources designed to create better dental care and stronger relationships with family dentistry professionals. By offering these educational materials, informative classroom activity guides, and fun activity pages to children, parents, caregivers, and educators, the ADA aims to increase the awareness of oral health and improve children’s dental care.

Smart parents everywhere know that keeping children’s teeth and gums as healthy as they can be is one of the most important duties they have. Establishing sound oral health habits during the early years is the best way to ensure that proper dental care routines continue into adulthood. Thus, there has never been a better time for parents to review some fundamental advice for engendering a commitment to oral hygiene in their youngsters.

Follow these simple steps to keep your children’s teeth and gums healthy:

  • Make sure your child brushes twice a day with an ADA-approved toothpaste and flosses once a day to remove food particles.
  • Encourage nutritious eating habits to keep the teeth and gums healthy.
  • Limit snacking between meals.
  • Avoid excessive amounts of sugary and starchy foods.
  • Schedule routine appointments with your family dentistry practitioner.

Dentists who host Give Kids A Smile program events in their communities during National Children’s Dental Health Month will be contributing even more to the oral health of underserved youth.
