National Children’s Dental Health Month

Happy National Children’s Dental Health Month!

NCDHM began as a 1-day event in 1941, which then became a week-long celebration in 1955 and has now become a full holiday. Most states and dental clinics participate in NCDHM with activities and free screenings for kids.

Each year the American Dental Association promotes a different campaign targeting a new dental health goal. This year’s campaign gives us the perfect opportunity to highlight the importance of maintaining a health smile.

Part of a child’s development and overall health includes the health of their teeth and gums. The mouth harbors a lot of bacteria throughout the day and night, which eventually leads to tooth decay if your child’s smile isn’t regularly brushed and flossed. Without proper dental care, children will fall victim to cavities and gum disease, which can cause pain, discomfort, lack of nutrition intake and missed school.

However, there are several things you can do to help set your children up for good oral and overall health for life!

Brush for 2 Minutes, 2 Times a Day

Brushing for 2 minutes twice a day is recommended—especially after breakfast and before bedtime. Try making up or finding a 2-minute song about brushing to make it more fun.

Drink Fluoridated Water

Skip the fruit juice. Fruit juices and sodas are packed with sugar. When paired with proper brushing and flossing, fluoridated water is your child’s best bet for a cavity-free smile!

Use Fluoridated Toothpaste

Toothpaste with fluoride is proven to be more effective for cavity protection. Many brands have fluoridated toothpaste for kids with fun flavors!

Eat A Balanced Diet

We all love the occasional sweet treat! With that said, you want to make sure your child’s diet mostly contains a healthy mix of fruits, veggies and proteins. When they do indulge in sweets, be sure they have a glass of fluoridated water to rinse with until it’s time to brush!

Floss Before Bed

Flossing is essential to your child’s dental health. You can begin flossing your child’s teeth when they touch together. Your dentist can show you how to floss your child’s teeth until they have the manual dexterity to do so themselves.

Visit the Dentist

Visit a dental professional every 6 months to maintain healthy teeth and a bright smile!

Education is one of our most important practice values, and we love getting parents and kids excited about dental care! Contact us to set up an appointment at 1 of our 7 friendly Neighborhood Dental locations today!
