This is the month of Children in Need with the BBC televised appeal show scheduled for 16th November. This amazing charity gives year-round support to children suffering from poverty, disabilities and abuse. Children in Need is a poignant reminder of how precious children are. One of the ways children can live a healthy life is by maintaining a sound oral hygiene.
At only six months old, usually before any teeth have come through, getting a baby used to the idea of cleaning teeth as part of the bathing routine is an excellent way to get started. By brushing the baby’s gums with a soft toothbrush, possibly letting them try when supervised, oral hygiene should hopefully feel like second nature to the baby as they become a small child.
It is essential that the toothpaste contains fluoride and children’s toothpaste is available. Brushing should last for 2 minutes, twice a day and should be supervised until a child is seven or eight years old. Use a mirror so the child can see where they are brushing and help guide them with your hand to make sure they are brushing correctly. Try and make brushing teeth fun but obviously don’t let the child walk or run with a toothbrush in their mouth.
Ideally, children should start going to the dentist from the age of two. On the emotional side, the child will have a chance to get to know the dentist and their surroundings. On the health side, the dentist will help you focus on any areas that can be improved within the current dental hygiene and find any problems early, reducing or possibly eliminating the need treatment. For more information on children’s dentistry please contact the team at Sparkle Dental Boutique near Hounslow.
