How often do you clean your teeth? Which products do you use? While visiting a dentist can do wonders for your oral health and smile, everyday cleaning dramatically impacts your family and their smiles. Adults may have an easier time caring for their teeth in between visits to a dentist, but what about children and their oral health? At Western Smiles Dental Care, we want our patients to have the best chance at protecting their teeth and gums for years to come!

Family and Children's Dentistry in Mirrabooka, WA

Scheduling regular checkups and cleanings for your family's teeth goes a long way, but setting up your children's teeth for success between appointments can do wonders for their oral development. Even though children lose their 'baby teeth' at a young age, keeping their teeth and gums free of decay is paramount. A few tips for taking care of your children's teeth include:

  • Thoroughly brush teeth twice a day
  • Use a low-fluoride toothpaste
  • Brush gums and tongue
  • Avoid excess sugary foods and drinks that may cause decay
  • Schedule regular appointments twice a year with your family dentist

Staying on top of your child's oral health can help monitor trends in their oral development and create proper cleaning habits that they'll carry with them into adulthood. Please don't hesitate to reach out to our dental clinic if you have more questions about keeping your family's teeth in fantastic shape!
