Easy Dental Health Tips for Busy Mums
As a mum, you want the best for your family, and that includes great dental care. The good news is that excellent oral health needn’t take very long and can be fitted into even the busiest of schedules.
Begin with Brushing
Regular tooth brushing is the most important thing you can do to ensure your entire family enjoys good oral health. Unfortunately, kids will often brush inadequately or too quickly. Make sure your child brushes for the full two minutes at least twice a day. It might be helpful to brush your teeth with them, so they learn the proper techniques.
A healthy diet is essential for oral and general health. Many foods that are marketed as being good for you contain high levels of hidden sugars. Next time you are shopping for groceries, check the labels and learn which foods you should be eating every day, and which are best kept for an occasional treat.
Regular Dental Checkups
We much prefer a preventative approach to dentistry so please don’t wait until one of your family has an emergency like a toothache. Visiting us regularly for checkups and cleanings will help prevent larger problems from developing. There’s also that feeling of satisfaction when everyone receives a clean bill of health!
