Dentist tips for children? Ditch the Pacifier by Age 2 or 3: There are lots of good reasons to let your child use a pacifier, but in the long term it can affect how his teeth line up. It can also change the shape of the mouth. Talk to your doctor if he’s still using a pacifier past age 3.
Remind your child to brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste for a full two minutes which not only fights cavities and strengthens teeth, but also gives older kids the confidence of having fresh breath. A power toothbrush might make brushing more fun for preteens. Flossing is extremely important at this point as most permanent teeth have erupted and cleaning between them will help prevent cavities and keep their mouth fresh. Encourage children who play sports to wear a mouth guard to protect their teeth from injuries. Make sure kids who wear braces use a power brush and floss very thoroughly to avoid white spots on teeth when braces come off.

Summer dental tip : Keep Bedtime Routines Consistent while Traveling: During the fun and excitement of a summer trip, it can be easy for a child to forget to brush their teeth. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, make sure you remind your child when it’s time to brush their teeth once you get back to the hotel room. Sometimes it can be hard for children to stick to routines when in a new place. This is why we recommend laying your child’s toothbrush and toothpaste out on the bathroom counter as a reminder for them to brush their teeth. Make sure to keep other parts of your nighttime routine consistent to help them remember when it’s time to brush their teeth.
