Benjamin Franklin once said:
It is easier to prevent bad habits than to break them.
This holds true for almost everything in life, including dental care. For parents in the Comstock Park area, teaching your children good dental hygiene techniques early in life will help them avoid the lifelong consequences of poor oral health.
It is important to teach your children how to brush and floss at an early age, making sure they are thorough and brushing long enough. Developing these skills at an early age will prevent many future problems.
It’s very hard to convince older children that they should be spending two or three times longer brushing their teeth each morning and night than they do. But, proper brushing involves brushing for a minimum of two minutes. If children have brushed correctly for as long as they can remember, then their habits should be sufficient to avoid excessive dental decay or the need for children’s cosmetic dentistry in Comstock Park.
