If you want your child to grow into the strong, healthy, and beautiful smile they deserve, our Smiley Dental Arlington team has some tips for you! Your child’s oral health is important to our team, and we want your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw to remain in tip-top shape so they can have the best dental experience possible. To help you help your child, we recommend doing the following things:

Monitor your child’s eating habits
Having a healthy diet is very beneficial for your child’s oral health. If your child eats healthy foods, like carrots and apples, and stays away from the sugary and starchy products, the chances of having dental cavities decrease. So, we ask that you monitor your child’s eating habits as much as possible. If it’s tough to monitor their school lunch, please feel free to pack a home lunch for your child or talk to the school board about providing healthier food options.

Encourage oral hygiene
Oral hygiene will keep your child’s teeth clean and pristine each and every day. This will help prevent tooth decay as well as gum disease. So, please encourage your child to brush every morning and every night and floss and rinse at least once a day.

Consider dental sealants
If you want to physically cover your child’s teeth and shield them from dental issues, dental sealants are the best option for you. Dental sealants are wafer-thin shells that cover the surfaces of the teeth and block the food particles, plaque, and other harmful substances from threatening the smile.
