February is National Children’s Dental Health Month

Did you know that February is National Children’s Dental Health Month? At Fairfield Dental Arts, we believe that all children should learn good dental health habits at an early age. Below are some tips that will keep your pearly whites healthy.

Brush Your Teeth Twice A Day For Two Minutes
Two minutes is not a long time. It takes just two minutes to to clean your teeth with a toothbrush and a dab of toothpaste. The trouble is, some children are not brushing their teeth correctly. We recommend doing gentle strokes on the teeth and gums.

Floss Once A Day
A lot of children think that brushing their teeth twice a day is enough. Flossing is another habit that improves your overall dental hygiene. This is due to the fact that floss cleans in between teeth and in hard-to-reach places.

You Are What You Eat (And Drink)
You know what they say–you are what you eat! Avoid sugary candies and soft drinks, as they can wear away at tooth enamel. Opting for healthier alternatives will pay off in the long run.
