Kids are the future and their ability to make a substantial impact in life is dependent on the choices they make. Healthy development starts at home.

In order to facilitate the best dental health possible (which will also promote better overall health) there are some important things to consider. Here are some tips which parents and children alike need to have in mind when taking care of their teeth and gums.

Start Early – Ensure that you begin taking care of your child’s dental health before teeth even start sprouting in their mouths. Register them with a paediatric dentist and make sure to keep their mouths and gums as clean as possible.

Healthy Bedtime Routine Avoid giving your children any milk or other sugary beverages before they go to bed. If they do get thirsty water is the best option. Also make sure that their teeth are brushed (if they’re old enough to have some) and that their gums are cleaned.

Positive Support – As a parent it’s important to be in your child’s corner and offer them the necessary support to keep them on the path toward the best dental health. Make sure your children are brushing for at least 2 minutes when they brush and that they are doing it properly and reaching all of their teeth.

When you help get your children set on the right path for the best dental health early on, it’s is that much easier for them to maintain those habits throughout their lives.

Baby’s First Dental Visit


Children are definitely amazing little miracles. Being able to watch them grow and evolve is truly remarkable. From first steps to first teeth every moment is precious, but it’s the actions that are taken after the moments occur that will determine the direction they will head in.

The emergence of teeth is significant for a few reasons; they will be able to start consuming solid foods and also they will need to start regularly seeing a dentist to set their mouths on the right track. “When a child learns to trust their dentist at a young age, it can help prevent anxiety in the dental chair later on life resulting in missed visits and unchecked oral health problems. A personalized dental health care program for your child is essential to identify any unique dental anomalies such as missing adult teeth or problems with hereditary components. Frequency in cleanings and fluoride treatments may also be part of a child’s preventative program.”
