Your children look up to you in every way, and the ways they approach the world stem from what you teach them. Because of this, your children's dental health lies in your hands. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to inspire excellent oral hygiene in children. They can't process the full extent of what oral hygiene during childhood will accomplish throughout their lives, so brushing and flossing just seem like a boring, pointless step in a day that could be spent elsewise. Today, our Schenectady dentist discusses the ways in which our practice helps make brushing, flossing fun for your kids. A stable foundation of dental knowledge during a child's development will enable him to better care for his teeth for the rest of his life.

Children's Oral Hygiene | Schenectady Dentist

If your kids learn to think of oral hygiene as a vital part of the day, their dental health attitudes will develop in a positive way. They may even enjoy trips to the dentist! We hope to help every young patient find dental health pleasant, and here we list a few ways we work to accomplish that:

  • Stress-free first appointments - Your child's first trip to our office will be one to put him or her at ease. You will accompany your child he or she tours the office and meets our staff. If your child is young or especially nervous, you may sit in the dental chair with them during their first teeth cleaning. Feeling good about the office will help your child feel great about future dental treatment, and avoid forming dental anxiety.
  • Engaging education on oral health - Learning about plaque, cavities, and the problems that follow candy pigouts and poor brushing will do more to engage your child in oral health than vague admonitions to brush and floss. There are a variety of fun games that can help visually demonstrate the effects of bacteria and acid on teeth.
  • Fun dental products - The wide variety of products available means there are brushes, pastes, and floss that are just right for your son or daughter. Colors, addition of cartoon characters, and other alterations to the boring old brush and floss make oral hygiene more exciting. 
  • Oral health rewards - A cavity-free mouth should be rewarded! Just make sure it's not in the form of a sugary treat!

If your kids are seeking a pleasant, comfortable dental experience, visit our office to get them acquainted with our staff and our space. We looking forward to meeting them!
