Tips For Kids’ Dental Care

While it is true that the genetic component plays a key role in determining how good your kids’ gums and teeth will be, as parents you can create an excellent impact on the dental health of your kids from an early age. Here are a few tips for the dental care of your kids.

Fluoride based toothpaste should be used from the very beginning

Many dentists in Holly Springs recommend that parents should use fluoride based toothpaste from the time their babies have their first tooth. This is to prevent decaying of tooth that is a prevalent problem all over the world. When a tooth starts decaying, it affects the ability of a child to speak properly, sleep, eat, pay attention in the school or learn. Using fluoride toothpaste is helpful for blocking cavities and protecting your kids’ teeth that have been attacked by harmful bacteria acids.

Frequent visits to a dentist is a must for your kids

While adults usually go for a dental cleaning session and dental check-up twice a year, the same should be applied to your kids too. Many dentists Holly Springs recommend that you should take your toddler for a visit to the dentist as early as when he or she is one year old.

Teach your kids proper technique for brushing their teeth

When your kid brushes his teeth too aggressively, it may damage his gums and teeth. The bristles of the tooth brush should be tilted little forward so that it touches the surface of all his teeth.

To Our Most Valued Patients:

We will be closed and available for emergency only care until further notice. We must implement new restrictions on patient care. This is based on the latest advice we have received from the Centers for Disease Control, the NM Dental Board and the American Dental Association.

If you have an appointment for non-emergency dental treatment (such as a checkup or cleaning or fillings), the appointment has been canceled, and we will work with you to reschedule. We are now restricting treatment to urgent or emergency care only. If you are having a true dental emergency call us at 575-523-8663 or 575-520-5036

This decision was not easy, but necessary. The health and well-being of our patients and team members are our primary focus.

We regret that we must restrict our patient care this way. We are serving our patients in the safest manner possible by following the advice of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under these difficult circumstances. In doing this, we will safeguard the health and safety of our patients, our team members, and the entire community. Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding during these trying times and we wish you all the best of health.

In Good Health,
Dr. Robert Mabry and Team
