As our name implies The Center For Cosmetic & Family Dentistry of The Woodlands welcomes all members of your family regardless of age. For your young ones, it's never too early to learn proper dental care. Should you have specific concerns about your children's care, please ask one of our staff or your dentist for more information.
Prevention begins with brushing and flossing
The key to preventing tooth decay and plaque build up is proper brushing technique. Practice with your children at home and help them stick with it. They will reap the rewards of good dental health later in life.
Brushing is a good way to prevent cavities, but flossing is just as important! Most cavities start between your teeth, where the bristles of your toothbrush simply can't reach. To keep your gums and teeth
healthy, you must use dental floss. Show your kids how to wrap a length of floss around two fingertips and gently work it back and forth and up and down between upper and lower teeth.
Infant dental care
As soon as your child gets his first teeth, you should begin cleaning them after feedings with a moist gauze pad or washcloth. When your child is comfortable with a toothbrush, brush his teeth twice a day with an extra-soft toothbrush.
