Dental 4 Less – Oral Healthcare Tips
Tips about oral health care products for your children:
Many parents encourage their children to practice proper dental care habits at home. But having the right dental health care products for your children is also essential. For children who do not brush their teeth on their own yet, try avoiding toothpaste with fluoride until they know not to swallow. However, for older children, the Center for Disease Control recommends that parents get their children toothpaste containing fluoride to protect their teeth.
Also, concerning using mouthwash, parents may want to avoid using mouthwash that contains alcohol. Many kid-friendly types of mouthwash do not contain alcohol just read the label to ensure. Flossing is an essential part of dental care. However, your child needs to know how to floss correctly. Make sure you or your dentist correctly shows your child how to floss. Parents should floss their child’s teeth until they can do so independently.
