Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Child’s Teeth

March 31, 2020 8:00 am

Spring is in the air which means you may be gearing up for your home’s annual spring cleaning. As you set about tidying the house, we invite you to consider extending your spring cleaning to your child’s dental health as well. After all, your family is already focused on getting things in order.

With a clean house and a clean mouth, your family will enjoy a fresh start into spring. So check out these spring cleaning tips for your child’s teeth!

Swap Out Their Toothbrush

Consider the last time you swapped out your child’s toothbrush. The general rule is to replace your toothbrush every three to four months and after you’ve been sick. This goes for electric toothbrush heads too. You should regularly replace toothbrushes because an older brush with frayed bristles can’t clean as safely and effectively as a new one. Germs can also accumulate in an old toothbrush and make your child sick.

Book Their Next Dental Appointment

Has it been six months since your child’s last dental checkup? If you didn’t already set up your child’s next dental appointment at their last checkup, now is as good a time as any to call up our Lytle pediatric dental office to schedule their visit.

Just like adults, kids should see a dentist twice a year for a routine checkup and cleaning. That means that even if your child isn’t experiencing any dental pain or concerns, they should still pop in to get their teeth professionally cleaned. They’ll also get an oral exam so any new issues are caught as soon as possible. Prevention and early intervention are easier on your child and your wallet!
