National Children’s Dental Health Month

National Children’s Dental Health Month

In honour of February being National Children’s Dental Health Month, our entire team at the Centre Dentaire Lasalle want to remind you that it is so important to take care of your children’s oral health.  A beautiful, healthy smile is not only attractive, it is an important part of maintaining a healthy body.

Four Steps to a Healthy Mouth

Step 1: Proper Home Care – Remember to help your children brush their teeth twice a day and don’t forget to floss.

Step 2: Eat a Balanced Diet  Healthy food is important for everyone’s teeth, especially kids. Regularly eating fruits and veggies make your children’s teeth less susceptible to cavities and tooth decay.

Step 3: Visit the Dentist Regularly – Don’t wait until something hurts. Regular dental appointments help you and your family maintain a healthy mouth, letting you live a healthier life.

Step 4: Apply Dental Sealants –  Children commonly get cavities on the chewing surface of their teeth. Dental sealants help protect your child’s teeth. By applying a thin plastic film to the chewing surface of the tooth, food and bacteria cannot reach the narrow grooves in the tooth and form into cavities.

If you have any questions or concerns about you or you child’s oral health, please do not hesitate to contact us.
