If you want your family to have strong and healthy smiles, then you have come to the right blog. Here, you can find the information you need to help your family reach that smile goal. Our dentist, Dr. David Manzanares, is happy to discuss the tips you need to help every smile in your household. Those tips are:

-If you have a baby, start them on an oral hygiene regimen as soon as their first little chomper grows into place. This means you should use a child-sized soft-bristled toothbrush to clean their teeth twice a day.

-Encourage your family members to protect their molars with dental sealants. These shells can keep tooth decay and enamel erosion at bay. Their dentist can determine if this is necessary.

-Make sure everyone gets enough fluoride. You can do so by asking everyone to use fluoride toothpaste, drink fluoridated water, and receive a professional fluoride treatment during their six-month checkups.

-Remind everyone to keep up on oral hygiene. Make sure they know to brush twice a day, floss and rinse daily, and visit their dentist every six months.

-Replace everyone’s toothbrushes after they have used them for 3-4 months or when their brush’s bristles have frayed.
