Still, understanding the causes of gum disease does little to help you overcome these issues. To protect your child’s teeth, we recommend limiting their sugar intake. Please remember to consider the types of drink they specifically enjoy and be careful of beverages that are high in sugar.
You can also help you children by setting a good example. Let them see you brush your own teeth frequently. This includes visiting your dentist often—and remembering to bring your child to our dentist when they are young. Similarly, teach your child proper brushing and flossing techniques. We also recommend teaching your child about why brushing their teeth is so important. With simple training, you can help your child establish good habits that can last well into adulthood.
If you are worried about the health of your child’s teeth, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Karisha Madden as soon as possible. Our team will be happy to help however we can. If you would like to schedule an appointment, just call Madden Dental at (713) 667-8080 to schedule an appointment with us. We are eager to receive your call.
