Summertime Dental Tips for Your Little Ones

Who doesn’t fall in love with summer? The sun and fresh air all spell fun and entertainment. But, don’t get too focused on all the fun that you forget to take your kids to their pediatric dentist in Winter Springs.  

Regardless of the season, if your child is due for a checkup and cleaning, you should make that a priority. Otherwise, you’re risking their oral health.  

With no class and endless free time, kids can also forget their oral care routine. As parents, it’s your responsibility to remind and guide them to keep their teeth and gums in great shape for as long as possible.

How to Keep Your Oral Health in Shape During the Summer

Establish a Brushing and Flossing Schedule

When you successfully establish a routine it becomes automatic to your kids. If you haven’t set up a routine, now is the best time to do it.  

Discipline and encourage your children to brush their teeth thirty minutes after every meal for approximately two minutes.  

Don’t forget to teach them the proper way to floss too! You can do it at night before they go to sleep to ensure that food particles and plaque are removed in between their teeth.  

Offer Healthy Snacks

The scorching heat is the perfect excuse to guiltlessly indulge in ice cream or soda. It’s okay to enjoy sugary treats every once in a while but what’s not okay is if you allow your children to consume them whenever they want.  

We suggest you create healthier alternatives to beat the heat, quench their thirst while at the same time protect their teeth against cavities.  

There are plenty of teeth-friendly foods and snacks that your children will surely love! You can ask your pediatric dentist for ideas.
