, it gives us the opportunity to develop a trusting relationship with our patients from the very beginning. When they are at their most influential, we can strongly implement preventative dental health habits that will keep a child free from dental and oral disease in the future.
Taking care of your child's oral health goes beyond regular visits to your Wallingford pediatric dentist, Dr. Saleem, it also involves proper at-home care. Your child should brush or have their teeth brushed two to three times a day. The two most important times to have your children brush their teeth is after breakfast and right before bedtime. Daily brushing of your child's teeth should begin as soon as your child's first tooth erupts. You can use a small amount of fluoride toothpaste to brush their teeth, just make sure they don't swallow it. Proper brushing will remove plaque from the inner, outer, and chewing surfaces of your child's teeth. Your Wallingford pediatric dentist
will take the time to show your child how to properly brush, so when they're old enough to take care of their teeth, they'll keep their mouth healthy and clean.
