School is back in session and that means time to keep up with your child’s dental health. It is vital to not let the importance of dental hygiene slide, especially during the busy school year. Dr. Johnson, your pediatric dentist in Waldorf, MD, has composed a list of some tips that can help younger patients preserve their dental health as the school year really begins to pick up.

Helpful Tips From Your Waldorf Pediatric Dentist

  • Regular Dental Examinations: Examinations are essential in helping treat or prevent dental problems. This is especially crucial for younger teeth since they are constantly growing, falling out or moving, so be sure to call us to schedule regular visits to your Waldorf area dentist.

  • Healthy Lunches: Send your kids to school with healthy lunch items and snacks to help maintain excellent dental health. Healthy and easy lunches and snacks include: vegetables, cheese, yogurt, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, milk, salads, and soups.

  • Frequent Brushing & Flossing: Brushing regularly with fluoride toothpaste and flossing are a huge proponent of continuing good dental health. Be sure your child doesn’t skip brushing and flossing before bed. Also, be sure to replace toothbrushes every few months to brush with clean and effective bristles.

  • Get Involved: Make it easier and more enjoyable for your child to keep up with their dental habits by utilizing fun games or homework, like reading aloud or spelling challenges while they brush their teeth.
