Let’s talk about sugar
Sugar is the primary cause of tooth decay in children. Often fruit juices aimed at children have more sugar than a can of Coke. We know that sugar is enemy number one in terms of teeth, but children love a sugary snack or drink. A glass of milk or fresh water is always better for their teeth than a fizzy drink or high-sugar fruit juice, but you can also help reduce the effect of a sugary drink by encouraging your child to use a straw.
Confident children mean confident adults
How often do you hear of people who are scared to visit the dentist? Often, it’s the unknown and lack of familiarity that nurtures fears and anxieties. You can help your child become dentist-confident. Regular visits to the dentist for check ups will help them to understand the processes and what to expect, as well as build a relationship with their own local Station House Dental & Implant Clinic dentist that will last into adult life.
Prevention is always better than a cure, and regular check ups at Station House Dental & Implant Clinic for your child are invaluable for halting tooth decay and gum disease, maintaining a bright smile into adulthood.
