Your Teeth Now
Have you been brushing your teeth regularly? You still have more grown-up teeth coming in and it’s important that your gums stay healthy during this time. Make sure you brush your teeth in the morning and at night and try to stay away from cookies, candy, sports drinks, and sodas. Continue to come in to see Dr. Royal or Dr. Reid for your dental cleanings and check-ups every 6 months. Make sure to let them know about any pain, discomfort or problems you are having with your teeth.
Oral Health At This Age
At this age, your child’s permanent teeth have almost completely replaced their baby teeth. Continue to talk to Dr. Royal or Dr. Reid about having dental sealants [link to blog] placed on the chewing surfaces of their back teeth to protect them from decay, therefore preventing cavities. Also, as your child’s teeth finish growing in, be aware of any crowding or crooked teeth.
Along with your child regularly brushing their teeth, bringing your child in every 6 months for routine dental cleanings and checkups can protect the health of your child’s teeth and gums.
