You know how important regular visits to the dental office and good brushing and flossing techniques are. Your commitment to oral health probably didn’t develop on its own. Odds are, you had someone in your life—a parent, a grandparent, or some other family member—who set a good example and taught you the importance of both.
So of course it’s going to be the same for your own little one. Help your child understand the importance of diligent care by making it a habit to brush together until your child is old enough to do it on their own.
If you have questions about how to do that, Dr. Goldstein would be happy to offer you tips or any extra information you might need. With his years of experience and his dedication to prevention, he can offer advice on how to brush and floss more effectively, advice that you can then pass on to your son or daughter.
Developing healthy habits isn’t solely about brushing and flossing, though. It’s just as important to emphasize regular checkups and cleanings. With a regular checkup and cleaning, a doctor like Dr. Goldstein can keep an eye out for common oral health conditions like tooth decay and gum disease—conditions that need to be monitored and treated as soon as possible. Plus, with a cleaning, there’s a chance for extra stubborn bacteria, plaque, and calculus to be removed, getting teeth cleaner than brushing and flossing alone could have.
