Know the ABCs of Amazing Oral Care!

Dental appointments for checkups, toothaches or dental emergencies can potentially see your Little Hero missing a big amount of school! The perfect way to avoid this situation is to implement heroic oral hygienic values in your Little Hero during summer vacation.

An effective and action-packed oral care routine will teach your Little Hero these values and give him/her a super confidence boost. The following are steps you can take to prepare for the upcoming school year:

  • Establish a brushing routine for your children to encourage them to brush at least twice a day.
  • Set up a timer to ensure that your Little Hero brushes for two minutes. Another helpful tip is to have them recite the alphabet twice, which takes approximately two minutes.
  • If your Little Hero’s toothbrush has been used for three months, it’s time for a new one! This will help keep the ravenous Sugarbugs
  • Encourage your Little Hero to start eating and snacking healthily. Once school begins, you can pack their lunches with tasty vegetables, delicious fruits and water to help avoid sugary drinks.
  • It’s important to get any dental appointments – cleanings, fillings, etc. – out of the way during the vacation period. Visit our super sidekicks at Little Heroes Pediatric Dentistry to get the most heroic help against the dreaded Sugarbugs.
