Your child’s oral care is vital to their long-term health, and we know you want to do everything you can to protect their smile. That’s why we at Dental Works have come up with this handy guide of the most important things you can do to ensure your child has healthy teeth and gums for years to come.

Having your child see a dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings is one of the most important things you can do to ensure their long-term oral health. You should start to bring your child in for visitations with a dentist shortly after their first birthday or six months after the appearance of his first tooth. You can expect a friendly and comfortable visit in which your child will be introduced to Dr. Jennifer Morgan and the friendly staff of Dental Works. We will also be glad to answer any questions you may have during this time.

It’s also important your child be taught at a young age the basics of oral healthcare. If your child learns how to brush, floss, and rinse early in life, they will be more likely to practice these things as they grow older. You can try to engage your child more during these times by making brushing and flossing into a game! Make the whole family get involved so your child will be more likely to learn more.

If these things aren’t being currently practiced, you should start doing them now. For any questions you may have about pediatric dentistry in Athens, Texas, please call 903-675-0023 to speak with a staff member at Dental Works who will be happy to answer any of your questions.
