Good dental hygiene is important to ensure that our children grow up with strong, healthy teeth that will last them a lifetime. Proper brushing and flossing habits start as children. Regular dental check-ups as a youngster reduces fear of visiting a dentist as they age. Minimizing sugar intake to reduce chances of tooth decay is just as important. Avoid lollipops, sugary cereals and especially gummy candy that sticks to teeth. Sweets should be eaten in moderation. Don’t take your child’s teeth for granted, schedule a dental appointment at Goldstein Dental Group in Novi, Michigan.
