Benjamin Franklin once said:
It is easier to prevent bad habits than to break them.
This holds true for almost everything in life, including dental care. For parents in the Daly City area, teaching your children good oral hygiene techniques early in life will help them avoid the lifelong consequences.
If you wait too long to teach your child how to brush and floss, or if you don’t make sure they are doing it enough, you’re setting yourself up for a lot of work down the road.
It’s very hard to convince an older child that they should be spending two or three times longer brushing their teeth each morning and night. But, if they’ve done it for as long as they can remember, then their habits should be sufficient to avoid excessive dental decay or the need for children’s cosmetic dentistry in San Mateo County.
I’m Dr. Kenneth Hovden, a dentist serving the Daly City area. I know that helping children learn proper oral hygiene is a key indicator of future oral health, and I want to help parents teach these habits to their children.
