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 Royal Oak area, teaching your children good oral hygiene techniques early in life will benefit their smile throughout their life.
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 Royal Oak.
I’m Dr. Steven Gustafson, a dentist serving the Detroit area. I know that helping children learn proper oral hygiene is a key indicator of future oral health, and I want to help Royal Oak parents teach these habits to their children.
If you are looking for quality dental care in the Berkley, Birmingham, or Ferndale area, give us a call here at Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry. We are currently accepting new patients, and we would love to help you learn how to teach kids good brushing habits or answer questions you have have about cosmetic dentistry or smile makeovers.
