Your children’s teeth are very important to their overall development—but do you know what you can do to help you keep your little ones’ teeth healthy? Your children’s foundation for healthy permanent teeth starts within the first few years of their life. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to help your kids enjoy healthy smiles for a lifetime.

You see, primary teeth—or your children’s first set of teeth—play an important role in the proper alignment of their permanent teeth. It is incredibly important to care for them well. Similarly, if you help your children keep their primary teeth healthy, their permanent teeth should follow suit. You see, most individuals who are taught to care from their teeth well tend to maintain those practices as they age.

Sadly, many dentists have noticed signs of increased sugar consumption in children. You should consider limiting the amount of sugar your little ones have in their diet. We also recommend visiting our dentist once every six months. This appointment affords our team the opportunity to inspect the state of your children’s teeth.

If you’re interested in learning more about how you can care for your children’s teeth, we invite you to contact Hill Country Pediatric Dentistry at 512.263.7455. Dr. Nieku Manshadi and our team will be happy to offer you any advice you need. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
