If you’re a parent, you know kids ask a lot of questions. To instill good oral hygiene habits in them at an early age, it’s important to answer the questions they have about things like brushing and flossing. At Aberdeen Smiles, we’re happy to start introducing your child to dentistry when they are as young as 6 months old. We’ll answer their questions – and yours too. Still, outside resources like this video come in handy. It covers the reasons for brushing teeth

The video offers a great kid-friendly explanation of the structure of teeth, how cavities occur, and why it’s important to brush teeth both before bedtime and in the morning too. We’re happy to share brushing and flossing tips with your child when they visit us for exams and cleanings. We can also provide treatments such as fluoride and dental sealants that offer additional protection against cavities.
