Benjamin Franklin said it’s easier to prevent bad habits than to break them. This is true for almost everything, including dental care. At Alaska Premier Dental Group, our general dentistry is all about encouraging good habits, and stopping any problems before they get out of hand.
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 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, their habits should be sufficient to avoid excessive decay.
We know that helping children learn proper oral hygiene is a vital indicator of future oral health, and want to help parents teach these habits to their children.
Alaska Premier Dental Group provides general and family dentistry to patients of all ages. We also provide cosmetic dentistry, including teeth whitening; gum disease treatment; and sedation dentistry for those coping with dental anxiety.
