Child Brushing Teeth

From the moment children are born, parents strive to ensure that they grow up happy and healthy. Teaching reading and writing or how to wash and dress are all ways you can set your offspring up for future success. In addition, good oral hygiene is a vital habit to instill in your child. The earlier your child becomes accustomed to caring for their teeth, the more likely they will keep doing this into adulthood.

Tooth brushing does not come naturally for children. The act of putting a toothbrush in the mouth feels foreign and uncomfortable. In addition, tooth brushing could seem an unwelcome distraction from play to a child.

Young children cannot be expected to understand how brushing stops the build-up of plaque and tartar, preventing cavities and gingivitis down the line. Engineered Smiles has the following suggestions to make dental care a positive experience for you and your child.

Make Brushing Fun

Tooth brushing seems a tedious activity next to the allure of toys or cartoon shows. Even five minutes of brushing time can feel like an eternity to a child compared to activities they enjoy. Bring playtime into oral hygiene by letting your child choose their own toothbrush featuring a favorite superhero or color.

Some toothbrushes play a tune to let your child time their brushing or look online for a song to sing together. Children’s’ taste buds are very sensitive, so adult toothpaste may have an overwhelming flavor. Choose a fluoride-rich children’s toothpaste with a neutral or fruit flavor to make the experience more pleasant.

Lead By Example

Every child wants to feel “grown-up” and emulate mommy and daddy. If you are inclined to skip tooth brushing due to being tired or in a rush, your child will assume it is not an important task. Set aside time in the morning and evening to brush and floss with your child. Show that you care about your oral health by choosing sugar-free snacks and drinks and offer the same to your children. If you are enthusiastic about dental care, they will be too!

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Jean R.

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    Sanjay P.

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
