Oral health is closely tied to the health of the entire body. This is true for children just as much as it is true for adults. Making sure that your children have the best oral health will ensure that they have great smiles that last for life.

Oral health must be made a priority at home. From the very first tooth that erupts inside your child’s mouth, proper oral hygiene must be made a priority. It is a huge mistake to think that baby teeth do not affect the health of permanent teeth. Even though baby teeth will fall out within a few years, these teeth hold a place for your child’s permanent teeth. It is essential that your child has a healthy mouth when the permanent teeth arrive!

As a parent, it is your job to teach your children to take care of their teeth. Children do not naturally know how to brush well or how to floss, and they will certainly skip out on both of these if given the opportunity to do so. The best way to encourage your child to have proper oral hygiene is to model it for them. Allowing your children to floss and brush their teeth in your bathroom will let them watch you and learn how to care for their teeth. It will take time to teach how to correctly hold a toothbrush, how long to brush, and how to floss – but it is worth it. Parents who take an active role in their own oral health and who allow their children to be active observers are more likely to raise children who make their oral health a priority.

On top of teaching your child to brush his teeth twice a day and floss daily, there are other things you can do to help your child maintain strong teeth and healthy gums:

  • Take your child to the dentist at an early age. Once children reach the age of two, they should begin seeing the dentist twice a year. Not only will this help your child become comfortable at the dentist’s office, but it will give your dentist a baseline for your child’s oral health.
  • Be sure your child gets enough fluoride. If you have fluoride in your drinking water, good. If not, there are supplements that you can use. In addition, make sure your child is brushing with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Feed your child a healthy diet. A diet laden with sugar is detrimental to your child’s overall health and oral health. Make sure your child eats plenty of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, and whole grains. It is especially important to limit sugary drinks.

Making oral health a priority for your children is important. Early steps in oral health will prevent issues in the future. Start encouraging those habits now by contacting Engineered Smiles.

    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!

    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!

    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
