Caring for your own smile is something that you’ve probably gotten used to for the most part. However, even though you’re an adult and have done it for a long time, there may still be moments during which you have questions or uncertainty. Now, imagine you’re a small child attempting to keep up with hygiene, while communicating the subtle nuances of confusion to you: It sounds a bit challenging! As a result, your Riverside children’s dentist would like to help (both you and your little one), so you can better understand what your child might need if things aren’t going very smoothly at the moment!

Reminder: Your Child Might Be Tired

If your child is crying or upset every single brushing session, then one thing to keep in mind is the timing. Your Riverside children’s dentist reminds you that particularly at night, if you’ve had to wake your child up to brush and floss or if your little one is already very sleepy, this may not go very well. Brush and floss not long after dinner, so your child has the energy needed!

Reminder: Your Child Might Be In Pain

Don’t immediately assume if dental hygiene sessions have become problematic that your child simply doesn’t feel like it. Your Riverside children’s dentist reminds you that it’s a good idea to ask your child how she or he feels. Ask pointed questions if you think something is wrong. You may discover your child has a toothache, etc.

Reminder: Your Child Might Be Confused

Your child might not know how to ask for help but might need assistance with dental hygiene. Monitor your kids’ habits and offer guidance when necessary!
