Hello Lone Tree friends! Have you ever noticed someone who refuses to flash a genuine smile? Even in a family picture, they stay tight-lipped. Even if they’re laughing at the funniest joke ever, they cover their mouths. Maybe this person is you and maybe you need a smile makeover. Don’t be embarrassed! Here at Almeida […]
Hello, we’re Drs. Almeida & Bell of Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center. Lone Tree parents usually know the basics on children’s oral health: limit sugar, make sure they brush and floss regularly, take them to the dentist for twice-yearly exams and cleanings, discourage between-meal snacking, see that they get enough calcium and Vitamin D, etc. Many Colorado parents also give their kids fluoride supplements if their municipal water supply has an inadequate level of fluoride.
Is there anything else a concerned parent can do to promote children’s oral health? Yes! Have children use an oral rinse that contains fluoride.
