At Smile Center for Kids in Sunland and Edgemere TX, we don’t like providing the reality check; especially around the holidays. if you have kids, you want everyone in your family to think positively and enjoy their time, and that’s well and good. But we would be an ineffective dental team if we didn’t remind you to take extra care of your child’s teeth this holiday season.
With candies and cakes just around the corner – or in the rearview – your child is bound to be facing some sticky or brittle food debris that is threatening to lodge itself in your gum-line. If this happens, and you don’t help them clean it off with proper brushing and flossing, your little one might be facing greater problems come January and February.
In the first few hours, the bacteria from this food will coat their teeth. However, this plaque is removable until it turns into tartar. Once it’s attached to the teeth, only a professional cleaning will be able to remove it.
If it’s not removed, it can contribute to conditions like gum disease, inflammation, and even tooth loss. Smile Center for Kids in Sunland and Edgemere TX wants all our patients to help their children avoid these ailments and enjoy many holiday seasons for years to come. We offer pediatric and general dentistry, and serve satisfied patients in El Paso, Anthony, Socorro, Horizon City, and Canutillo. Contact us today!
