developing good dental habits

Benjamin Franklin once said:

It is easier to prevent bad habits than to break them.

At Timothy G. Mahoney DDS, we believe this is especially true for dental health. For parents in the Wetaskiwin area, teaching your children good oral hygiene techniques early in life will benefit their smiles throughout their life.

If you wait too long to teach your child how to brush and floss, or if you don’t make sure they are doing it enough, you’re setting yourself up for a lot of work down the road.

It’s very hard to convince an older child that they should be spending two or three times longer brushing their teeth each morning and night. But if they’ve done it for as long as they can remember, then their habits should be sufficient to avoid excessive dental decay or the need for children’s cosmetic dentistry.

If you are looking for quality dental care in the Leduc, Camrose, or Ponoka area, give us a call here at Timothy G. Mahoney DDS. We are currently accepting new patients, and we would love to help you learn how to teach kids good dental health, including brushing habits. We’ll also answer questions you have about general or cosmetic dentistry.
