A Healthy Smile for Your Child

Smile! At AltaMed, we’re here to make sure your children have strong, healthy teeth. 

Did you know that 20% of kids between 5 and 11 years old have at least one untreated cavity? 
Cavities that go unfixed can lead to problems and get in your child’s way of eating, speaking, and even learning. 

That’s why it’s essential to schedule regular trips to the dentist, set a good example for them, and follow these easy tips to keep your child’s teeth looking good (and yours, too!):

  • Remind your child to brush their teeth three times a day. Brushing after meals helps remove build-up around the teeth and gums.
  • Limit the amount of sweets your child eats every day. Sugary foods like candy, or drinks such as soda and juice can increase the chances of getting a cavity.
  • Be sure to schedule a dental checkup for your kids every six months to help catch problems before they start. 
  • Ask about sealants. Sealants protect your child’s back teeth from cavities and tooth decay. You can learn more about them here.

You love to see your children smile. We do too! Help them maintain healthy teeth that will last a lifetime.
