Spring into Clean Teeth: Your Guide to Dental Spring Cleaning

May 07, 2024

As the flowers bloom and the days get longer, spring is the perfect time to freshen up more than just your home. Just like we tidy up our living spaces during spring cleaning, it’s also essential to refresh our dental hygiene routines. In this blog post, we’ll explore how spring cleaning can be fun and easy when it comes to keeping your kids’ smiles bright and sparkling.

Brush Away the Winter Blues!

Let’s start our spring dental cleaning adventure by checking in with the kids’ brushing habits! Remembering to brush twice a day for a whole two minutes is the best way to maintain a nice and clean smile. You can also take this time to also refresh your kids’ oral care kits. Encourage your kids with a fresh toothbrush with their favourite cartoon character, and have them pick out a yummy toothpaste flavour they love! 

Floss Out the Old, In with the New

Just like we declutter our homes during spring cleaning, it’s time to declutter our mouths by incorporating daily flossing into our routines. Show your kids how to floss like a pro by turning it into a game or a fun challenge to see who can floss most consistently in the house! Flossing is like giving your teeth a hug – they will thank you for it by staying strong and healthy. 

Checkup Time: Schedule Your Spring Dental Visit

Spring is the perfect time to schedule a dental checkup and cleaning for your little ones. Your child’s teeth are changing and growing, so it is important to book a cleaning appointment every six months after the first visit. This allows our dentists to identify any abnormalities, prevent tooth decay, and maintain strong oral health and wellness overall. Waiting longer than six months can cause a build-up of plaque, leading to cavities or sometimes other oral health issues like gum disease or tooth decay. This appointment is also a great time to ask your dentist any questions pertaining to your child’s oral health and learn new techniques to make flossing and brushing a more enjoyable experience.

Feel free to book online using the booking tool on our website or reach out by calling or emailing us. We are here to support your family in getting their smiles in tip-top shape!

Spring Clean Some Snacking Habits 

Show your little ones how yummy fruits and veggies can be. Apples, carrots, celery, and fruits with vitamin C all have amazing benefits for maintaining healthy and bright smiles! And remember, water is the best drink for keeping those smiles happy and hydrated. 

Spring is all about new beginnings, so why not start fresh with your family’s dental care routine? By brushing and flossing together, scheduling a fun trip to the dentist, refreshing oral supplies, and snacking smart, you are well on your way to bright and healthy smiles all season long. Let’s spring into action and make this the best dental spring cleaning ever!
