The Importance of Oral Hygiene and Diet During this Pandemic…
What we do
What does a pediatric dentist in Indianapolis do? They fix cavities, clean teeth, and give shots. These are common things people use to describe what we do. It is likely that most children’s dentists in Indianapolis would agree that it is really our job to educate you and your kids about how to best care for your own teeth, while teaching you tools that you can use to prevent oral disease. If you are lucky, you will only see us a few times a year for exams and to check on things. Ultimately, you are the one that spends every day taking care of your teeth and it is what happens daily that prevents oral disease from spreading. Today’s pandemic has opened a lot of people’s eyes to basic hygiene practices that can prevent the spread of major diseases. The mouth is no different. The old “brushing and flossing two times a day for two minutes” is just as true today as when it was created. The fact is that most people would admit that they frequently forget or avoid doing these two things, which just builds on habits that can be harmful over time. As your kids’ dentist in Indianapolis, my goal is to try and teach this to your kids, and have these habits be second nature for them by the time they are old enough to make their own choices.
Another extremely important choice we all must make in regards to overall oral hygiene is what we put into our mouths and bodies, or in other words, our diet. Why is diet so important? One of the only things that can overpower impeccable oral hygiene in causing cavities is a diet that the bacteria enjoy even more than your body. Everyone has thousands of bacteria hanging around in their mouth at all times that can act as either good guys or bad guys, depending on the environment they are given. That environment is mostly influenced by diet, hygiene, medical conditions and medications. It can take the body roughly thirty minutes to naturally clear out a food or drink once it has been ingested. The concern with frequent snacking and sipping on beverages is that every time your body is finishing a cleanup, the bacteria are provided with another round of food to keep them going. It is the difference between a battering ram being swung at a gate once, or being allowed to slowly gain momentum and repeatedly weaken the gate. As your pediatric dentist in Indianapolis, I implore you and your children to avoid snacking on sticky, sugary foods between meals and drink plenty of water instead of coffee with creamer/sugar, sports drinks and sodas.
It is extremely important to start your kids off with early appointments to see a pediatric dentist in Indianapolis. Generally speaking, a good rule of thumb for a first visit to a children’s dentist in Indianapolis, is no later than their first birthday. If it has been longer than a year since you have seen a kids’ dentist, we encourage you to book an appointment for a dental exam today.
