Being A Role Model
It is good to practice good dental hygiene and promote good oral hygiene practices with your children to reduce and eliminate gingivitis. The more you encourage these habits, as well as providing them with healthy fruits and vegetables, you're playing a crucial role in preventing gingivitis.
With consistent home care, gums should resemble their normal pink state in a matter of weeks, if not several days. However, if an improved diet and excellent oral care do not improve your children's gingivitis, visit your dental professional. They can discuss the problem, rule out more serious causes, and recommend the best treatment plan.
Learning how to treat gingivitis in toddlers and children may seem like a big undertaking. Still, it really comes down to helping your child understand the consequences of plaque buildup, develop great oral care, eat healthy foods, and attend regular cleanings. When your child’s gums are firm and healthy again, continue the work of forming great oral health habits. That way, they’ll keep that same beautiful smile you love for life.
