Alaska Dentistry For Kids: How The Tooth Fairy Can Help With Your Kids' Dental Care, Anchorage, Alaska

Parents have a tremendous opportunity to help their children learn the ins and outs of excellent oral care. In the laid-back atmosphere of Alaska Dentistry for Kids in Anchorage, your children's dentist is serious about prevention and early intervention for dental problems like cavities and infection.

Even though primary teeth—widely-known as baby teeth—will fall out at some point, it is crucial that these teeth remain as healthy as possible. Essentially, your child's primary teeth are preparing the jaw for permanent teeth that must last a lifetime. In order to fulfill their purpose, baby teeth need daily TLC in the form of healthy hygiene habits. The team at the Anchorage practice performs kids' dental care in a way that promotes positive experiences both at home and in the dental chair.

They understand that parents can use all the help they can get teaching their kids about dental care. The Tooth Fairy is known for her collection of healthy baby teeth. Many kids look forward to her visits or, more specifically, her gifts. 

In addition to celebrating your child's bravery while losing a tooth, there are a few ways the Tooth Fairy can also provide assistance as you teach proper hygiene:

  • Personal Notes: Kids love receiving praise for cleaning their teeth! Occasional cards or notes from the Tooth Fairy can encourage your child to remain motivated with brushing and flossing.
  • Gifts: Who says the Tooth Fairy only gives gifts after a tooth is lost? She also loves promoting oral care through small gifts like a new toothbrush or favorite toothpaste.
  • Gentle Reminders: Children can be encouraged to have good oral hygiene when they know that the Tooth Fairy pays a premium for healthy, non-damaged teeth—but she doesn't like seeing fillings or cavities!
