Nanaimo Family Dentists
Here at Rutherford Dental, located in Nanaimo, we work with you to make sure your experience in our office is comfortable for your entire family. Children do a lot of growing, and that means their teeth are constantly changing as they get older. Choosing the right dentist office is essential to making sure your child’s teeth stay healthy throughout their childhood. We understand the importance of a healthy mouth and try our best to make the process as smooth as possible. Try roleplaying at home before the appointment to help your child better understand what they might go through during their visit to the dentist.
As your child grows, this will build a bond between Dentists and Patients. That bond will help in developing habits that will be brought over into their adulthood, ensuring healthy teeth. Keeping your family up to date on dental health helps teach about the importance of injury prevention and may emphasize the link between diet and cavities.

Tips For Helping Your Family Maintain Oral Health
Nanaimo Dental Centre works to help avoid costly procedures by making sure you and your family are using proper oral care at home. Here are some helpful tips in making sure you and your family are properly brushing.
- Starting early may help familiarize your child with brushing their teeth. Twice a day is usually the recommendation for healthy teeth.
- After your child brushes their teeth for the night, try to make sure they do not eat or drink anything that may contain ingredients that cause damage. Sugary drinks and food at night are one of the leading causes of cavities.
- Once teeth are grown in, your child can floss. This is essential in cleaning up particles in between the teeth that a toothbrush might have missed. It is recommended to floss twice a day as well to help prevent cavities.
- Remember: Even as we grow, taking care of our teeth is an important part of staying healthy. It not only affects our mouth but our body as well. Always keep an eye out for symptoms that might cause fever or effect your existing conditions, because dental problems can affect them.
