How Your Child’s Mental Health Impacts Their Oral Health

Teaching your child about taking care of their teeth is important. However, it’s also valuable to realize how their mental health impacts their smile too!

We’re sharing a video today that talks about the connection between mental health and oral health. When your child is stressed, they may not sleep well, grind their teeth, clench their jaw, and neglect their oral hygiene practices. However, by practicing good mental health like eating healthy, exercising, getting outside, visiting family and friends, and more, you are practicing good oral hygiene at the same time.

Make sure you take your child to their dental cleanings and exams appointments twice a year. It’s important to be a good example too and practice good oral hygiene and visit the dentist twice a year as well. Call Charlotte Dentistry at 704-285-0846 to schedule your appointment in Charlotte, NC.
