Preventing Dental Problems in Children
Cavities are one of the most common childhood diseases – yet are preventable. Parents who are aware of the correct procedures will help to guarantee that the teeth of their young ones are protected at all times.
So, what are some of the ways in which the teeth of our children should be properly cared for?
- The first trip to the dentist should occur no later than 12 months after the child is born.
- Avoid sharing forks and spoons with your child to avoid spreading decay causing bacteria.
- Children who play sports should wear a mouth guard to protect their smile in the event of a minor fall or injury.
“The good news is that cavities are almost 100 percent preventable.”
