Getting a Jump on Children’s Dental Care During National Children’s Dental Health Month

Children's Dental Health Month

Since February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, and many dentists are hosting Give Kids A Smile program events in their local communities, now is a great time for parents to start instilling beneficial dental care habits.

When it comes to the oral health of children, it is never too early for parents to start the teaching process. In most cases, all of a child’s baby teeth will be present by the age of two and a half and the permanent teeth will not likely appear until age six or seven. That means that developing proper dental care habits during this time can make a significant difference in oral health now and into the future.

It may surprise some parents to learn that tooth decay is a serious problem in preschool populations. Roughly ten percent of two-year-old children have at least one cavity, and by age five, approximately half of all kids do. Cavities in baby teeth may seem like a minor issue, but this type of decay can harm permanent teeth and lead to future trouble. For that reason, early teaching by parents of proper dental care habits is essential.

Young children need to brush their teeth twice daily with a soft toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of toothpaste. Parents should supervise brushing sessions to ensure that a thorough job is done and that excessive amounts of toothpaste are not swallowed.

Another important element of ensuring children’s oral health is to schedule regular dental examinations and cleanings. Establishing a good relationship with a family dentistry practitioner will help to identify problems at an early stage, when treatment is most likely to be effective.

Encouraging kids to stick to a balanced, healthy diet that does not contain extreme amounts of sugar is another useful tip for parents interested in promoting optimal dental health.

With its National Children’s Dental Health Month activities, the American Dental Association and its member dentists are encouraging parents, caregivers, and teachers to help boost awareness of the need for good oral health and sound dental care practices for children throughout the U.S. That effort, in conjunction with the Give Kids A Smile program events being hosted by dental care professionals across the country, makes February an ideal time to get kids on the right track to lasting dental health.
