Best Time To Start Preventive Care For Your Child’s Teeth

Preventive care for on one's teeth starts with avoiding the problems that create the need for serious dental work in the first place. And the best place to start is early with kids as they first begin to brush and start the habits for protecting their teeth.

Dental Care For Kids To Prevent Serious Work Later

There is no question that the primary method of dental problem prevention in kids is a regularly application of flossing and good brushing combined with a health diet and fluoride exposure. All four elements contribute to healthy gums, removal of plaque, prevention of latent decay from sugar exposure, and strengthening of new teeth. The number one problem dentists see the most are multiple cavities in children and that comes from lack of care, poor diet and too much sugar consumption. All three are part of a preventive care strategy and easily doable with very little sacrifice on the part of parents.

Proper Cleaning Technique

Much of the poor prevention problem has to do with brushing and flossing technique. Kids frequently just brush laterally, which does little for the food trapped in between the slots of the teeth. And a lack of flossing or not going deep enough also means particles are missed. Instead, kids need to be taught to brush up and down as well as floss between every tooth, not just the front ones. This will heavily reduce trapped food and increase gum line health. Brushing in the morning and at night also reduces latent damage from sugar sitting overnight creating acids on the teeth enamel and provides significant preventive careone can easily perform at home.

A Bit Of Work Now Means A Lifetime Of Benefits

Kids who learn early how to brush right and floss regularly will carry the same habits over to their adult teeth and older years, making most of their dental visits about preventive care versus repair. That can mean maintaining their natural teeth longer, potentially avoiding gum disease damage, and having a healthier dental condition longer in life. Simple reinforcement of key practices have tremendous, long-lasting positive outcomes which has been statistically proven again and again.
