Dentis can help you to brush up on baby care

As many as 20 percent of children have cavities by the age of 3, and those cavities might be avoided with early checkups. Children are to see their dentist by the age of 1 but many parents do not bring children in for their firs check up until age 2 or even 3. this delay means dentists miss a chance to educate parents on caring for their young children's teeth. And parental education is critical, because children under the age of 5 or 6 lack the physical skills to really do a good job of brusing and flossing on their own.

Children do develop decay, and some of it is often rampant decay. If this decay is detected at an earlier age it would be faq less difficult for the children and the parents. Extensive decay may recquire a root canal and caps on baby teeth at surgeri cost of around $5000.

When children wake at night and are breast feed or bottle feed and than put back to bed without brushing their teeth, this occurrence leaves milk on the teeth overnight which invietes the growth of bacteria that cause tooth decay. Cleaning their mouthr is important to preven decay and to help them get use to having someone in theis mouth. Since babies can't spit, use infant tooth and gum cleanser without fluoride and brush from the gum line, not just the tips of the teeth. Flossing shoul start by age 4- or sooner if the teeth have grown close to eliminate the spaces betweem them.

Parents if your child doesn't want you to brush his teeth remember that just because he doesn't like it, doesn't mean you are off the hook. there's a lot of things children don't like! , but you have to take tooth and dental care seriously.
