Parental Guidance Suggested – Helping to Keep Children’s Teeth Healthy

Children's Dental Health Month

Because the American Dental Association has designated February as National Children’s Dental Health Month, it really is a perfect time for moms and dads to study up on the proper care of their young children’s teeth and gums. Parents everywhere owe it to their children to understand the important role oral health and proper dental care play when it comes to baby teeth. Because they facilitate speaking and chewing, and also help prepare the jaw for the eventual emergence of permanent teeth, baby teeth require daily attention and maintenance.

By following these dental care practices, you can dramatically reduce oral bacteria and significantly lower the risk of tooth decay:

  • Never allow an infant to fall asleep with a bottle.
  • Do not dip pacifiers in honey as a way to calm your baby.
  • Do not share eating utensils or cups with your children.
  • Avoid giving children sweetened beverages, sugary snacks, or a large number of snacks during the day.
  • Help young children brush their teeth.
  • Supervise your children’s brushing sessions and make sure they have the right toothbrush and toothpaste.
  • Teach older children how to floss.

Family dentistry professionals will be demonstrating their commitment to the oral health of children throughout the nation during National Children’s Dental Health Month and Give Kids A Smile events. Be sure to teach your children the importance of proper dental care—they will thank you later.
