Like any new parent, you will do anything to give your baby a healthy start in life.
A key ingredient in your child’s wellbeing is good oral hygiene. Even at a young age this is very important because tooth decay is the leading chronic childhood disease, far outpacing other conditions like asthma, diabetes and obesity.
While you may be thinking about getting your kids to brush and floss, remember that dental care actually begins at birth, before your child’s first tooth appears and long before he or she can hold a toothbrush.
You already know it is important for your child to brush and floss regularly. But did you know that tooth decay is the leading chronic childhood disease?
In fact, early childhood caries – such as decayed teeth, missing or loose teeth from decay or fillings by age six – are four times more common than childhood obesity, five times more common than asthma and 20 times more common than juvenile diabetes.
So how do you motivate your kids to develop good dental hygiene habits and avoid the many health risks that come with tooth decay?
