Give Your Child a Reason to Smile in February

the science of smiles pasadenaAs common as cavities are, they are 100% preventable!

According to the CDC, tooth decay is the most chronic disease among children, 6 to 11, and adolescents 12 to 19 years old. Sadly, parents contribute to their children’s tooth decay long before they can brush or floss on their own. In conjunction with National Children’s Dental Health Month in February, a Delta Dental study finds that a majority of parents (at least 51%) understand that oral care habits, like brushing and flossing, are responsible for their children’s oral health. Yet, almost of a third of children don’t even brush at least once a day!

The earlier children learn about taking care of their teeth, the better. It is important that we reach out and teach children healthy habits and that visits to the dental office are important. Here at THE SCIENCE OF SMILES®, we especially like to expose our young patients to the amazing dental technology being used right here in our office. Daily brushing and flossing, and professional dental checkups every six months will help insure that your child NEVER gets a cavity!

Remember: Although they’re small, baby teeth ARE important. A child’s baby and permanent teeth are important for chewing, speaking, and appearance. In addition, baby teeth maintain space for the permanent teeth to come into the mouth. Since a healthy mouth contributes greatly to a child’s self-esteem, good oral health practices should begin in infancy and continue throughout life.

Join us as we honor National Children’s Dental Health month at THE SCIENCE OF SMILES®. This year’s campaign slogan: Defeat Monster Mouth!

How can you get involved?

Spread the word to family and friends. And schedule an hygiene and check up appointment for your child. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children to get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
