February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and we want to bring awareness to the importance of helping children care for their smiles! Maintaining a healthy smile helps children feel more confident and lays a foundation for their future!
Decay in a child’s tooth doesn’t just harm the appearance of their smile, it can lead to a lot of pain and discomfort! This pain can change the way a child acts, eats and communicates. The more dental treatment that is needed, the more days of a school a child will have to miss. The good news is that cavities and dental decay can be prevented! Consistent dental care helps children build and maintain a smile they can be proud of!
By keeping up on a child’s smile, you can help their teeth and gums stay healthy and lay a good foundation for their future permanent teeth! Good dental memories and a friendly dental team encourages children as they grow to keep up on their oral health. Preventative treatments, including dental sealants and fluoride treatments, help strengthen and protect primary teeth from decay.
National Children’s Dental Health Month is a great opportunity to highlight the importance of a child’s smile all month long! If you work with children or have children of your own, there are many ways you can help bring awareness to the importance of children’s dental health.
