Basic dental care for your child

Tooth decay can be prevented with good oral care. It is much simpler and more affordable to prevent tooth decay than to repair a decayed tooth.  Daily cleanings, healthy eating habits, and the right amount of decay-fighting fluoride can help your child's teeth.
Prevent Cavities
Cavities are caused by tooth decay, a disease that damages and breaks down teeth.  Untreated tooth decay can lead to pain, loss of teeth and loss of confidence.  Children with tooth pain cannot eat or sleep properly and may miss days of school.  Even worse, an abscess (pus-filled sac) from a cavity can cause serious or even life-threatening infections when left untreated.
Cleaning your Child's Teeth
Teeth should be brushed twice a day and flossed once a day to remove plaque. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that builds up on teeth. Using fluoride toothpaste and mouth rinses can make tooth enamel more resistant to the acid that causes tooth decay and also helps repair areas where the acid attacks have already begun.
Healthy balanced diet
For good dental and overall health, be sure your child eats a balanced diet with foods from the major food groups.  Avoid cookies, candy and other sticky sweet foods as snacks.  Encourage healthy choices like carrots, crackers and water instead.
Dental visits
Professional dental services, such as regular cleanings, fluoride treatments and the application of sealants that prevent tooth decay, can save money and reduce the need for further dental treatment. Talk to your dentist about your child's dental needs and at what age they should start scheduling visits.

Pediatric dentists are trained to handle the wide range of issues associated with kids' dental health. They also know when to refer you to a different type of specialist, such as an orthodontist to correct an overbite or an oral surgeon for jaw realignment. on Thursday, August 14, 2014 5:42 AM
Mauvaise nouvelle : pas un gar?on à l'horizon… Autour de la table, une trentenaire très motivée pour rénover une vieille table de bistrot, une dame chic rêvant de donner une seconde vie à la chambre de ses parents, une Californienne se creusant la tête pour savoir quel vernis mettre sur ses replique montres de jardin…Ambiance détendue mais studieuse.

Children are always prone to oral problems. Parents are always so much anxious about their children’s oral health. The parents should consult with children dentist to ensure the perfect care for their children.

I appreciate that you briefly talked about flossing once a day. I feel like this is something often overlooked but is extremely helpful. Not only that, but getting a child to start flossing early seems like it's a good way to get them into the habit of doing it. Perhaps it could be worth it to set up a goal for them if they floss regularly, just to get them in the mindset that this is beneficial.

Some of experts dentists don't like to promising your baby a charming treat if she conduct well at the dentist clinic. Doing so will only rise their fear. Saying, "If you do not shout or cry, you'll get a chocolate," might make your little baby think, "What is something bad regarding to the dentist that I might want to cry?".
