Children often fall short of maintaining good oral hygiene. As children are much prone to several tooth diseases, timely dental check-ups are significant for their oral health. Pediatric dentists say from infancy to becoming a teenager, scheduled visits to a dentist at each stage of their growth is necessary. It helps in preventing the possibility of cavities and tooth diseases that may occur. In addition to it, a few everyday practices would be beneficial in maintaining oral hygiene.
Dr. Prabhdeep Chahal, DMD, a Three Best Rated® pediatric dentist in Calgary, AB, suggests a few simple tips to maintain children’s dental health.
“I am a mother of three young children, and I know that keeping little mouths clean and healthy is a lot harder than it looks. Here are a few tips that can help keep our children cavity-free,” said Dr. Prabhdeep.
Limit grazing. Try hard to keep set times for snacks and meals (three meals and two snacks per day). We salivate when we are hungry, and this saliva helps buffer the acidity produced when we eat or drink. If we are grazing and eating all day long, the body does not have enough time to buffer these acids, and this can hurt our enamel very quickly.
Drink lots of water throughout the day. Not only is water super healthy for you, but it helps to rinse those teeth off and keep them clean throughout the day between brushing.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child be seen by a dentist when their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday, whatever comes first. Prevention is so important, and developing a good dental home early where your family is comfortable is paramount to the prevention of dental disease.
Dr. Prabhdeep quotes that, According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease, and the best way to avoid and prevent tooth decay is to see a dentist by age 1.
She further pointed out that, at her clinic, The Smile team Pediatric Dentistry, the treatments, and preventive techniques they employ depend on the child’s specific risk factors. They continue to change and build on those techniques at different stages of their growth.
Dr. Prabhdeep said, “We work with you to prevent tooth decay, and I am so happy to be able to confidently say that over 90% of the children that we have started seeing before the age of 1 do not have any cavities as children.”
