Parents should instill good dental habits in their children starting at a young age
Updated: 11/4/2010 7:00:01 PM

Parents should instill good dental habits in their children starting at a young age Although kids may have only developed a few baby teeth by the time they are one year old, some dental experts suggest that it is never too early for children to go to the dentist. According to New Jersey-based dentist Jason Rosenfeld, the ideal time for children to visit the dentist is when they are very young, NorthJersey.com reports.

Rosenfeld suggests that pediatric dentists play an important role in identifying potential oral problems as well as informing children about establishing the proper dental routine.

Although children may only have baby teeth at this point, infection can still occur and cause them to experience pain, Rosenfeld told the news source. He adds that kids who see their dentist at an early age can be provided with a risk assessment to help prevent future oral problems.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, good dental habits can help prevent other health problems such as diabetes or heart disease.

There are affordable ways that parents can find their kids the proper dental care. Discount dental plans provide low-cost coverage for individuals and their families.
