Dental care and checkups essential for kids too
Updated: 8/12/2009 5:00:08 PM

Dental care and checkups essential for kids too As kids prepare to return to school, parents should remember to schedule dental checkups to make sure they have healthy teeth.

According to the Sun Sentinel, children who do not regularly visit the dentist are at a higher risk for cavities. Dental health professionals can also screen for vitamin deficiencies and other potential problems during checkups.

They can even tell whether a child is at risk for diabetes or gum disease.

The American Dental Association further explains that very young children are at risk for early childhood caries which encompasses lesions on or fillings in primary teeth. In some parts of the country, this is a significant problem.

The Sun Sentinel reveals that this is five times more common in young children than asthma.

Cavity-causing bacteria are also introduced into the mouth when the first teeth start to come through and as a result, children should have their first dental visit within six months of this event and no later than 12.
