Good dental health starts with the first tooth

Parents should schedule their child New parents stress over everything when it comes to the health of their babies, from the food they eat to the sunscreen they wear. One thing that parents need to be sure doesn't slip through the cracks, however, is their child's dental health. EmpowerHer recently published some reminders from The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Dental Association (ADA) about the importance of maintaining the oral health of young children. 

Parents should schedule their child's first dentist appointment as soon as their baby's first tooth comes in.

"As your child grows, AAPD explains that preventative dentistry can include sealants to protect permanent molars from decay and orthodontia recommendations [such as braces]," according to EmpowerHer.

Once a child's teeth have come in, it's important to teach them proper brushing techniques and to not swallow toothpaste.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that dental cavities affect U.S. children more than any other chronic infectious disease, highlighting the importance of looking after the teeth of young people.
