Eliminate cavities in 2013
Updated: 12/3/2012 5:58:09 AM

Eliminate cavities in 2013  The new year is approaching, and while people are making their resolutions for 2013, they should add taking better care of their teeth to the list. Recently, Dentistry IQ published an article stating that parents and dental health professionals should make 2013 a cavity-free year by instilling the importance of dental health in children.

The news source said that parents can take a "good cop" or a "bad cop" approach when encouraging their children to take care of their teeth. The good cop approach involves giving rewards to children when they are well-behaved at the dentist and have brushed their teeth properly everyday for a week without complaint.

The bad cop method involves showing kids pictures of rotted teeth or mouths with no teeth to scare them into practicing proper dental habits.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that cavities are the most common infectious disease seen in U.S. children. So, regardless of how they do it, parents need to stress the importance of dental care to their children.
