Did you know that roughly 50% of children have tooth decay by the time they’re in third grade? Good dental health starts early in life, and it’s never too soon to teach your child about the importance of daily brushing and flossing. You can show your child how to have good dental health habits by being a model of oral health and bringing him or her to the dentist on a regular basis. Children’s dentistry is very important, so schedule appointments with your South Riding dentist for regular cleanings by the time your child is age three. Encourage healthy eating and limit the sweet foods and drinks your child consumes to prevent tooth decay. Check out this infographic to learn more about children’s dentistry and to find out how you can keep your children’s teeth healthy in between visits to the dentist.
