Fun a Factor for Children's Dental Care
Date:3/5/2008

NEW YORK, March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- MS -- Keeping up with a kid is no easy feat. Most parents know that a child is a bundle of energy with an attention span that lasts mere minutes -- if you're lucky! So when it comes to teaching children the lessons of being an independent person -- such as personal grooming habits -- there are distinct challenges. But with a little patience and a dash of fun, no task is insurmountable.

More Cavities in Young Kids Means Better Brushing Needed

There is growing evidence that children's dental health is an area on which most families need to focus more attention. Dentists say they are treating more and more young patients who have cavities in their primary teeth. A new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study reports that almost a third of all kids between 2 and 5 have cavities in their baby teeth. Experts attribute the trend to several factors, including an upsurge in sugared snacks, juice and soda consumption, the rising use of bottled, non-fluoridated water, and the fact that children simply don't spend enough time brushing teeth.

Many people are under the assumption that oral hygiene is not something that really needs to be worried about in young kids. After all, baby teeth will eventually fall out and new teeth will grow in their place. But this is far from the case. The American Dental Association (ADA) says that cavities in baby teeth can cause a number of problems, including tooth loss, ear and speech problems, crooked permanent teeth, severe pain, poor self-image, and tooth decay. That's why the ADA recommends starting children's dental care when they are still babies. A dentist's visit should occur by age 1. Brushing should begin at age 2 and be supervised until a child is 6 or 7.
