PDA Reminds Parents About the Importance of Children's Oral Health
Date:2/17/2010

HARRISBURG, Pa., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It's National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM), an oral health campaign designed to educate children about the importance of good oral health. The Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA) emphasizes developing good habits at an early age to help children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

  • Brush teeth twice a day, for at least two minutes each time. Brushing after breakfast and before bedtime is recommended. To help your child brush for the correct amount of time, try setting an egg timer or listening to a song. It is important to brush all tooth surfaces, including the gums, backs of teeth and even the tongue. Talk to your child's dentist about when to begin using a fluoride toothpaste and fluoride supplements if your community's water supply is not fluoridated.
  • Floss between teeth at least once a day. Flossing helps remove pieces of food that get stuck between teeth and under gums, reaching places your toothbrush can't.
  • Establish healthy eating habits for your child. Offer a variety of foods from the five major food groups: fruits, vegetables, dairy, grains and meat/poultry/fish. Avoid sugary beverages, such as soda, juice and sports drinks, and snacks that contain high amounts of sugar. Each time you eat or drink something with sugar, harmful acids attack your teeth for at least twenty minutes. Repeat attacks can lead to tooth decay.
  • Visit the dentist every six months for a checkup and professional cleaning. Regular visits wil
