Proper Education About Caring for Babies’ Teeth is Essential According to Warren Melamed

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Warren Melamed, a dental professional who is focused on philanthropy, is lending his support to a new article from CNN that explains the importance of understanding how to care for babies’ teeth. The piece notes that 97 percent of parents were unaware that they should bring their children in for a visit to the dentist by the time they turn one. The development of the baby’s first tooth, between the ages of three and nine months, actually acts as an indicator to parents that a dental visit is necessary.

Dr. Art Nowak comments, “We want parents to be aware that a newborn’s teeth are already developing. Parents can’t see them, but they are there under the gums.”

Though checkups for babies with just one or two teeth may seem unnecessary, in reality these visits become important in order to set the young boy or girl up for a lifetime of good oral health. Tooth decay has become a chronic issue among children, and is now more common than asthma. Yet, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention note, the issue is entirely avoidable when parents get proactive about their baby’s oral hygiene.

Warren Melamed explains that habits that start when the child is very young continue for life, and are therefore important. He states, “Keeping the child’s teeth healthy from the start can help to prevent them from experiencing problems later on. It is also important to get kids into the habit of seeing a dentist, so this action just becomes part of their normal life, thus ensuring good oral hygiene for years to come.”

Dr. Beverly Largent, a pediatric dentist in Kentucky, states, “I remind parents that this is a very important time. This baby is one year old or younger. They have new teeth. You are starting from the very beginning. And you have all the power in the world to keep your child from ever having a cavity.”

During a visit to the dentist, the professional will evaluate the child’s mouth, thus enabling them to catch any problems before they are able to become more severe.

Dentists can then to talk to moms and dads about the proper way to care for babies’ teeth and gums. This includes wiping down the child’s gums after they eat or drink.     

Parents should pay attention to any white spots or discoloration that they see developing on their baby’s teeth, as this can be a sign that there is a problem that requires care from a dentist. Parents should understand that as soon as a tooth erupts, it is susceptible to plaque and decay. It does not matter whether the child is drinking juice, water, or breast milk, teeth can acquire plaque buildup and begin to decay.

Warren Melamed encourages parents of young children to pay special attention to their kid’s oral hygiene, bringing them in to see a dental professional regularly.


Warren Melamed is a well-respected dental professional who is known for his efforts as the CEO and President of Oral Health Management, which is a company based in the state of Tennessee. He created Monarch Dental in Dallas, Texas. The group went public in 1997, and Melamed has stayed involved in it as the Chairman, President, and Chief Dental Officer.
