'When the Tooth Fairy is Not Enough': A Collection of the Most Common Misconceptions in Oral Health Care Set in a Parent-Friendly Book

BAY HARBOR, Fla., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Xavier Azar is proud to present his new release, "When the Tooth Fairy Is Not Enough" (published by AuthorHouse), a highly educational book for parents that teaches all the importance of daily dental care beginning after birth and continuing on through one's adult life.

"When the Tooth Fairy Is Not Enough" explores many basic oral dental care preventive therapies as well as informing the masses about several common misconceptions relating to pediatric oral health. One common misconception parents tend to believe is that since they will end up falling out, baby teeth do not require much care or attention. Truth is, cavities and infections in baby teeth can directly affect children's permanent dentition resulting in prolonged and expensive treatments.

Driven by a consistent call by parents in his daily practice to have a universal tool that could educate them about their children's proper oral care, Dr. Azar found it highly engaging to be able to share his passion for pediatric dental care. "Parents may not realize the impact of improper oral care and its consequences. Parents cannot and should not leave children's dentition in the hands of a fairy tale character. Children's teeth need professional care. The sooner the better," says Azar.

Here are a few eye-opening facts about pediatric oral care Dr. Azar shares with his readers in "When the Tooth Fairy Is Not Enough":

  • Cavities are easily passed from mother to child by sharing food and utensils.
  • Dental visits for the first twelve months of life are very important!
  • Never allow babies and toddlers to finish a bottle containing milk, formula, fruit juices, sports drinks, or other sweetened drinks while napping or sleeping at night. This includes "on-demand" breast feeding.
