The Importance of Teaching Kids Good Oral Hygiene Habits

Posted on 12/19/2022 by Nancy Shiba DDS
Did you know that one in four children has untreated tooth decay? That's a pretty staggering statistic, and it's one of the reasons why it's so important to teach kids good oral hygiene habits from a young age. We will discuss six critical reasons why you should teach your kids to take care of their teeth! Dental Health Will Minimize the Risk f Tooth Decay and Other Oral Health Problems Tooth decay happens when plaque (a sticky film of bacteria) builds up on teeth and gums, producing acids that eat away at tooth enamel. It will lead to cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems. Best oral hygiene tips, like brushing and flossing regularly, can help remove plaque from teeth and gums and reduce the risk of tooth decay and other oral health problems. Maintain Overall Health Dental hygiene is linked to overall health. Bacteria that result in gum disease can enter the bloodstream and affect other body parts, including the heart. By teaching kids to brush and floss their teeth, you're helping them reduce their risk of developing other health problems. For example, some health issues like diabetes, respiratory disease, and osteoporosis are linked to poor oral health. Good oral hygiene habits can also help kids avoid bad breath. Halitosis, or bad breath, results from bacteria in the mouth. Left untreated, it can be embarrassing and make it difficult for kids to socialize. Manage Dental Anxiety Dental anxiety is real, and it affects people of all ages. For some kids, the anxiety is so severe that they avoid going to the dentist altogether. It will lead to problems, including tooth decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss. When you teach your kids good oral hygiene habits, you also teach them how to manage their dental anxiety. It is a valuable skill that will serve them well throughout their lives. Our clinic offers the best treatment and services to help ensure your child's teeth are healthy and they have a great smile....
