Poor oral hygiene can cause discomfort in children for many daily activities. It can make it difficult for them to eat, focus, and possible even sleep! To ensure that your child can concentrate and do the best to their ability, be sure to schedule them a dental check-up. It is important not to wait until they start feeling pain!
Several studies have demonstrated the link between poor dental health and low grade point averages and nearly three times more missed days at school due to dental problems. Over 51 million school hours are lost every year due to tooth decay, and parents miss an average of 2.5 days of work per year to care for kids with dental problems.
To avoid tooth decay in your child, be sure to take them to the dentist AT LEAST every 6 months. It also is a good idea to make sure they know the proper ways of brushing and flossing. To ensure that your child has good oral health, it is important to restrict their diets as well as teaching them how to care for their teeth.
Many children are given drinks and snacks that are high in sugar. It is best to avoid sugary drinks and stick with giving your child water. It is also recommended to give them foods that aren’t high in sugar. Bring your child to visit Dr. Kachalia before school starts so they can be smiling when they get their report card!
