Does diet affect my child's teeth?
Yes. The common advice about avoiding sweets, sticky foods and between-meal snacks is good advice. Limit sweet snacks and drinks between and after meals. Have meals and snacks at regular times. Too much snacking between meals can cause cavities. Teeth-friendly snacks include fresh fruits and vegetables, and cheese and crackers.
Baby bottles can create additional problems with your child's dental health. When liquid--like milk and juice--from a bottle stays in contact with the teeth for a long time, the sugars cause tooth decay. This can create a condition called bottle mouth. Your baby's teeth can develop cavities and become pitted or discolored. Never put a baby to bed with a bottle, unless it contains plain water. Don't let your child walk around during the day with a bottle, and teach your child to use a drinking cup around his or her first birthday.
Is thumb-sucking bad for my child?
It's normal for children to suck their thumbs, their fingers or a pacifier. Most children give up this habit on their own by age 4, with no harm done to their teeth. If your child still has a sucking habit after age 4, tell your dentist. Your dentist can watch carefully for any problems as the teeth develop. In most children there is no reason to worry about a sucking habit until around age 6, when the permanent front teeth come in.
When should I start taking my child to the dentist?
TTF recommends that parents take their child to a dentist around his or her first birthday. This gives the dentist a chance to look for early problems with your child's teeth. Pediatric dentists specialize in treating children's dental health. You and your child's dentist should review important information about diet, bottles, tooth brushing and fluoride use. Visiting the dentist from a young age will help your child become comfortable with his or her dentist. It also establishes the good habit of regular dental check-ups.
An early visit to the dentist is a good way to learn proper oral hygiene at an early age, including avoiding nighttime bottles or cups of formula or juice, proper tooth brushing, and a diet that promotes good dental health.
More Reasons for Dental care of kids
How about several hundred or thousand reasons?
Tooth filling - 5000INR
Dental crown - 50000INR
Root canal - 25000INR
When you consider the high cost of poor dental hygiene, including cavities, fillings, or a root canal, it makes much more sense to follow basic dental care and hygiene tips and keep your kids teeth healthy.
And preventative care, including basic brushing and flossing, sealants, and regular visits to the dentist every six months, is much less expensive than having to pay to fix cavities.
