If you have children, you naturally want to do everything you possibly can to protect them.
Since tooth decay is the most prevalent childhood disease, pediatric dental decay and childhood cavities should be high on the list. Taking your children to a highly qualified, experienced pediatric dentist in Anaheim regularly is a very important part of a good preventative plan.
Childhood tooth decay is very common. About forty-two percent of children between the ages of two and eleven develop a cavity in their baby (or primary) teeth. One of the most common reasons young children get tooth decay is because of inadequate dental care and not brushing your child’s teeth well enough or frequently enough. Preventative care is the key and cavities can often be prevented by taking certain preventative steps. It’s essential to not only take your child to a qualified pediatric dentist in Anaheim like ours at Jungle Dental for regular cleanings and checkups, but also to follow the guidance of your dental professionals about good oral hygiene practices. There are things you can do at home to help prevent your children from developing tooth decay and cavities. When you come for an appointment our dentist and hygienist will teach you and your children about cavity prevention and proper oral hygiene techniques. When you bring your children to our practice, our dedicated dentist along with the hygienist will educate you on not only what you should do, but also what you should avoid in order to help your children maintain healthy mouths. From the moment you meet our dentist and the rest of our team, you’ll realize that we have a genuine concern for your child’s well-being. Our expert orthodontist and the rest of our dedicated team of professionals are passionate about providing your children with the excellent dental care they deserve.
