February is the American Dental Association’s sponsored National Children’s Dental Health Month.

As a parent, you can do a lot to ensure your child has a beautiful smile and enjoys a lifetime of great dental health. Here are a few facts and tips from Dental Associates of Connecticut to help you understand the importance of early dental care for your child.

  • Your new baby should have a dental check up right around his or her first birthday.
  • Tooth decay can result from frequent and prolonged exposure of a baby’s teeth to liquids, such as fruit juice, milk or formula, which all contain sugar.
  • About 25 percent of our nation’s children have nearly 80 percent of the cavities
  • Approximately 51,679,100 million school hours were missed annually by school-aged children due to a dental problem or visit, with 117 hours missed per 100 children.
  • Fluoride not only helps prevent tooth decay, it cures beginning cavities.
  • On the whole, American children enjoy the best oral health in the world. For example, half of U.S. school children have never had a cavity.
