Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 27, 2016
Parents of children are advised to make dental health a priority in order to avoid costly and damaging oral complications in the future, according to an article published July 8 on The St. Louis American. Dr. Farzad Feiz, lead dentist at the Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care, notes that making routine dental visits and instilling excellent oral hygiene in young children effectively prevents serious dental complications from occurring in the future. Dr. Farzad Feiz goes on to outline the numerous ways parents can promote dental health and good oral hygiene habits in small children, including:
Increasing brushing time- The Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care note that many individuals usually spend less than one minute brushing their teeth. By increasing brushing time to the recommended two minute mark, parents provide an effective example of excellent oral hygiene habits that are more likely to last throughout a child’s life. In addition, Dr. Feiz notes that it’s never too early to start thinking about a child’s dental health.
Starting children young- The clinic also advises that children of any age should be taken for dental check-ups before any pain or discomfort become a problem. Oftentimes, by the time a child is experiencing pain, more invasive treatment procedures, such as tooth extractions, have to be performed and it becomes far less likely for heavily decayed baby teeth to be salvaged. Dr. Feiz goes on to note that, despite general concerns, it is perfectly safe for a child of any age to undergo a dental procedure in order to effectively treat underlying dental problems.
Healthy eating habits- Good dental health not only relies on excellent oral hygiene habits, it also depends on the food that gets consumed, Dr. Feiz explains. Constantly consuming unhealthy and sugary foods and drinks can do serious damage to a patient’s teeth and gums. The dental group notes that in order to prevent tooth decay, parents with young children are recommended to cut back on sweets and are also recommended to create the habit of brushing and flossing immediately after any sugary snacks are consumed.
