February is National Dental Health Month
(Newswire.net—February 18, 2013) Key Largo, FL-- Dental care for children at an early age prevents cavities and tooth decay that becomes problematic throughout one’s life. It is a lifestyle issue that becomes ingrained in one’s daily routine and an investment in one’s future. Now, with February being officially declared as the National Children’s Dental Health Month, there is a dedicated effort for family participation in an area of life that is so important.
Many family dentists make this a fun outing where kids learn good dental hygiene and proper brushing procedures and habits through puppets and cartoons that keep the kids’ attention. Entertainment through various mediums like shows and music are integral components of keeping their attention and remembering these important facts.
In addition to preventing future dental problems, an early exposure to a good daily dental plan removes the fear of dental visits and that dreaded view of a dentist. Commercial advertisements of food and drinks that are tasty and sweet are a problem for many kids today that see these television ads that contribute to a very unhealthy lifestyle.
The earlier that kids can identify with the difference between good hygiene and proper dental care versus quick eating habits that satiate the sugar cravings, the better they can ward off the developmental problems going forward. This educational yet fun learning process becomes a life science and can be the key to excellent dental preventive care and over all health maintenance.
Kids learn in very interesting ways and with this Dental Health Month focus, they come home with tips and ideas that they also share and impact their parents and older people in the household as a result of their impressionable curiosity. Habits like flossing early and not leaving a “sippy” cup with sweet drinks or even milk for that matter, before going to bed are things that are pointed out or the parents and kids alike.
With good dental practices at home, kids will also understand that their visits to the dentist actually can become fun and remove the unpleasant situations that are wrought with fear and associations of painful visits at the dentist.
