Adults understand the importance of good dental health, but, unfortunately, it is not so common for children to understand.

It is important to get your children in the habit of practicing proper dental hygiene. Even if they do not understand the importance, forming those good habits early will stick with them as they get older.

Poor dental habits contribute to cavities and decay as children get older. The moment your child’s teeth come in you need to start brushing them. Many parents are unaware that they need to do this, but it is important to know.

To make sure your children’s teeth are healthy, the first visit to the dentist should be about 6 months after their first tooth comes in.
