Healthy Baby Teeth For Trinity Toddlers

Posted on March 29, 2013

General Dentistry And Healthy Teeth In Trinity

Though we don’t often think about it, Trinity children as young as 9 or 10 months of age can be infected with cavity producing bacteria, which causes cavities and tooth decay. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that almost 20% of children 2-5 have untreated cavities, and the percentage rises in children over 6.

Tooth decay, if left undetected or untreated in Trinity toddlers and children can result in altered eating habits, delayed speech development, and create an unhealthy environment for permanent tooth development. Healthy baby teeth lead to healthier permanent teeth later in life.

Mothers in the Trinity area who practice preventive dental and oral care during prenatal and postnatal periods can better protect her child from cavities. Trinity parents and care providers should not prop a bottle for their baby in a crib or car seat, avoiding nighttime bottle or breast feeding, and clean their child’s teeth with a cloth or soft baby toothbrush as soon as they erupt. It is also recommended that Trinity parents check regularly for chalky white or brown spots which could indicate the beginning of decay.

Trinity cosmetic dentistry professionals and pediatric dentists in the 34685 zip code area advise taking your child to his first dental appointment six months after the first tooth appears, or around his first birthday to begin discussing fluoride prescriptions and other preventive care issues.
