Dental care is one of the most essential aspects of health and hygiene. Children should be made to realise its importance at an early age. Proper oral hygiene can definitely decrease the frequency of a child’s visit to the dentist. According to WebMed, one of four pre-school children shows signs of tooth decay. Half of all children between ages 12 and 15 have cavities. Caryn Solie, RDH, president of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, tells WebMD, “Dental care should begin as soon as a child’s first tooth appears, usually around six months.”
But before we attempt to understand the essentials of oral hygiene, it is necessary to bust a few myths and get the facts right about dental care. After reading this ClipBook, you will understand why many of the facts we were taught to believe in about scaling, eating sugar, brushing and cavity are actually untrue. By familiarising ourselves with the right facts, we can make sure that we teach the right things about oral care to our children.
