Children’s Dental Health Month

Can you remember your child’s last visit to the dentist’s office? If you need help remembering that far back, it has most likely been too long. Our oral health can affect our ability to eat, speak, smile, and show emotions. It can also affect our self-esteem, school performance, and attendance at work or school. Oral hygiene can affect both adults and children. Please take this as a reminder to get your kids in for their subsequent check-ups at the dentist regularly. 

Oral hygiene can prevent our children from developing unhealthy habits to becoming affected and prone to gum diseases such as gingivitis, cavities, and dental plaque. Did you know that more than half of children aged 6 to 8 had a cavity in at least one of their baby teeth? Implementing a healthy oral regimen in the morning and before bedtime at a young age can dramatically improve oral dental health. As February is National Children’s Dental Health month, NVIH supports and sheds awareness of this impactful topic.
