Pediatric Dental Concerns

Pediatric dental concerns when addressed maintain the overall health of our young patients.

At an early age dentists identify the problems of our children.

Time and time again children are diagnosed with rampant tooth decay.

Tooth decay is a result of poor oral hygiene and excessive consumption of sweets.

Teach mothers the danger of excessive sugar intake and you better the condition of their children.

There are many ways to spoil a child, but using sugary treats causes disastrous results.

Proper nutrition requires eating a healthy diet.

It is not the goal of dentists to deprive children of sweet treats. They can be consumed in moderation.

With the best of intentions nutritious food is placed in our shopping carts.

Impulsive choices are what fill carts with sugary treats.

Instead of drinking soda pop daily, a punch can be concocted with the sweetener as agave nectar or stevia.

These sweeteners are not accumulated in the body like refined processed white sugar and high fructose corn syrup.

In the punch bottled water, and 100% juice would be much healthier than sodas.

Multiple cavities are the product of refined processed sugar.

We can all learn a lesson from the tooth decay process.

Dentists have a never ending job restoring teeth decayed from the over consumption of sugar.

Preventative dental care is designed to control the spread of dental caries and gum disease.

A basic home care disease program takes into consideration proper flossing and brushing of teeth.

It should also include good nutrition with a well balanced diet and reduction of sugary treats.

So true is the statement, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Stay forever mindful making prevention a priority for child development.

We live in a world where the food chain is genetically modified, very different nutritionally than the world three to four decades ago.

Keep your children free of the pain and suffering that comes because of tooth decay.

Instead of pain and suffering decide to choose health.

A proactive healthy approach to preventative dental care is key to your child’s well being.

Pediatric dental concerns are drastically reduced with adherence to sound nutrition.
