Good dental hygiene helps keep children happier

Teach children about the damage that sugar, bacteria, tobacco and alcohol emergency dental services can do to their gums and teeth. Give kids low-sugar snacks like celery and carrots. Parents of babies should prevent problems that can develop before a child gets permanent teeth. Thumb sucking can distort a child’s teeth. Some parents cause cavities when they put babies to bed with bottles of milk, soda or fruit juice. Many parents protect their babies by changing over to cups for drinking by the first birthday. Don’t ignore a child’s tooth or gum pain or bleeding gums.
