According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the prevalence of dental decay in the United States in children aged 2-5 has increased 15.2%

Factors that influence this rate include:
     1. Active dental caries in the primary caregiver
     2. Socioeconomic status 
     3. Dental IQ 
     4. Medical history
     5. Dietary habits

While some of these factors are more difficult than others to change, perhaps the first step is work on improving those eating habits.  Do you find your child drinking sugary drinks, fruit juice, or candy?  Do they brush and floss, or do they go for an extended amount of time with the sugar on their teeth?  In addition to stressing the importance of routines, cut back where you can on the sweets, join your child and brush your teeth along with them.  Be the best at whatever it is you aim to accomplish, and your child will follow in suit.

Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  Call us today, to schedule your child's hygiene appointment (425)228-1521

Julian:So much better than dunteres. I opted for dental implants because I could not stand the thought of having dunteres. Having to take dunteres out at night and put them in a bowl of water yuk. Implants are the better option.
