    CHILDREN'S DENTAL HEALTH MONTH | TATE FAMILY DENTISTRY BLOG

    Last updated 5 months ago

    Despite the fact that it’s almost entirely preventable, tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in children. More than 40 percent of children ages 2 to 11 have had a cavity in their primary (baby) teeth, and more than two-thirds of 16- to 19-year-olds have had a cavity in their permanent teeth. Although overall rates of tooth decay have decreased over the past four decades, decay has actually increased in preschool age children in recent years.

     

    The good news is there are safe and effective preventive measures that can protect teeth. Good oral hygiene practices such as thorough brushing with a fluoride toothpaste can help keep children from getting cavities. In addition, dental sealants and community water fluoridation are two other strategies that can help prevent tooth decay.

    Our Tooth Brushing Teddy Bears were very mischievous.  During the Christmas break they were caught jumping on the couch in Dr Tate's office and having a pillow fight.  We aren't sure where Mama Bear was at the time.  Kids, these mischievous bears would sure like a good home.  Get mom or dad to schedule you for your next cleaning for a chance to become their family.
