Prevention is the Key to Good Oral Healthcare

Saturday, May. 18th 2024 7:27 AM

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 13% of children and teens have untreated cavities. Not having cavities treated by a dental professional can lead to more serious dental problems. Children with poor oral health are nearly three times more likely to miss school due to needing severe or emergency dental treatment. That accounts for almost one-fourth of missed school time for dental needs. The cost of dental care becomes more of an issue as simple filling turns into more significant, more costly dental care issues.

Why do some parents postpone dental care for their children?

There could be various reasons why parents postpone dental care for their children. One of the most common reasons is the fear of their child having a negative experience or feeling anxious during the dental visit. Additionally, some parents may not have dental insurance or may not be able to afford the cost of dental care. Others may forget or not prioritize dental appointments, especially if their child is not experiencing any pain or discomfort. However, it’s important to remember that regular dental checkups can prevent more serious dental issues from arising and can promote good oral health habits in children from a young age.
