October is National Dental Hygiene Month. We celebrate all the work our dental hygienists do for our teeth and also raise awareness of strong oral health.
Good oral health is for everyone, too, whether you’re a child, a teenager, a millennial, middle-aged or in your golden years. There is no time in your life when you can be a “slacker” about your teeth.
So, for this month, in honor of National Dental Hygiene Month, we want to start at the beginning when the baby teeth are still in place. Their tiny teeth need proper care, too.
According to The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Dental Care guidelines for your infant to two year-old should include the following:
Pediatric dental care is crucial for that infant to two-year-old. Don’t make the mistake that baby teeth are temporary and therefore do not need to be cared for. In fact, baby teeth and dental hygiene early on may have an impact on oral health throughout their lives.
Your first visit at EJL Dental is a comprehensive one for the parents as we focus on getting to know your child and discussing theirdental care. Our doctor checks your child’s teeth placement and health. We also answer any questions you may have and do all we can to ensure a positive experience. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact EJL Dental at (301) 881-6170 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
