01 Nov Early childhood Caries
Early childhood caries (ECC) is one of the most common childhood diseases. Likely, it is the most easily prevented. Children should begin seeing the dentist within six months of the eruption of their first tooth. At these first visits, parents are instructed on how to properly care for their child’s teeth. Baby teeth should be cleaned from the time they erupt with a small soft toothbrush or cloth. Parents will also gain vital information in these first visits concerning diet and sugar consumption. Good hygiene habits can help your child keep their teeth for a lifetime.
