How to Prevent Tooth Decay in Children

Posted by

We have recently changed our night time routine.
Gone are the days where we simply lay LB down after his night time milk and him falling to sleep. Now he has joined the rest of the family at the sink brushing his teeth!

Over a year ago I did one of my first reviews of a product called The Rockabilly Kids and BB still uses this great product and now LB has started his journey to dental hygene heaven!

My dental hygene as a kid was aweful and has improved dramatically as I became an adult and I don’t want either kids to follow in my flossless footsteps.

I was recently sent this infograph created by Portman Healthcare and I thought it was great and wanted to to share it with you.

Twenty seven percent of five-year-olds in the UK suffer from tooth decay – but fewer than ten percent of those children have been treated for this. It is important for your children to get into good habits early when it comes to their oral health. Dental problems can seriously affect them for the rest of their life, leading to pain, discomfort, and years of expensive medical procedures. With dental care free on the NHS until the age of 18, there really is no reason for a child’s teeth to be neglected.

Like so many aspects of a child’s development, the early stages are vital. It is better to prevent tooth decay than to cure it, and the sooner you set things in place, the quicker everything will become part of their daily routine.

So, get your child brushing! They’ll definitely thank you later when they have all their teeth in later life!
