Progress in the Fight Against Dental Decay

As dental or health care professional who cares for children, you encourage early dental visits, connect children with a dental home, and work to promote tooth-healthy behaviors at home. But are your efforts working? A new study released by the Centers for Disease Control suggests that progress is being made, but there's still a long way to go.

Los padres y personas que cuidan a los niños pueden hacer mucho para mantener saludables los dientes del niño en su casa.

La verdad es que una buena higiene oral comienza allí cepillándose dos veces por día durante dos minutos cada vez y usando el hilo dental una vez por día. Una buena atención dental combinada con visitas periódicas al dentista puede ser muy útil para prevenir problemas.

Cada etapa de la niñez incluye sus propias recomendaciones para la atención dental.

There's a lot that parents and caregivers can do to keep a child's teeth healthy at home.

In fact, good oral health starts there by brushing twice a day for two minutes each time, and flossing once a day. Good tooth care combined with regular visits to the dentist can be very helpful in preventing problems.

Every stage of childhood has its own set of recommendations for tooth care.

TeethFirst! has put together a handy guide for parents and caregivers to follow so they will know how to care for a child's teeth starting from birth to over age 8.

¿Sabía usted que a pesar de que todavía no puede verlos, los dientes de un bebé están casi totalmente formados en el momento de nacer? ¡Incluso los dientes permanentes de un bebé comienzan a formarse al mismo tiempo! Esto quiere decir que a pesar de que no los pueda ver todavía, es muy importante alimentar a su niño con comidas saludables que ayudarán a que los dientes crezcan y sean fuertes.  Y a pesar de que su pequeño perderá los dientes de leche, sigue siendo importante cuidarlos igual que como cuidaría a los dientes adultos permanentes.

Did you know that even though you can't see them yet, a baby's teeth are almost completely formed at birth? Even a baby's permanent teeth are starting to form at the same time! This means that even though you might not be able to see them yet, it is very important to feed your child healthy foods that will help keep teeth growing strong.  And even though your young child will lose her baby teeth, it is still very important to take good care of them like you would care for her permanent adult teeth.
