February is the completion of National Dental Children's Health Month, emphasizing the need for parents and caregivers to take early action to ensure the health of their children's teeth. The Harford County Department of Health reminds the public that tooth decay is the most common chronic illness in children. Each year, more than 51 million school hours are lost due to related problems. Fortunately, with good oral health care habits, tooth decay can be prevented.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 18 percent of children ages of two to four have experienced tooth decay, and almost one in six do not treat dental caries. By age 17, more than seven percent of children have lost at least one permanent tooth due to decay. 31 percent of kindergarten and third grade, children have tooth decay that, if left untreated, causes pain and infections that can cause problems with eating, talking, playing, and learning.

CDC shows some things you can do to ensure good oral health for your child:

• Encourage your children to eat regular nutritious meals and avoid frequent meals and snacks.

• The use of toothpaste with fluoride. If your child is under 7 years old, just a small amount on the brush.

• If drinking water is not fluoridated, talk to the dentist or doctor about the best way to protect your child's teeth.

• Talk to your dentist about dental sealants. Protect your teeth against cavities.

• If you are pregnant, prenatal care and eat a healthy diet. The diet should include folic acid to prevent birth defects of the brain and spinal cord and possibly the cleft lip/cleft palate.
"Taking care of your child's teeth, including baby teeth, from the start is the key to good oral health. A child should visit the dentist when his or her first tooth appears, or for his first birthday.” says the spokesperson from Field House Dental Practice.

“We will urge parents and caregivers on the importance of serving as role models and teaching their children good oral (dental) health habits such as brushing and flossing, eating nutritious foods and make regular visits to the dentist. Providing dental services also improves overall child health and self-esteem, avoids chronic health problems, and reduces school absenteeism rates resulting in higher academic achievement."
