If there is anything you should be on board with and prepared for in life, it’s the oral health of your children, and it is something that you will keep an eye on for 16 plus years. You won’t be able to do this on your own either, so you’ll need to find a dentist soon after your kid’s are born to help you on your way. Diet is essential to the growth of teeth, as can be the avoidance of tooth decay; good food will help build up the level of the immune system and keep the body and mouth strong and healthy. Trying to ‘advise’ your kids on the dangers of eating too much sugar from chocolates and other sweets though may be hard, especially when they start to skip off to school, but once your have nursed them through teething and their secondary teeth, you can have the teeth covered with dental sealants, which will fight of the threat of tooth decay for 5-10 years: show your children how to clean their teeth correctly as well- an essential element in their oral growth. One other important factor is being able to finance the treatments your children will need, especially if their teeth need straightening, so hammer out a plan with your dentist from the start.
