Proper Dental Care For Your Children

By Emily Nelson

Too bad, isn’t it, that there is no real tooth fairy who, like the equally illusionary tinker bell, could dart from one bedroom to the next, telling many a parent, about the dire need for their kids to have proper dental health care? Many kids, as young as 3 years old have appeared at the dental clinic with gums even rotting. Imagine how it must have felt for a poor little girl who underwent sweetened stomach problems all because she could not chew her food and had to swallow it whole.

Forty years have seen this clinic handling situations like these. These days, we are bombarded by information that teeth are not indestructible from educational fliers, films, TV programs and other forms of medium, but it is just sad that this clinic’s patient list is brimming with young patients that do not know how important a toothbrush is. In building strong teeth, good nutrition is important but then keeping it clean is seen to be much valuable.

Apart from brushing, this also stresses the need for flossing in order to clean the spaces between teeth were bacteria multiply merrily. Dentists state that moms can easily learn how this is done and then provide the needed leverage to do a thorough cleaning job in the teeth of their kids. Caramels are murder on a child’s teeth. Raisins are dangerous too. The difference between good and bad teeth can be determined by hygiene better than nutritious food.

Some financial help toward the clinic’s preschool program has recently been initiated by the children’s benefit league. Thanks to this civic organization, there is a pool not just of funds but also of toothbrushes. Generously, local hygienists, and dentists, specialists in their field, were able to donate fluoride, instruments and free dental hygiene time to kids for treatment which is not given by dental clinic.

A specialized program sponsored is the orthodontic clinic for children with the most need. A person that would think everyone within hollering distance of the sponsoring would be striking pearly whites with all these help pouring in. But it is not like this, most of the time. This is based strictly on most concerns of parents. For most elementary school students, the nurse in his school would send a referral note in Spanish or English stating that they are encouraging a visit to the dentist for the child.

This visit is primarily intended to allay any fears in the child. Located at the ground floor of a local medical center, the surroundings are very attractive for any child. He learns what an X ray machine is and how it operates. He meets the dentists and discovers that, gee whiz, they’re not so frightening after all. These dentists are all duly accredited even as they are youngish, sport mustaches and the longer hair styles. Sporting long hairstyles and sometimes a mustache, it is good to know that each of them are duly accredited. Nice casual outfits are what they wear and not boring white coats. They impress the children as being regular guys.

The spokesman of the clinic shares that dentists are so great with the kids. Dentists are seasoned in talking kids out of crying but then crying kids are a rarity here. Dentists become the kids’ pals with these little ones becoming more and more confident following a session. Some would even send them notes and letters even after their sessions.
