As per the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS), 57 percent of kids aged between 6 and 11 and 59 percent of children aged between 12 and 19 have dealt with cavities. In such a scenario, it is highly necessary to apprise children about the importance of brushing and flossing and the need to develop it as a habit.
But how to develop a good oral hygiene routine in children since most of the time the parents themselves are unaware as to what constitutes good oral hygiene. And even if they know, children often fail to fully grasp the importance of brushing and hence whatever advice you give would fall on deaf ears. Thats where a childrens dentist comes to the aid. Being a specialist, the dentist can help the child understand the need for ensuring a good oral hygiene routine and even demonstrate the right technique for ensuring oral health. However, when selecting a childrens dentist Milton or anywhere else, it is important to choose a dentist who is gentle and patient with kids, otherwise, the children would feel intimidated.
