The best way to prevent expensive and often painful dental procedures is a good oral health routine at home. Brushing your teeth at least three times a day, flossing daily and using mouthwash can help prevent decay and gum disease long before they set in.
Healthy Habits Start Young
Young children should be instructed on how to properly brush their teeth, and should be monitored when doing so. Even earlier, parents should begin brushing their child’s teeth as soon as the first tooth emerges from the gum line. At ages six and 12, molars will erupt in the back of the mouth. It it usually recommended to have sealants placed over the permanent molars to help prevent tooth decay. Children should regularly visit Dr. Russell Marchese, Jr. for a periodic exam and teeth cleaning in Batavia, NY.
