Dental Care For Tiny Teeth

A youngster's tiny teeth will inevitably fall out in later years as their permanent teeth grow in. But for many kids, particularly those from low-income households, cavities and poor oral health lead to complicated dental problems long before they even leave their cribs.

Fortunately the future may be brighter for our disadvantaged toddlers due to a $293,000 grant for the National Institutes of Health Programs. The funds have been allocated to incorporate tooth decay prevention as part of a child's regular checkup with the doctor, and this could be a giant step toward improving infants' and toddlers' dental health for children in the Medicaid program.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend children visit the dentist for the first time by age 1, but for so many kids that is simply not a reality. If you have young toddlers, please be sure they see a dentist regularly and care for their tiny teeth.
