Preventive dentistry is a branch of dentistry that emphasizes the importance of ongoing hygiene procedures and daily practices to prevent oral health issues. Here at the Syracuse office of kid's dentist Dr. Karen Lawitts, we offer a full range of dental services to their patients. Here are five reasons why dental health for children is so important:

1. Keep Your Child's Smile Healthy: Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits can keep your children's smile healthy for years to come. To accomplish this, take them to the dentist every six months for professional teeth cleanings and oral examinations.

2. Prevent Dental Diseases: During your child's checkup, the dentist will check for cavities and examine your child's mouth for signs of gum disease and other health problems, thus preventing further complications down the road.

3. Maintain Your Child's Overall Health: You may be risking your children's health if you don't take them to the dentist regularly. After all, research shows that poor dental care can greatly affect the body's general health. Consequently, good dental hygiene and oral health reduce the risks of serious health issues such as heart attack, pneumonia, stroke, and cardiovascular disease.

4. Prevent Teeth From Decaying: Dental plaque is a fact of life—everybody gets it. Plaque is a sticky, colorless biofilm that builds upon our teeth and contains bacteria. It's commonly found between the teeth, on the front of teeth, on chewing surfaces, behind teeth, and along the gumline. The bacteria in plaque causes dental decay and gum disease if it is not removed regularly through flossing, brushing, and professional teeth cleanings.

5. Prevent Premature Tooth Loss: Tooth loss is a process in which a tooth becomes loose and falls out. Some common causes of tooth loss include bad dental hygiene, illnesses, malnutrition, tobacco use, or injury to the teeth. Preventing tooth loss requires a long-term commitment to smart, healthy dental choices. Good oral hygiene and regular visits to your kid's dentist in Syracuse, NY, can help your children keep their teeth healthy as they grow older.
