Every month, Dr. Irondi sees children and teenagers with low self-esteem, dental anxiety, and difficulty following a healthy diet because of oral health issues. Healthy teeth, gums, and lips significantly impact the cognitive development of people under 18, leading to higher school attendance rates, academic performance, and more fulfilling social experiences.
According to research from News Medical, children between two and 11 years old are more likely to develop cavities than adults. Around 42% of American children in these age brackets form cavities because of poorly supervised oral hygiene practices, sugary drinks, and junk food consumption. Kids also love adventure and are more prone to having chipped and cracked teeth from running accidents, doing tricks on a skateboard, or engaging in various behaviors people grow out of as adults.
Most experts recommend that children visit the dentist twice a year to eliminate preventable conditions. For example, many people develop night grinding, vitamin deficiencies, and oral damage from acid reflux as children. In addition, psychosocial behaviors like excessive shyness around strangers, social withdrawal, and feeling unattractive also take root in people as kids from poor oral health.
Regularly visiting KAM Dental in Baytown for dental care helps your child establish healthy oral hygiene habits and a brighter, more confident smile.
