Starting the habit of regular dental visits when children are very young is a great way to help children understand that mouth care is very important. The major cause of tooth loss in children is cavities! Set a good example because children are likely to follow those who set positive and smart oral hygiene habits.


So how can YOU have smart oral hygiene habits?

Visiting the dentist at least once or twice a year greatly benefits not only your teeth, but also the rest of your body!


Did you know that symptoms in as many as 120 medical conditions (related and non-related to your teeth) can be detected by an examination of your mouth? Oral cancer alone hits an average of 100 people in the United States each day, while the leading cause of tooth decay in adults is periodontal (gum) disease. Early detection means early treatment – which could potentially save your life!


Whatever your age, it is important to take care of your mouth to prevent sickness and disease. Always remember to BRUSH, FLOSS, RINSE, REPEAT and make sure to visit your dentist at least once or twice a year to ensure healthy teeth and a healthy body.

Schedule your child’s dentist appointment at Cannon Park Dental at (843) 723-5346.
