Dentistry Talk: Child Dental Care and How to Help Develop Good Habits
California is the state with the largest economy, producing the highest gross state product in the U.S. as of 2014. It is normal, then, that residents in many of its communities, such as Ladera Ranch, are living modern lifestyles. However, while an improved standard of life is always a good thing, it can also come with habits harmful to the teeth. Items such as junk food, fast food, sodas, energy drinks, coffee, and pastries contain acids and sweets that can pound on the teeth every day. When it comes to sugary food, children are more vulnerable. Adults are more able to control their consumption and pay more attention to dental care, but most kids tend to not limit their intake of sweets. Children thus need a level of dental care that is different from adults.
