Worlwide, dental problems, expecially dental caries and periodontal disease, represent an important public health issue. In Romania, dental problems affects more than 80% of the people. Moreover, statistics show that only 2% of the Romanian parents take their children to the dentist until they are 7 years old.
In order to prevent these problems, dental care protection must begin from childhood, from the very first tooth. The foundation for healthy permanent teeth in children and teenagers is laid during the first years of life. Poor diet, poor habits of food intake and inadequate tooth brushing habits during the first 2 years of life have been shown in several studies to be related to tooth decay in children. The development of caries in primary teeth further increases the risk of developing caries in permanent teeth.
Therefore, it is essential to establish a proper oral hygiene routine early in life to help ensure the development of strong and healthy teeth. Parents, as consistent role models, are key for setting a daily routine and to making their children understand the importance of oral hygiene.
Tooth brushing should be presented as a habit and an integral part of the daily hygiene routine. Children are very sensitive to social stimulus such as praise and affection, and learn best by imitating their parents. Physiological and mental development affects the oral care of children.
Visits to the dentist should always be a priority in order to monitor the early development of healthy teeth and prevent future problems.
