The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that “tooth decay…affects children in the United States more than any other chronic infectious disease. Untreated tooth decay causes pain and infections that may lead to problems; such as eating, speaking, playing, and learning.”
Clearly, it is important to promote the education of good oral hygiene, especially to the malleable minds of young ones. Dr. Alexander Ash, a cosmetic and general dentist in Studio City, CA., understands this importance of providing the tools and resources necessary to ensure that children grow up and do not have to endure the pain and expenses of fillings, root canals, and other dental procedures that are a direct result of poor oral health and hygiene.
Dr. Alexander Ash and his Studio City dental office have taken steps in the direction of the protection of children’s oral health. Studio Dental Care made a trip to the Boys and Girls Club for a health outreach. While there, Dr. Alexander Ash handed out a package tailored to children that contained a child-designed toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and coupons for dental treatment and examinations for free. The purpose of this health campaign and dental outreach in Studio City was to inspire and encourage children to get on board with their oral health and realize that oral hygiene is not a chore, but rather it is a necessity for their future.
There are several steps that parents who are concerned about their children’s oral health can take, with a main one being to speak to their child’s dentist about dental sealants, which are thin coatings on the teeth that protect against decay. Dr. Ash encourages patients to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for more information.
Studio Dental Care welcomes new patients to its Studio City, CA location and provides free initial consultations. Call the office today for more information.
