Has your child seen a dentist yet? Parents don’t know enough about dental care as they should.
A recent study of nearly 500 parents with children younger than 12 was conducted to see how much they knew about dentistry. The results showed that about half of the parents didn’t take their children to visit the dentist on a regular basis.
There were 20 percent of the parents that incorrectly thought that they only had to take their children to the dentist when their teeth appeared. Also, only half of fathers and 63 percent of mothers made sure their children regularly brushed their teeth.
Currently, 30 percent of all children suffer from tooth decay.
Wearing braces can boost your self-confidence, even while you are wearing them. It is encouraging to know that your teeth are getting straighter while you have braces. Results can be seen in a matter of weeks or months. Before getting braces, some people may smile with their mouth closed because they are self-conscious about their teeth.
Transparent braces, whether ceramic or sapphire, require extra careful oral hygiene practices. They are also thicker than metal braces. The main advantage is that they look aesthetic since they are nearly invisible on patient’s teeth. Sapphire braces are recognized as the most transparent of all aesthetic braces systems.
