Brea, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/04/2014 -- In line with the National Children’s Dental Health Month, the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) reminds all parents to take care of their children’s teeth. Experts advise parents to visit their dentist during the first year of their child’s life to promote good dental health.

AGD spokesperson, Kay Jordan, says, “During a child's first dental visit, the dentist can carefully examine the development of the child's mouth. Many parents are surprised to learn that their little ones can develop tooth decay, or cavities, as soon as their teeth appear."

Dr. Jordan added, "A visit to the dentist doesn't just benefit the child. Parents can pick up tips about properly caring for their child's teeth. Talk to your dentist to learn how to soothe teething irritations, stop prolonged pacifier- and finger-sucking, modify your child's diet to reduce cavity-causing sugars, and more."
