Resources for Parents

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists have launched a site to help parents make decisions regarding the oral health of their children.

The AAPD site provides answers to questions like:

-what foods promote decay?

-should my child wear a mouthguard when playing sports?

-what should I do if a baby tooth gets knocked out?

-what should I do if a permanent tooth gets knocked out?

-what is decay?

-why is tartar a problem?

Particularly useful is their search engine that allows parents to find a pediatric dentist in their zip code. Every child should have a dental home by age 1.
