Establishing good eating habits in early childhood will help prevent health problems, including oral health issues, later on in life. Nutritious foods provide the right amount of vitamins and minerals to help maintain the health of the teeth and gums. Healthy foods also boost the immune system and help ward off infection, decay and disease. Proper eating habits will contribute to oral health that will last a lifetime. Whether your child is a toddler or an adolescent, you can take steps to encourage smart eating habits.
Early childhood tooth decay and caries (cavities) are among the most common health problems facing American infants, children and adolescents. Ingestion of sugary or acidic foods and beverages, and the prolonged contact of these substances with the teeth, contributes to the development of cavities and the prevalence of tooth decay. Oral health issues related to a poor diet are preventable. Nutritious conscious parents who limit or eliminate certain high sugar content foods and beverages from their children’s diets can help prevent cavities for their children. Children who are at a high risk for tooth decay should restrict their liquid intake to milk or water.
Parents should be conscious of alternatives for sugar laden drinks. Children active in sports should limit their intake of sugary sports drinks. We recommend the use of electrolyte enhanced water in place of such beverages.
Aside from contributing to oral health, a nutritious diet helps prevent other health issues. Increased and frequent consumption of sugary foods and beverages is linked with childhood obesity.
Five Strategies to Encourage Healthy Eating Habits:
They were so friendly and my daughter loved them! They made sure I understood everything before doing any work. I really felt like they loved my girl and wanted to make her comfortable. I would recommend them to everyone!- Heather H.
Love Burg!! The dentists are fantastic, able to explain exactly what is needed and why. And they talk to my boys, instead of only to me; they include then kids in the decisions. Very patient and friendly. Love the front desk staff, too.- Jessica K.
What a great experience! My son has been terrified of going to the dentist. The staff was so kind and engaging that he didn’t even bat an eye. They were able to get more done with no tears then the past three dental offices we went to.- Sarah P.
We love Burg Children’s Dentistry! The staff is so kind and patient and they are so gentle with the kids. My daughter is four and loves going to the dentist because they make it so fun and comfortable. I’m grateful we live close to such a great dental office!- Claire M.
I love this place, but what is more important is that my daughter loves this place. She looks forward to going to the dentist. I did not grow up with the same experience. I’m confident that she is being taken care of on every visit.- Sara R.
Amazing staff. From the receptionist to the doctor himself. Very patient with my fifteen month old who wouldn’t lay down to me filling out my paperwork with a newborn in tow. Our family will be returning for sure!- Jon & Melissa L.
The staff is so great with my kids. On the way for his visit he says, “I LOVE going to the dentist!” Which is funny considering how much I dread it! Dr Nielsen is so nice and takes the time to explain everything he sees.- Christina T.
The folks at Burg Children’s Dentistry are excellent! Our four year old daughter loves going there and they have set her up to enjoy going to the dentist for years to come! I have recommended them to friends already! Thanks for a great job guys!- Watt C.
