In light of recent studies showing that the prevalence of tooth decay among Canadian children is rising now more than ever, Dr. Jeffrey Williams, children’s and restorative dentist in Cranbrook, BC is encouraging parents to be more proactive about the oral health of their kids. In Canada, oral decay is the most widespread chronic disease in children, but ironically, is completely preventable with proper cleaning and maintenance habits.

“Oral decay is a condition that kids simply don’t have to suffer with if they are able to incorporate proper dental habits in their everyday life with the help of their parents,” said Dr. Jeffrey Williams. “Optimal dental health is produced in the home, and our goal is to help educate parents and children in our office about how they can keep their smile in the best state.”

The rise of oral decay in Canadian children is also increasing the instances of children needing hospitalization or general anesthesia due to serious infections that have been caused by untreated oral decay. Dr. Williams emphasizes the vital importance of addressing the root of the problem before it advances to critical stages.

According to Dr. Williams and many other oral health studies, achieving great oral health comes down to three key elements in the home: a well-rounded diet, brushing twice daily, and regular flossing. Diets that are high in processed foods and sugar are likely to produce more oral decay, especially in children. Brushing twice daily as well as flossing several times per week, if not every day, is also key in preventing the buildup of bacteria on the teeth as well as preventing chronically inflamed gums, also known as gingivitis.

Visiting the dentist every six months can ensure that any developing oral decay can be treated in the earliest stages, saving patients hundreds or even thousands of dollars in the long run by preventing the need for more extensive treatment.

“We encourage the parents of all of our young patients to be hands-on with their kid’s oral care,” said Dr. Williams. “Parent’s shouldn’t be afraid to brush their children’s teeth for them even into their later years to ensure that it’s happening regularly and correctly. Making dental care at home fun for kids is also helpful in keeping their teeth in the best condition.”

In addition to treating children, Dr. Williams is also a highly trained cosmetic dentist in Cranbrook, BC. He offers tooth colored fillings, teeth whitening, and veneers to help patients improve their existing smile. For patients who have experienced permanent tooth loss, Dr. Williams is a certified dental implants dentist in Cranbrook, BC.
