Topics include:• how thumb sucking and pacifiers affect teeth• how to brush your young children’s teeth• how to calm a child who is afraid of the dentist• how to help special needs children get proper dental care • how medical problems affect teeth• how fluoride rinses and dental sealants work• how a root canal is done• how to make the orthodontia decision

This book will help parents help children develop good dental habits for a lifetime of healthy teeth—from baby’s first tooth to the young adult’s shining smile.

Editorial Reviews

Although the book has been developed for the American parent... it is relevant to parents within the UK. This is indeed a 'complete' guide.
