Good Dental Habits Should Start Early - Blog - Good Dental Habits Should Start EarlyMost residents of Toms River know dental health is important to our overall health as adults, but what about our children?

Oral health is also very important in children too and starting healthy habits at an early age can make all the difference!

Poor dental habits can contribute to cavities and other tooth decay as children age.

As soon as a child’s teeth come in, they should be care for and brushed. Additionally, flossing should also be started once teeth arrive and are touching each other. Most parents are unaware of this and over 60% do not start this early.

Children should visit the dentist no later than their third birthday.
