Quality dental care is essential for a child’s well-being. The research supports our view: Cavities are the single most common chronic disease among children. Untreated decay affects 19.5% of 2- to 5-year-olds and 22.9% of 6- to 19-year-olds. Dental disease can affect a child’s life, from eating and sleeping to school performance and self-esteem. That’s why it’s so important for children to see a dentist.
To give your child a lifetime of smiles, start early! Children should be seen by age 1 or when their first tooth comes in. And, fortunately for you, most Delta Dental plans cover the important services your child needs from a dentist:
• Fluoride treatments
Review your benefits carefully to see what services your plan covers. Here’s to your little one’s healthy, growing grin!
