Teach your children to say “no” to tobacco:
• Set a good example! Don’t smoke or quit smoking. This benefits the entire family.
• Explain to your children how smoking damages the mouth, throat, and lungs. It contributes to high blood pressure, causes bad breath, stains the teeth and destroys gum tissue. Smoking is a factor in periodontal disease.
Instill in your children the importance of regular dental exams:
• Dr. Bohrod will instruct your children on proper dental care.
• Regular hygiene visits lead to prevention which cuts all dental costs. It also leads to early detection of improper alignment of teeth and decay and is an opportunity to reinforce good eating habits.
