Information about pediatric dentists in South Carolina
Children are very active, and sometimes they can be injured. To protect your child's teeth from trauma, use the following guidelines:
Always use child seats and seat belts while traveling in the car.
Use special belts in wheelchairs or carts.
Protect children at home, when your baby is learning to walk. For example, make sure that your child does not have access to the stairs.
Teach your child to avoid impact with objects or other children in the playground.
Purchase child?s moth guards for contact sports such as hockey, boxing, football and wrestling. Mouth guards protect the teeth from serious injury, and also help to absorb the impact force to the head, jaw, or neck. Pedodontists in South Carolina may recommend the right mouth guard for your child.
