June is men’s health month in the US. This month is dedicated to raising awareness about common oral and overall health concerns that affect men, especially those that are often overlooked. When it comes to dental care, research indicates that men are much less likely to keep up with their regular oral hygiene routines and preventive dental checkups. This puts them at increased risk for oral health issues that can negatively impact every aspect of their day to day life from the simplest smile to eating a healthy diet.

Infant tooth decay is better known as “baby bottle tooth decay.” This derives from the fact that infant teeth tend to deteriorate from the contents of their bottle if oral hygiene isn’t cared for. Just because baby teeth aren’t permanent, doesn’t mean that they are any less important. Infant teeth still need attentive care because they are simply the placeholders to your child’s adult teeth. This is an important job that our family dentist in Port Orange understands completely. Maintaining healthy baby teeth help to ensure proper development in their speech, nutrition, and even their precious smiles. Dr. Sean Bannan, D.D.S. and Dr. I. Warren Hersch both are excited to help new (and returning) parents provide the best dental health care for the newest members of our patient’s families.
