Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is one of the most important things you can do to keep yourself healthy. It is also an important part of keeping your baby healthy. Your gums and teeth need special attention when you are pregnant. Regular brushing and flossing, eating a balanced diet and visiting your dentist regularly, will help reduce dental problems that often accompany pregnancy, such as:
Caring for your baby’s smile begins the moment they are born. Healthy gums make way for healthy teeth. The Medi‑Cal Dental Program provides the following free or low-cost services for babies:
Keep your baby’s gums clean by gently wiping the gums with a washcloth every day. At about four to six months “teething” will begin as the baby teeth start to come in. Most babies have at least one tooth before they turn 1. By the time your child is 3, all 20 baby teeth should be in place.
When should you take your baby to their first dental visit?
You should make an appointment for your child’s first dental visit as soon as their first tooth comes in or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. Many kids get cavities as early as age 2. See the dentist as soon as possible to prevent problems.
As your baby becomes a toddler and more baby teeth come in, the dental visits may include teeth cleanings and fluoride varnish to protect their teeth from cavities. Baby teeth do fall out, but it is important to take good care of them until they do. Baby teeth help your child chew and speak properly. Losing a baby tooth too early due to poor care may cause problems with their permanent teeth, like growing in crooked. Remember, if your child has healthy baby teeth, chances are they will have healthy adult teeth, too.
The best way to keep your child’s gums and teeth healthy is to take him or her to regular dental visits every 6 months. These 2x per year visits are covered in your child’s Medi‑Cal dental plan. The Medi-Cal Dental Program provides the following free or low-cost services for kids:
Children start to lose their baby teeth as early as five years old. This is when their permanent teeth begin to grow in. You can protect your child’s back teeth (their molars) from cavities with sealants. Molar sealants are clear, protective coatings and are quick and painless. This is not the same as fluoride varnish, which is a pale-yellow gel. Sealants are a part of your child’s Medi‑Cal dental benefit and can protect your child’s back teeth for several years!
In the early teens, wisdom teeth usually come in – completing the set of permanent teeth. It is important to continue regular dental check-ups throughout the teen years to ensure good oral health well into adulthood. As a parent or legal guardian, you play an important role by setting good oral health habits and making sure your teen gets regular dental check-ups. The Medi‑Cal Dental Program provides the following free or low-cost services for teens:
During this time, the dentist may recommend new services like deeper cleanings or braces. To help keep your teen’s teeth both clean and strong, encourage healthy routines. The sugar in foods, like fast food and soda, can cause cavities and erode tooth enamel. Keeping a travel‑size toothbrush in a locker or backpack to brush after meals can also help reduce the risk of cavities and keep teeth bright (a boost to any teen’s self-esteem).
As we get older, taking care of our health becomes more and more important. Good oral health can prevent tooth loss, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and even respiratory illnesses. If you have any concerns about your teeth, schedule an appointment to see your dentist right away. Medi‑Cal will pay up to $1,800 in a year for covered dental services. You may qualify for no yearly limit if you are pregnant. Dental services may go over the $1,800 limit if shown to be medically needed. The Medi‑Cal Dental Program provides the following free or low-cost services for adults:
Your mouth changes as you age, but there is plenty you can do to keep it in great shape, such as:
No matter your age, you can keep your gums and teeth healthy, strong and pain-free. As an older adult, you are prone to gum disease and other oral health problems, but by brushing twice a day, flossing daily and seeing your dentist regularly, you can lower your risk. Medi‑Cal will pay up to $1,800 in a year for covered dental services. The Medi‑Cal Dental Program provides the following free or low-cost services for seniors:
