Taking children to the dentist from an early age could prevent emergency dentistry.
Ensuring children maintain healthy teeth and gums could limit the chances of them needing expensive dental procedures such as root canal treatments.
This is supported by website HealthNews18, which advises parents to take their children to dental health appointments to prevent future oral health problems.
The need for regular treatment is also highlighted by the high sugar content in the majority of foods favoured by children.
American dental company Brush Buddies has recently launched a Justin Bieber toothbrush in a bid to make the process more fun for youngsters.
The electric toothbrush plays a choice of songs by the pop sensation to encourage young children to clean their teeth for the recommended two minutes.
Brush Buddies also has plans to release Bieber floss and a dental care travel kit to make the procedures more appealing to the age-group.
